The Telefunken M60 FET Cardioid microphone package includes one M60 amplifier paired with a TK60 cardioid polar pattern capsule. The TK60 features a 6-micron gold-sputtered membrane measuring 15 mm in diameter, with a surprisingly full low end and a quick, accurate transient response. The frequency response 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.

Capture every acoustic detail with an FET condenser

The M60 FET mic offers an incredibly quick transient response, perfect for capturing the nuances and subtleties of acoustic instruments with impressive precision and clarity. This results in an extremely detailed sonic image with definition and presence, especially suited for the complex character of stringed instruments and percussive sources.

Re-designed circuits for exceptionally clean sound

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 especially low self-noise and a typical THD+N of 0.015% or better, making it ideal for critical recording applications.

Classic, elegant design puts the focus on the music

The M60 FET amplifier body is finished in a durable, lightly textured black powder coat adorned with the historic Telefunken diamond badge. The 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.

A suite of accessories in a portable package

The M60 FET Cardioid microphone system ships complete with a SGMC-5R 5-meter XLR cable with right angle female connector, M761 elastic shock mount and a foam windscreen, all packed into a ZC61 zipper carrying case.
