Telefunken Elektroakustik TF29 Copperhead Condenser Mic

Evolution of the CU-29 large-diaphragm condenser microphone accurately and honestly capturing vocals, acoustic and electric guitar, drums, and more
MFR# TF29

Product Description

The Telefunken Elektroakustik TF29 Copperhead is an evolution of the CU-29 Copperhead, an original TELEFUNKEN Elektroakustik design that garnered fans for its natural and non-hyped tonality and unparalleled “quality for price”. The TF29 continues this reputation of outstanding sonic performance and value. It’s a workhorse microphone, accurately and honestly capturing vocals, acoustic and electric guitar, drums, and nearly any source put in front of it.

The TF29 features a new old stock American-made 5654W vacuum tube, all-brass K67-style capsule, and a premium Swedish-made Lundahl output transformer. These components create a balanced frequency response and natural tonality, making the TF29 a trusty go-to choice.

Every TF29 Copperhead microphone system comes with a fixed pattern M 902 Power Supply, M 803 Tube Microphone Cable, ZC03 Shell Case, M 703 Shock Mount, M 782 Stand Mount, and Microphone Sleeve.

Features:

  • Designed and assembled by hand in the USA
  • Pleasant, natural mid range
  • Extended low frequency response
  • Stand out antique copper finish
  • Premium EU-made Lundahl transformer

Applications:

  • Natural vocals, bluegrass, folk, and Americana styles
  • Electric guitar
  • Kick out and drum overheads
  • Saxophone
  • Upright piano
  • Banjo


Telefunken Alchemy Series

Designed, hand-built, and tested to strict quality standards in Connecticut, USA, the Alchemy Series is TELEFUNKEN Elektroakustik’s next generation of large diaphragm tube condensers. These new microphone models feature unique sonic profiles developed from the ground up. The bold new voicings of the Alchemy Series are the TF29, TF39, TF47, and TF51.

With the combination of vintage microphone elements and modern fidelity and reliability, the Alchemy Series delivers microphones each with a distinctively original sonic fingerprint. The Alchemy Series is an evolution and refinement to past models in the R-F-T Series (CU-29 Copperhead, AR-51, and AK-47 MkII), benefitting from over a decade of in-house microphone design and production.

TELEFUNKEN Elektroakustik has implemented numerous improvements sonically and mechanically to the Alchemy Series, tailored all the way down to the accessories. Boasting newly designed custom headgrilles for transparency and openness, hand-plugged circuit boards, and selected American and European vacuum tubes and transformers, no detail was left unaddressed. All systems ship in a sleek, compact, protective case for easy transport and storage. Included are two modern mount options, microphone dust cover, high-flex 7-meter cable, and an American-assembled power supply.

Like all TELEFUNKEN microphones, the Alchemy Series is assembled in the same American facility as the legendary Diamond Series (ELA M 251E, C12 and U47) by a small, dedicated team of engineers and technicians. Each microphone is individually tested and listened to. All critical components are quality controlled in-house before assembly, including capsule frequency sweeps, vacuum tube burn-in and noise grading. These high standards lead to extremely tight tolerances from microphone to microphone - something few in the industry can claim.

The ideal choice for discerning engineers, musicians, and producers. The Alchemy Series combines timeless sound quality with TELEFUNKEN reliability in an affordable package. Whether it’s the home studio or a commercial facility, the Alchemy Series is suited for any recording environment.

I was lucky enough to have the Telefunken rep (a good friend) sell me his demo unit a couple of years ago and this mic has ended up my go-to mic. It's kind of amazing how similar it sounds to the U87, given the tube aspect...but to me, it's so very close that I could hardly tell them apart. This allowed me to sell one of my U87s and allocate some funds to other needs/wants. Anyway, great mic...seriously under rated and should be much more popular.

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.

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.
