    Seems like it would be worth trying out.

    Their other mics have been well reviewed. Of course, they're not the original German Telefunkens; a company somehow acquired the rights to the name.

    But supposedly the more expensive ones sound good. I think the full cloned Ela-M 251 is over ten grand. But hey, you get a suitcase with it. ;)

    It looks a lot like an old AKG C12 I had one of those from the 60's that I was given and foolishly sold it for $3000 ten years ago.

    It does. But I believe they make a C-12 copy that's a different model number.

    And three grand wasn't a bad price for a C-12 that long ago.

    Yes the TUBE is the C12 re-issue but I wish I hadnt sold mine not for the money side but because of the sound it had.

    It had only been used in TV a few times in the 60's and when were getting rid of the old mics I got it given along with some classic calrec mics which I still have.

    We chucked all the STC 4038's and the 4033's ribbon mics in the skip!!!!! DOH!!!!!

    The funny thing is that all these classic sounding mics were chucked because in TV they dont want to see the mic in shot so when the smaller stuff came around then all the old stuff had to go.

    That Telefunken looks cool though and I would be interested to hear it.
