A Tri-Mono package for the ELA M 260 system consists of three ELA M 260 microphones, a 3-channel power supply capable of powering all three microphones, three elastic shock mounts, and a set of three 10-meter AccuSound TX-7 tube mic cables with right angle XLR connectors. In order to foster an element of creativity, all three capsule systems (TK60 cardioid, TK61 omnidirectional, and TK62 hypercardioid) are included in the package, along with a set of diffuse field spheres.

Sonic Characteristic
In use, the ELA M 260 has plenty of tone with excellent detail and clarity. It captures sources with a natural presence, making it a fantastic tool for recording acoustic instruments of all types. Violin, cello, upright bass, drum overheads, percussion, woodwinds, saxophones, strings, and especially acoustic guitar all shine through the ELA M 260. Also, despite its size, it has also served well on vocal applications. Its unique tonal character is very well suited for a myriad of applications, both traditional and not.

Circuit Design
The ELA M 260 system features a circuit design based around a New Old Stock (NOS) EF732 / 5840W vacuum tube and a custom output transformer that is wound to exacting specification in the United States. The combination of these features yields a small diaphragm microphone that is unique while also bearing the qualities of the vintage microphones that it was based upon.

Features:

  • Set of 3 pressure gradient condenser microphones
  • Cardioid, Omindirectional, and Hypercardioid (Interchangeable Capsules)
  • New Old Stock (NOS) EF732 / 5840W vacuum tube and a custom output transformer
  • Ideal for the Decca Tree recording technique
