The Telefunken AR-51 is a large diaphragm valve condenser microphone from the R-F-T series of Telefunken microphones.

Still delivering the incredible tone that only a valve Telefunken can produce, these mics are priced at a point that is attainable by even the most humble of sound engineers.

The Telefunken AR-51 results from the desire to create a high end, detailed valve mic at an affordable price. Using the amp circuitry of a C 12 and ELA M 251E, the Telefunken AR-51 brings the best of the amplifying technologies in those two legendary models and combines them with a TK15D capsule. This capsule is a dual membrane design with a large surface area, meaning the bass response is extended and smoother, while there is an open and natural high end response. This edge termina…

This edge terminated capsule is similar in sonics to the beautiful ELA M and C12 microphones

At the heart of the amplifier circuitry in the Telefunken AR-51 is an ECC81 valve, which is a New Old Stock valve built to the exact specs as the original. This is coupled with the German transformer that’s also found in the high end C12 and ELA M Telefunken mics.

Plugged in, the Telefunken AR-51 is an incredibly versatile microphone, delivering a solid and balanced low end, smooth mids and open high end. Great on anything from vocals to drums to brass, the Telefunken AR-51 is an incredible tool in a sound engineer’s arsenal.
