TELEFUNKEN Elektroakustik is introducing stereo sets from its Alchemy Series of large-diaphragm microphones at the upcoming NAMM 2020 show (booth #15121). The stereo sets begin shipping February 2020.
Alchemy Matched Stereo Sets
The TF29 Copperhead, TF39 Copperhead Deluxe, TF47 and TF51 microphone systems being offered in matched stereo sets have a custom dual power supply capable of powering both microphones at one time, as well as a locking flight case that contains two microphones, cables, and shock mounts. All electronic components in each system are matched sonically and electronically, including matched capsules, transformers, and vacuum tubes.
TF29 Copperhead & TF39 Copperhead Stereo Sets
The TF29 Copperhead, an evolution of the CU-29 Copperhead, is a workhorse microphone, designed to accurately and transparently capture vocals, acoustic and electric guitar, drums, and virtually any musical source. The TF39 Copperhead Deluxe is an expansion of the “Copperhead” sound with the addition of a dual membrane K67-style capsule, allowing for 3-pattern selection between cardioid, omnidirectional, and figure-8.
TF47 Stereo Sets
The TF47 is a new design based on the “German” sound, drawing inspiration from the U47 and M49. It is designed to add depth and presence to any source, characteristics that make it a choice for recording vocals, guitar amps, and drums. The signature is intended to deliver a warm and punchy sound reminiscent of the U47 with a pleasant top end articulation.
TF51 Stereo Sets
The TF51 is a fresh take on the “Austrian” microphone sound associated with the Telefunken ELA M 251E and C12. It is designed to exhibit a smooth midrange and airy top end, capturing nuances in detail. It is a choice for stand out vocals, acoustic instruments, and percussion.
