At the 2007 AES Convention, Telefunken USA is introducing the Ela M 260 ($1,495), a newly constructed version of the small diaphragm condenser microphone first manufactured in 1959. According to Telefunken, the small tube microphone is well-suited for drum overheads and all types of acoustic instruments.
The Ela M 260 features a NOS (New Old Stock) Telefunken EF732 tube and is packaged with a set of three interchangeable capsules (cardioid, hypercardioid, and omnidirectional). The microphone system comes with a wooden microphone box, a 10-meter Gotham Audio cable, an owner''s manual, and a 10-year warranty. Also included is an adaptor to allow the use of some AKG CK series capsules and other capsules made for JZ/Violet and B.L.U.E. systems.
