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 is the custom American made power supply, shockmount, hand wired Mogami cable, and a smart looking aluminum carrying case.
