In 1959, Telefunken ordered a series of microphones from AKG, to replace the Telefunken/Neumann line of microphones. This series included the world famous Ela M 251 and Ela M 250 microphones, as well as the obscure but extraordinary Ela M 270 stereo mic. The remaining two microphones in the series were the Ela M 260 and Ela M 261 small diaphragm microphones, which, until now have been almost completely unknown to recording professionals.
