The Telefunken CU-29 Copperhead large-diaphragm tube condenser mic gives you warm, clear bass, detailed midrange, and the silky high-end airiness of mics costing many times more. To deliver such an outstanding price/performance ratio, Telefunken gave the CU-29 a fixed cardioid polar pattern, but this US-made gem doesn't skimp on component quality. Its NOS Telefunken tube, Lundahl output transformer, and other top-drawer parts give this mic an open-sounding and sonically pleasing response. Want an affordable go-to mic for everything from vocals to drums? AudioBuy.com.au Australia's got it: Telefunken's CU-29 Copperhead.Telefunken CU-29 Copperhead Large-diaphragm Cardioid Tube Condenser Mic at a Glance
- Meticulously selected parts
- A valued addition to your mic locker
Spurred on by the discovery of a sizable cache of new-old-stock Telefunken tubes that were deemed suitable for microphone applications, Telefunken set sail on a 15-month quest to design a great-sounding cardioid-only large-diaphragm tube condenser mic and bring it to market at an affordable price. They experimented with components, selecting only the best-sounding, most stable ones for inclusion in this amazing mic. High-impedance runs were kept as short as possible to minimize noise. They auditioned an array of output transformers to find the one that delivered the most open-sounding and sonically pleasing response. The NOS 6AK5W Telefunken tube and the Lundahl LL1935 output transformer ultimately made the cut, along selected American-designed electronics and overseas-sourced parts. The result - the CU-29 Copperhead - is, however, more than the sum of its parts.A valued addition to your mic locker
The Telefunken CU-29 Copperhead isn't a re-creation of an existing classic mic design - or even a variation on a theme. With its warm, clear bass, detailed midrange, and a silky high-end airiness that you expect in mics that cost many times more, the CU-29's unique character and rich sonic texture will be a valued addition to your mic locker.Cardioid-only?
You bet. If you had to choose only one polar pattern for all the mics in your studio, cardioid would be the one. Although we certainly recommend having omnidirectional and figure-8 microphones in your mic locker for tricky recording setups and advanced stereo miking techniques, your cardioid mics will be your "go-to" mics for the vast majority of recording and sound-reinforcement tasks. A great-sounding cardioid tube condenser mic like the Telefunken CU-29 Copperhead will enjoy constant use in your studio.Telefunken CU-29 Copperhead Large-diaphragm Cardioid Tube Condenser Mic Features
