Styled after the legendary vintage ELA M 251, the Peluso 22 251 Tube Microphone pays homage to the rare and coveted microphones produced for Telefunken GmbH by AKG in the 1960s. The ELA M 251 holds a special place in audio history, and the Peluso 22 251 faithfully recreates its essence with meticulous attention to detail.
Vintage Inspiration: Modeled after the iconic ELA M 251, the Peluso 22 251 embraces the legacy of one of the rarest and most sought-after vintage microphones, capturing the essence of its predecessor's sonic character.
Premium Components: The microphone features a double-sided 34mm dual-backplate, edge-terminated gold-coated Mylar capsule, and a 6072A glass triode tube, ensuring top-notch quality in both construction and sound reproduction.
T/14 Output Transformer: Employing the T/14 output transformer, the Peluso 22 251 preserves the classic characteristics of the vintage design while incorporating modern engineering for reliability and performance.
Circuitry Distinctions: While staying true to the heritage of the ELA M 251, the 22 251 differs in the handling of the tube grid and cathode, providing approximately 7 dB more gain compared to the P-12. The larger head grille also alters the frequency response, contributing to a distinctive sonic signature.
Versatile Polar Patterns: With 9 selectable polar patterns, the microphone offers flexibility for various recording scenarios, allowing users to tailor the capture to specific sound sources and environments.
