TELEFUNKEN Elektroakustik is introducing the new TF39 Copperhead Deluxe large-diaphragm multi-pattern tube microphone at the upcoming AES convention in New York City (booth #231).
The TF39 Copperhead is one of four new microphone designs in the Alchemy Series, the company’s next generation of large-diaphragm condensers. Additional models include the TF29 Copperhead, TF47, and TF51.
The TF39 Copperhead Deluxe is an evolution and expansion of an original TELEFUNKEN mic design intended to provide natural and non-hyped tonality. With the addition of a dual membrane K67-style capsule, allowing for 3-pattern selection between cardioid, omnidirectional, and figure-8, the TF39 Copperhead Deluxe feature set supplies added flexibility and options in the studio.
The cardioid-only version of the mic system is also available as the TF29 Copperhead. Sonically and component-wise, the two microphones are the same.
All models ship in a compact protective case for easier transport and storage. Included are two modern mount options, microphone dust cover, high-flex 7-meter cable, and an American-assembled power supply.
