Telefunken Elektroakustik introduces at the NAMM Show 2012 two new mics, the dynamic M81 and the ELA M 260 stereo set.


The new M81 is designed to have a more linear frequency response than the company’s M80. The new M81 is described as a tool that is a bit less specialized, giving the microphone more universal application ability, according to the company.

The M81's frequency response is designed to attenuate the high end, making the mic suited on electric guitars, percussion instruments, rack and floor toms, as well as horns, especially the trumpet. It is also fit for vocals. The M81 is finished in the same gray and “tri-chrome” styling as the R-F-T AR-51.

Pricing & Availability

The package, including the microphone, mic clip and leather carrying bag, sells for $249.


ELA M 260 Stereo Set

The new ELA M 260 Tube Microphone Stereo Set comes with 3 capsules for each microphone, plus one dual power supply and flight case.

Each microphone in the Stereo Set features 3 capsules (260 cardioid, 261 omni-directional, and 262 hyper-cardioid). The new M 960S is designed to provide power to both microphones from a single power supply. Also included are two 25’ Accusound tube microphone cables with right angle XLR connectors, two wooden microphone jewel boxes, two shock-mounts, and a flight cas. The microphones also feature NOS Telefunken EF732 vacuum tubes, custom audio transformers, and come in the same “flint gray” finish made popular by the R-F-T AR-51 microphone.


Also now available is the ELA M 260 Stereo Field Recording Set with interchangeable capsules, Novuscell 20-hour rechargeable battery pack, charger, and accessories.
