The Telefunken CU-29 is a large diaphragm valve condenser microphone by legendary manufacturers Telefunken.

The Telefunken CU-29 “Copperhead” has been developed to delivery the famed Telefunken quality, craftsmanship and tone to the masses by making it an affordable alternative to higher specced microphones in the range.

Telefunken have left no stone unturned in the production of the Telefunken CU-29, and there were a huge number of revisions to the circuit board design to perfect the flow of current and directivity of the traces. Every component has been tried, tested and experimented with before being individually selected to provide the best possible qualities, both electronically and sonically. Due care and attention has been paid to high impedance paths in order to keep them as short as possible, minimising noise.

The Telefunken CU-29 uses a fine tuned amp design the uses a 6AK5W Telefunken valve and Lundahl LL1935 transformer. As a cardioid mic, the Telefunken CU-29 uses just a single membrane version of the same capsule that is used in the AK-47 and AR-51 microphones. In terms of the sound, the Telefunken CU-29 is incredibly high fidelity, that has a smooth presence without being harsh. Detail and clarity come in spades, giving a remarkably well performing mic given the price point.

The low end is clear and warm on the Telefunken CU-29, which combined with the smooth highs and soft “air” gives a beautiful sounding microphone suited to a huge range of applications.
