Get the Classic Telefunken Sound with the Telefunken TF11 FET Studio Condenser Microphone

Blending an Austrian-inspired voicing similar to the legendary C12 with modern FET high performance, the phantom-powered TF11 exhibits a beautifully open and detailed frequency response with exceptionally fast transient response, high SPL handling, and low self-noise. The compact, cardioid only TF11 is versatile, portable, and dependable for all recording environments from home to studio to stage.

Circuit Design

The TF11 features a unique combination of circuit elements shared with other TELEFUNKEN Elektroakustik designs.

Premium through-hole components include UK-made polystyrene film capacitors, Nichicon Fine Gold electrolytic capacitors, and a high-performance, ultra-low-noise JFET amplifier.
