U48 Stereo Set
TELEFUNKEN Elektroakustik is proud to offer matched stereo sets of the U48 microphones. Each system features a custom dual power supply capable of powering both microphones at one time, and a special locking flight case that will carry both sets of microphones, cables, wooden boxes, and the dual power supply.
In keeping with the long standing tradition, TELEFUNKEN Elektroakustik have given a nod back to 1958 when both the U47 and U48 were offered in 3 unique packages. The U47 and U48 were both offered in what was called a "Stereo Set" that featured a sequentially serial numbered pair of U47 or U48 microphones with a dual [two microphone capable] power supply, and the "Studio Set," which was a single U47 that was matched to a U48.
The TELEFUNKEN U48 Stereo Set will allow versed recording engineers a variety of stereo recording techniques, including X/Y coincidental pairs when utilizing the mics in their cardioid patterns, or A/B spaced pairs. The option of a Blumlein pair is also available with both microphones set to figure of 8, as well as the traditional M/S (mid / side) technique when using one mic in cardioid and the other in figure of 8.
Every component in each of the two TELEFUNKEN U48 microphones is hand-selected, allowing as close a match as is possible between each system. Capsules are tuned to each other; transformers and tube are tested for matched gain and frequency response. These sets offer the user the knowledge and comfort that the tools they are using will give identical responses for their most important stereo recording.
Each U48 Stereo Set comes complete with a dual M940S power supply, two M840 25’ dual-shielded Somner tube microphone cables, two WB40 wooden microphone boxes and a FC40S locking flight case.
