Telefunken M260 Tri-Mono Set



The Telefunken ELA M260 Tri-Mono Set is 3 small diaphragm tube condenser microphones designed to create a strong sense of stereo field when recording/Micking classical music/orchestras. The Tri-Mono microphone technique was originally used in the 1950’s and would be placed close to the orchestra conductor. ELA M260 has a natural presence and lots of definition and clarity which has made it a popular choice for a multitude of acoustic and classical applications.

Each ELA M260 features 3 interchangeable capsules: the TK60 cardioid, TK61 omni, and TK62 hypercardioid, so the user can have the flexibility to record their source material in any way they wish. The Telefunken ELA M260 Tri-Mono Set features the newly designed 3 channel American made power supply which can power all 3 microphones or 1 individually and features a slow-ramping heater voltage to ensure vacuum tube longevity.
