Telefunken TF29 – The Return of the Copperhead!

Inspired by the classic CU-29 Copperhead microphone, The TELEFUNKEN Elektroakustik’s TF29 Copperhead offers the same natural, clean sound and amazing quality for the price.  The TF29 Copperhead accurately and pristinely captures vocals, acoustic and electric guitar, drums, or really anything you put in front of it.

Key Features:

  • Clean, transparent, natural sound inspired by the classic CU-29 Copperhead microphone
  • Extremely pleasant mid range
  • Extended low-frequency response
  • Stand out antique copper finish

Microphone Alchemy

The TF29 Copperhead is part of the Alchemy Series, TELEFUNKEN Elektroakustik’s next generation of large diaphragm tube condensers. They are inspired by past TELEFUNKEN models in the R-F-T Series (the CU-29 Copperhead, AR-51, and AK-47 MkII).  While the mics in the Alchemy Series are inspired by these classic models, they are by no means clones. Instead, they are the next step in the evolution of these classic sounds, keeping the main traits of the originals, but refining and improving them for the modern era.

Highest Quality Components

As you would expect from a company with a reputation like TELEFUNKEN Elektroakustik, the TF29 Copperhead is made using the highest quality components.  Each TF29 Copperhead has an American-made 5654W vacuum tube, an all-brass K67-style capsule, and a premium Swedish-made Lundahl output transformer.  These excellent components allow for balanced frequency response and a surprisingly natural sound.

Countless Applications

With such a transparent sound, the TF29 Copperhead sounds great on almost anything you put in front of it.  Acoustic instruments such as drums (especially when used as overheads or room mics), guitar, saxophone, and upright piano will all benefit from its clean, accurate frequency response.  Maybe most of all, the TF29 Copperhead is a perfect choice for recording natural sounding vocals for genres like Folk or Americana.  It leaves the performance uncolored, letting the natural beauty of the vocal shine through.

Extreme Value

It’s hard to imagine a mic with better quality to dollar ratio.  For a price that won’t break the bank, discerning audiophiles can get the kind of balanced frequency response and transparent sound often associated with microphones that cost many times as much.  The TF29 Copperhead truly is a workhorse mic that will sound good on practically anything.  This makes it an excellent choice for people who want a great mic that they can use in countless applications.
