The TF51 is a fresh take on the "Austrian" microphone sound associated with the Telefunken ELA M 251E and C12. The TF51 continues this legacy, exhibiting a smooth mid-range and airy top end, capturing every nuance in pleasant detail. This is a reliable first choice for stand out vocals, acoustic instruments, and percussion.

6072A Vacuum Tube
The 6072A vacuum tube (also found in the ELA M 251E and C12) is known for outstanding performance in vacuum tube microphones, making the TF51 Telefunken's lowest self-noise circuit.

TK51D Large Diaphragm Capsule
The TK51D dual-sided gold-sputtered capsule exhibits a smooth mid-range and airy top end, capturing every nuance in pleasant detail.

Custom German-Made Haufe Audio Transformer
A custom German-made Haufe audio output transformer (the original manufacturer for Telefunken) offers life-like fidelity, resulting in a microphone with a beautifully open and smooth sonic profile.
