ADK Z-251 Tube Microphone

Sku: Z-251 Silver

The Telefunken ELAM 251 is one of those mics that just don’t get sold. They sit in the studios cabinet and there it stays – unless it’s needed for a session that is. You can buy a current version from Telefunken which sounds great but at $14000 it’s not within the reach of the studio guy wanting that classic 251 tone but is on a tight budget. Meet the ADK Z-251. This is by far the best re creation of that classic ELAM 251 but at a much more reasonable price. At just under half the price you get a no compromise faithful 251 from US Boutique mic manufacturer ADK. There are side by side audio comparisons between these two microphones where it’s borderline as to which one you would prefer. This mic is killer. It comes with Tweed case, power supply, extra tubes, cable, pop filter and shock mount.
