MFR# ELA M 251E STEREO SET

Product Description

TELEFUNKEN Elektroakustik is proud to offer the TELEFUNKEN Elektroakustik ELA M 251E Stereo Set, featuring 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.

The ELA M 251E is arguably the greatest large diaphragm tube microphone ever built. Sought after by the world's best recording engineers, producers, and musicians in the know, the ELA M 251E offers a real-life sonic characteristic second to no other recording tool or microphone. The microphone features a new CK12 capsule (built from the original manufacturers technical specifications), a European made output transformer built to match the original, and a microphone-grade Electro Harmonix 6072a vacuum tube.

Stereo microphone techniques are often used for recording classical music and large signal sources like orchestra, choirs, and large chamber groups. They can also effectively be used on drum overheads, acoustic guitars, piano, and percussion. The TELEFUNKEN ELA M 251E 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 while using the mics in either cardioid or omni. 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 cardiod and the other in figure of 8.

Every component in the each of the two TELEFUNKEN ELA M 251E 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 ELA M 251E STEREO SET comes complete with a dual M950ES power supply, 2x M850E 25' dual-shielded ACX-7 tube microphone cable, 2x WB50 wooden microphone boxes and a FC10 locking flight case.

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.
Michael D.
From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
