Say ‘Hello’ to the happy couple!


Meet the newest addition to Loft Studios’ gang of microphones, both from Telefunken: the glamorous M80 Dynamic and the stylish, vintage-looking CU29 Copperhead condenser.

Telefunken Mics

The Copperhead came about as the result of almost two years of experimentation in the Telefunken labs, as they tried to create a cardioid-only condenser mic using tubes. With tips and advice from some of the industry’s foremost designers and technicians, Telefunken created a great-looking microphone that delivers a polished, natural sound with no nasty peaks and troughs, and a smooth but very lively high-end and comfortable, underpinning bass — just the kind of vocals that sit right in the centre of a recording while everything else flows around them. The Copperhead performs well with acoustic guitar, and does a good job with percussion, too, but it’s a vocal mic at heart.

Featuring a wider frequency response and strong SPL capabilities, the M80 delivers condenser-like performance in a rugged dynamic design, producing a microphone equally suitable for voice, instruments or drums, both on stage and in the studio.

These swish-looking mics are begging to be sung at, so come on down and give them a shot!
