Reverb Estimated Used Price Range

  • $1,045$1,335

The Telefunken AR-51 is a large diaphragm tube condenser microphone with 9 selectable polar patterns on the power supply. It was introduced soon after the M-16 MKII was discontinued.

The AR-51's amplifier is very similar to the C12 and ELA M 251, with an ECC81 replacing the GE 6072A. As of October 2012, the capsule is a dual diaphragm, edge-terminated capsule sourced from overseas. The very first issues of this microphone used a center terminated KK67-style capsule, also from overseas.
