Telefunken's new large-diaphragm condenser microphone, the CU-29, has been in development for 18 months. The CU-29 Copperhead was designed by the in-house engineering team, with outside consultation from top amplifier designers. The CU-29 Copperhead (pictured) is based around a unique circuit that features a New Old Stock (NOS) Telefunken vacuum tube, custom audio transformer and a fixed-cardioid large-diaphragm capsule. Sonically, the microphone exhibits similar characteristics found in its R-F-T Series counterparts, the AR-51 and the AK-47 MkII.  

Originally developed for Green Day, the M80-WH dynamic wireless capsule is now available for a wide variety of 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. The M80-WH capsule's directional pickup pattern and wide frequency response yields a microphone that provides a blend of functionality, isolation and a pleasing tone. The new M80-WH is sonically open, requiring little or no EQ to fit into a live or recorded mix. Minimal proximity effect gives the dynamic capsule a smooth, balanced presence that is neither boomy nor overpowering.

Find out more information about the CU-29 and M80-WH.
