Ideal for a wide variety of applications, live or in studio. Your results for overheads, choirs, acoustic instruments and many other high detail signals and signals with broad capture area will improve dramatically relative to common overhead and boundary solutions.
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 Cardiod comes with an M60 FET amplifier with TK60 cardioid capsules that. The frequency response of the TK60 capsule cardioid 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 stringed 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 Cardiod ships complete with (1) TK60 cardioid capsules, (1) SGMC-5R 5-meter XLR cables with right angle female connector, (1) M761 elastic shock mounts, and (1) foam windscreen, all packed in a zipper carrying case.
