Telefunken Launches Alchemy series of Tube Condenser Mics




Telefunken Elektroakustik has unveiled the Alchemy series contains four new large diaphragm tube condenser microphones. This new series contains TF29, TF39, TF47 and TF51 features unique sonic profiles developed from the ground up.

The Alchemy Series is assembled America by a team of engineers and technicians. Each microphone is individually tested and listened to, and all critical components are quality-controlled in-house before assembly, including capsule frequency sweeps, vacuum tube burn-in and noise grading.

TF29 Copperhead

This model is the evolution of the CU-29 and designed to deliver a natural, not overly hyped sound. With a cardioid polar pattern, it is meant to be a workhorse microphone for vocals, acoustic and electric guitars, drums, and many other sound sources. The circuitry is based on a new old stock 5654W tube, a brass K67-style capsule and a Lundahl output transformer.

TF39 Copperhead Deluxe

The TF39 is similar to the TF29, but features three selectable polar patterns: Cardioid, omni, and figure-8. While offering the same sonic characteristics as the TF29, this makes the TF39 more flexible and provides more options in the studio.

TF47

As the name implies, the TF47 draws inspiration from the U47 and M49 classics. It features a brass K47-style capsule, a new old stock 5840W vacuum tube and a custom-made BV8 transformer. Telefunken claims that the result is a warm and punchy sound with a forward midrange and a detailed top end. They recommend this mic for R&B, rap and soul vocals, upright bass, trombone, cello and percussion, among others.

TF51

Designed to deliver an “Austrian” sound, the TF51 is inspired by the ELA M 251E and C12. It is based on an edge-terminated style capsule and a 6072A vacuum tube. In the output stage, it employs a custom transformer by Haufe, whose name is closely associated with historic Telefunken mics. With a smooth midrange and airy top end, the TF51 seems to be a good choice for vocals, acoustic instruments, and percussion.
