Vintage German tone meets modern tech in a versatile large diaphragm condenser.

The Telefunken TF17 large diaphragm condenser mic brings vintage German microphone voicing into the modern age. With its extended low-end response, prominent midrange and smooth highs, the TF17 is ideal for capturing rich recordings of vocals, drums, bass, guitar and more. Assembled in the USA using premium components like a K47-style capsule and UK-made output transformer, this mic delivers a punchy, high-SPL sound in any recording environment. And thanks to its compact, portable design and phantom power operation, the TF17 gives you vintage tone wherever your music takes you.

Iconic Tone Reimagined

Telefunken drew inspiration from iconic vintage German mics to craft the TF17's full-bodied tone. Its large diaphragm condenser capsule emulates the revered sound of early Neumann and Telefunken models. Paired with premium FET circuitry, the capsule produces a rich low end, articulate midrange and smooth highs with excellent transient response—perfect for capturing instruments and voices with depth and clarity. With this mic, you can achieve a classic German sound without the cost or hassle of a vintage model.

Premium Components for Premium Tone

Telefunken hand-selected each component in the TF17 to deliver maximum tone. At its heart lies a center-terminated capsule modeled after the legendary Neumann K47. Premium FET circuitry and through-hole components provide a harmonically rich signal path. And an OEP Carnhill output transformer gives the mic a smooth frequency response with minimal distortion. From the capsule to the transformer, the TF17's parts work together to produce recordings as timeless as your music.
