TELEFUNKEN Elektroakustik is a world-class audio equipment manufacturer located in South Windsor, CT, offering a wide array of products focusing on the highest quality vacuum tube-based condenser microphones and dynamic microphones. TELEFUNKEN Elektroakustik microphones are built to a standard, not a price.
They strive for absolute perfection. By offering historic recreations of classic microphones alongside their own proprietary designs based around the distinctive tube mic sound, they have established a product line that perfectly blends vintage style and sound with the reliability of a modern-day microphone. Their commitment to both the sonic excellence and quality of all of their products is rivaled only by our dedication to provide the BEST possible service to each and every one of their customers.
TELEFUNKEN Elektroakustik Diamond Series microphones are some of the finest and truest recreations available on the market today, offering meticulous reproductions of classic vintage microphones including the ELA M 251, U47, and C12, recreated to exacting details to the originals.
The design concept for the R-F-T Series was to utilize standardized metalwork and structural chassis from overseas as the microphone platform, then design and build the circuits inside of them in the USA. This practice cut out a substantial portion of the overhead costs of custom metalwork and molding, therefore allowing TELEFUNKEN to provide a lower cost alternative to the premium Diamond Series without compromising sonic quality.
As TELEFUNKEN moves forward, one foot is rooted in the rich history of the brand, and the other in new microphone innovations. TELEFUNKEN has evolved exponentially from a single pattern switch to one of the industry leaders in top quality microphones.
