TELEFUNKEN Elektroakustik introduces the new ELA M 251 T, a microphone featuring the newly developed CK13™ capsule. While based upon the classic ELA M 251 models, the Telefunken ELA M 251T adds a very modern twist. That twist is the implementation of Alloy 2213™ as the diaphragm membrane material for the CK13™ capsule. Alloy 2213™ is an amalgam of Titanium and Aluminum, which was originally developed for the aerospace industry.
The ELA M 251 T System comes complete with capsule, amplifier featuring a NOS Siemens ECC801S vacuum tube, power supply, and 4-year warranty. Included in the package is a standmount cable connector, ruggedly-built power supply, wooden microphone box, and a locking tweed flight case.
