Complete Decca wood setup
If you work with classical film music or general orchestra and choir recording, here is the ultimate package with the combination of three classic Ela M260 microphones combined with a Decca wood setup. The Decca tree was developed for recording classical music for Decca Records in the 1950s, where they wanted a strong stereo image coupled with the mono recording's ability to focus and thus the ability to balance the recording.
The technique involves an inverted "T" which is placed over the head of the conductor with the two stereo microphones placed behind the conductor and the mono microphone in front.
The brushed tube microphone Ela M260 is without a doubt one of the industry's finest microphones for acoustic and classical recording. The compact microphone has an exceptional detail, clarity and depth that captures every nuance in music and performance. Developed in the late 1950s for the legendary Ela M251 / 250 series, the Ela M260 quickly became known as one of the absolute best microphones for classic recordings. The Ela M series was created in collaboration with AKG as a replacement in Telefunken's range for Neumann-produced models.
Ela M260 Tri-Mono comes with three types of capsules, TK60 - kidney, TK61 - Ball and finally TK-62 super kidney which gives a fantastic flexibility during sessions.
Ela M260 is equipped with a NOS EF-732 / 5840W tube and a custom out-put transformer which together with the rest of the construction makes this microphone so good-sounding.
Ela M260 is delivered complete with 3-channel power supply, three pcs. 10 meter M801 tube-microphone cable, shock mounts and wooden storage box.
