This new addition to the PEARLMAN line is a limited edition, custom order recreation of the famous Telefunken 250. Starting at the top this microphone utilizes a C12 type capsule hand-made in Denmark by Tim Campbell. A genuine AKG™ CK-12 capsule can be installed (whenever they are available) for an additional price. Old style carbon resistors are used in the audio circuit to maintain the original sound. A select 6072 (12AY7) tube is hand picked and tested for use in the microphone as only the best tubes will be used. The CINEMAG output transformer is an accurate replica of the original part from a sixties era Tele 250 and delivers that beautiful, vintage smoothness. All mics are still hand-made one at a time and are wired point-to-point. Included in the system are the custom American made power supply, shockmount, hand wired Mogami cable, and a complimentary aluminum carrying case for protection during shipping.

Dave Pearlman’s done it again… TM-250

251 style mics are pretty common for this application, to be sure. But gosh, I think there are a variety of mics out there that can give you that sound, I also think that other mics can do a great job too, and I think having a good pre and compressor are important as well. I’m...
