Telefunken AR-51 Valve Microphone

The Telefunken AR-51 is a high quality tube condenser that draws inspiration from the classic C12 and ELA M 251E microphones. It provides a smooth mid-range, open top end, and solid, well-balanced low frequency translation.

The AR-51 features the amplifier electronics of a C12 and ELA M 251E and pairs them with a dual sided large diaphragm TK51D capsule. At the core of the R-F-T AR-51 amplifier is a NOS ECC81 vacuum tube, which is coupled with the same German built Haufe T14/1 output transformer found in the C12 and ELA M 251E.

Each AR-51 microphone comes complete with M901 power supply, M801 25' dual-shielded TX-7 tube microphone cable, M701 elastic shock mount and wooden microphone box.
