Telefunken CU-29 CopperheadAnaheim, CA (January 11, 2011)–Telefunken Elektroakustik will debut its CU-29 “Copperhead” condenser mic and M80-WH wireless mic capsule head at Winter NAMM.
Telefunken’s CU-29 large diaphragm condenser microphone has been in development for 18 months and was designed by the in-house engineering team, with outside consultation from noted amplifier designers.
The new CU-29 Copperhead is based around a circuit that features a New Old Stock (NOS) Telefunken vacuum tube, custom audio transformer, and a fixed cardioid large diaphragm capsule. According to Telefunken, the microphone exhibits similar characteristics found in the AR-51 and the AK-47 MkII.
Meanwhile, originally developed for Green Day, the M80-WH dynamic wireless capsule is now available for use in live sound applications. These capsule head replacements are interchangeable with any of the screw-on-type handheld transmitters that receive a 31.3mm/pitch 1.0mm threading.
Telefunken Elektroakustik’s latest offerings will be on-hand at Winter NAMM in Anaheim, Booth #1874.
