newTelefunken Telefunken ELA M 251E

E version of the famed Telefunken ELAM 251 Reissue
  • Description
  • Features

The Telefunken ELA M 251E is a large diaphragm valve microphone, and is a new faithful reproduction of the origin 251E, manufactured by Telefunken themselves.

The structural system in the Telefunken ELA M 251E uses a plastic enclosure to house the amplifier while the capsule is held in place by metal struts the run up the side of the amp housing. This is designed such that either part of the mic can be repaired quickly, minimising downtime on critical sessions. This proved incredibly popular with broadcasters at the time the mic first came out.

This system while practical was quite expensive to manufacturer, meaning that fewer than 4000 units were sold, making the original Telefunken ELA M 251E an incredibly rare microphone, as it was discontinued in 1965. Prime examples of the E and non E ELA M mics are highly sought after and rare pieces of kit, each fetching many thousands of pounds each.
