Telefunken’s Alchemy Microphones are a Perfect Pair

This Valentine's Day we're celebrating a few of our favorite new couples.

Announced late last year, Telefunken’s Alchemy TF29, TF39, TF47, and TF51 Stereo-Matched pairs features Telefunken’s trademark build quality at competitive prices.

Explore Alchemy Stereo Sets

Telefunken Alchemy TF29 Copperhead Stereo Set

The TF29 Copperhead is an evolution of the CU-29 Copperhead, an original TELEFUNKEN Elektroakustik design that garnered fans for its natural and non-hyped tonality and unparalleled “quality for price”. 

Telefunken Alchemy TF39 Copperhead Deluxe Stereo Set

The TF39 Copperhead Deluxe is an expansion of the “Copperhead” sound with the addition of a dual membrane K67-style capsule, allowing for 3-pattern selection between cardioid, omnidirectional, and figure-8. This added feature set gives the TF39 greater flexibility and options in the studio. Sonically and component-wise, the two microphones are otherwise the same.

Telefunken TF47 Stereo Set

The TF47 is a new design based on the “German” sound, drawing inspiration from the historic U47 and M49. With a deep low end and a forward midrange, the TF47 is excellent for adding depth and presence to any source. These characteristics make it especially ideal for recording vocals, guitar amps, and drums. The T47 delivers a warm and punchy sound reminiscent of the U47 with a pleasant top-end articulation that easily sits in a mix.

Telefunken TF51 Stereo Set

The TF51 is a fresh take on the “Austrian” microphone sound associated with the Telefunken ELA M 251E and C12. The TF51 continues this legacy, exhibiting a smooth midrange and airy top end, capturing every nuance in pleasant detail. This is a reliable first choice for stand out vocals, acoustic instruments, and percussion.

Why Alchemy Series Mics?

Handmade in the USA

Like all TELEFUNKEN microphones, the Alchemy Microphone Series is assembled in the same American facility as the legendary Diamond Series (ELA M 251E, C12 and U47) by a small, dedicated team of engineers and technicians. Each microphone is individually tested and listened to. 

New Features, Tested Fuctionality

With the combination of vintage microphone elements and modern fidelity and reliability, the Alchemy Microphone Series delivers microphones each with a distinctively original sonic fingerprint.
