telefunken Elam 260
Since I own several models of Telefunken, now elektroakustik, I can attest that the 260 is on the top of my list and probably one of Telefunken best model manufactured to date. I have in my locker 251, Ak47, M16MK2, 260 and m80.
I also have a C12 next door if I need to use it. Anyone who is interested in recording should own at least one (or a pair) of 260 and a M16MK2. These soon discontinued mics would be classics in a couple of years. I love them.
