Telefunken Elektroakustik M60 FET Condenser Mic Stereo Set

Set of M60 FET amplifiers paired with two matched TK60 cardioid polar pattern capsules - ideal for stereo recording applications
MFR# M60 Stereo Set

Product Description

With over a year and half of development and beta testing with top recording engineers, the newly designed M60 FET (Field Effect Transistor) small diaphragm microphone is TELEFUNKEN Elektroakustik's first non-vacuum tube, FET-based solid-state condenser microphone. The M60 FET Series is designed to utilize the same interchangeable TK6x capsules as the TEC Award-winning ELA M 260 small diaphragm tube microphone. The M60 FET Cardioid Stereo Set comes with two identical M60 FET amplifiers paired with a matched set of TK60 cardioid polar pattern capsules. The TK60 features a 6-micron gold-sputtered membrane measuring 15mm in diameter, with a surprisingly full low end, and a quick and accurate transient response. The frequency response is flat from 150 Hz to 7 kHz, with a smooth, airy presence peak at 8 kHz making it ideal for drum overheads, hi-hat and ride cymbals, piano, acoustic guitar, and other acoustic instruments. Utilizing a unique proprietary circuit topology, this re-interpretation of the classic FET mic amplifier produces an exceptional transient response and SPL handling capabilities. Carefully selected and tested components are hand-plugged into gold-plated circuit board traces to provide an ultra-clean true Class A discrete amplifier with a frequency response of +/- 2dB from 20 Hz to 50 kHz. The output is matched with a custom American-made transformer that offers an especially low self-noise and a typical THD+N of 0.015% or better, making it ideal for critical recording applications. The M60 FET's incredibly quick transient response captures nuances and subtleties with impressive precision and clarity. This results in an extremely detailed sonic image with definition and presence, perfectly suited for the complex character of string instruments and percussive sources. The M60 FET amplifier body is finished in a durable, lightly textured black powder coat adorned with the historic TELEFUNKEN diamond badge. The microphone's XLR connector shell complements the look with a matte black nickel-plated finish engraved with the model and serial number. The TK6x capsules feature a bright nickel-plated enclosure with a fine gold mesh pattern. The M60 FET Cardioid STEREO SET ships complete with (2) SGMC-5R 5-meter XLR cables with right angle female connector, (2) M761 elastic shock mounts, and (2) foam windscreens, all packed in a FC62 dual microphone zipper carrying case.

I couldn't find much on these before making my purchase so I thought I would leave a review. I have heard a lot of SDCs and needed something for overheads. My first time hearing the play back I turned up the OH track and was instantly happy with my purchase. They offer a HUGE sound with just those two mics. I barley needed to introduce the rest of the mics on the kit.

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.
