Product Description



Special Order Item please allow 10 - 14 days delivery.

With over a year and half of development and beta testing with top recording engineers, the newly designed M60 FET (Field Effect Transistor) small diaphragm microphone is TELEFUNKEN Elektroakustik's first non-vacuum tube, FET-based solid-state condenser microphone. The M60 FET Series is designed to utilize the same interchangeable TK6x capsules as the TEC Award-winning ELA M 260 small diaphragm tube microphone.

 The M60 FET Cardioid Stereo Set comes with two identical M60 FET amplifiers paired with a matched set of TK60 cardioid polar pattern capsules. The TK60 features a 6-micron gold-sputtered membrane measuring 15mm in diameter, with a surprisingly full low end, and a quick and accurate transient response.  The frequency response is flat from 150 Hz to 7 kHz, with a smooth, airy presence peak at 8 kHz making it ideal for drum overheads, hi-hat and ride cymbals, piano, acoustic guitar, and other acoustic instruments.

 Utilizing a unique proprietary circuit topology, this re-interpretation of the classic FET mic amplifier produces an exceptional transient response and SPL handling capabilities. Carefully selected and tested components are hand-plugged into gold-plated circuit board traces to provide an ultra-clean true Class A discrete amplifier with a frequency response of +/- 2dB from 20 Hz to 50 kHz. The output is matched with a custom American-made transformer that offers an especially low self-noise and a typical THD+N of 0.015% or better, making it ideal for critical recording applications.  

 The M60 FET’s incredibly quick transient response captures nuances and subtleties with impressive precision and clarity. This results in an extremely detailed sonic image with definition and presence, perfectly suited for the complex character of string instruments and percussive sources.

 The M60 FET amplifier body is finished in a durable, lightly textured black powder coat adorned with the historic TELEFUNKEN diamond badge. The microphone’s XLR connector shell complements the look with a matte black nickel-plated finish engraved with the model and serial number. The TK6x capsules feature a bright nickel-plated enclosure with a fine gold mesh pattern.

The M60 FET Cardioid STEREO SET ships complete with (2) SGMC-5R 5-meter XLR cables with right angle female connector, (2) M761 elastic shock mounts, and (2) foam windscreens, all packed in a FC62 dual microphone zipper carrying case.

STL Audio - Overhead Comparison Video 04:55

Here's our a video comparing a pair of ART M-Six's and Telefunken Elektroakustic M60's to a pair of vintage Neumann KMi85's. The M-Six's are a very affordable pair of small diaphragm microphones that as the video shows hold there own, while the M60's show they have a completely different take on what a pencil can do. All very interesting - we hope this helps you to make your decision. All microphones are volume matched at the preamp, recorded via the same model of Buzz Preamp the 500 series 'Elixir' by far our favourite for overheads. Recorded at 44.1khz/32bit in Pro Tools 10HD. The full mix examples use the Telefunken M60s. Recorded at STL Audio Wellington, New Zealand. ART Pro Audio M-Six and Telefunken M60's are available from us with free shipping from: You can also email us to join our drop box and download the session/files and listen for yourself: Filmed, Edited, Recorded & Mixed by Troy Kelly (TKO) Thanks to Jacob Randal for his performance and Buzz Audio for the extra Elixirs. Thanks for watching another STL Audio video demo.
