The TF17 is the newest voice in the Alchemy Series and the latest offering of Telefunken’s vintage-inspired phantom-powered condenser microphones. Combining an iconic mid-forward “German” voicing with modern FET technology, the TF17 is sonically bold with a punchy transient response, high SPL handling, and very low self-noise. Its extended low frequency response, strong midrange, and a smooth top end benefit sources including voice, drums, electric guitar, and piano. Designed with all recording environments in mind, the fixed true cardioid TF17 is perfect for home, studio, or stage. The TF17 features a K47-style center-terminated capsule, premium through-hole components and a UK-made OEP/Carnhill transformer with a high-grade nickel-iron core.
