About this item



Telefunken ELA M 260 Stereo Set

The small diaphragm ELA M 260 has become a staple for use in a multitude of recording applications due to its natural presence and high level of detail and clarity, especially in acoustic and classical applications. Keeping this in mind, TELEFUNKEN Elektroakustik is now offering the ELA M 260 Cardioid and ELA M 260 Master (three capsule) systems as matched stereo sets.

The matched ELA M 260 Stereo Set comes in a custom locking flight case that carries both M 860 cables, M 761 shock mounts, microphones, and an American-made dual-channel M 960S power supply unit. This power supply is fully regulated and will power one or both microphones simultaneously, and features a slow-ramping heater voltage to ensure vacuum tube longevity.

The ELA M 260 Stereo Sets also feature interchangeable capsules: the TK60 Cardioid, TK61 Omnidirectional, and TK62 Hypercardioid, so the user can have the flexibility to record their source material in any way they wish. The ELA M 260 Stereo Set offers the user the knowledge and comfort that the tools they are using will give identical responses for their most important stereo recording.

System Configurations and Included Accessories

Each stereo microphone system includes a new M 960S dual power supply, (2x) M 860 25’ dual-shielded TX-7 tube microphone cable with right angle female XLR connector, (2x) M 761 elastic shock mounts, and locking flight case.

ELA M 260 Cardioid Stereo Set system packages are supplied with matched pairs of interchangeable TK60 Cardioid capsules. Additional TK61 Omnidirectional and TK62 Hypercardioid capsules can be purchased and attached separately.

ELA M 260 Master Stereo Set system packages are supplied with a set of three interchangeable capsules: the TK60 Cardioid, TK61 Omnidirectional, and TK62 Hypercardioid. With all three capsules, the user can have the flexibility to record their source material in any way they wish.
