The BMM-251 Microphone (Vacuum Tube Condenser)

The Telefunken ELA M 251 has been used in chart breaking hits for more than 50 years.  The newer recreation by Telefunken costs in excess of $9000.

About the BMM-251 Microphone

BMM-251 is a recreation using Matt McGlynn’s V251 circuit upgrade kit and RK12 capsule.  We embodied this into an Apex 460 tube mic body and modified the power supply unit for the correct voltage.

The RK12 capsule is a near perfect match to AKG’s CK12 capsule used in the ELA M 251.  The tube is also upgraded in this kit to a EHX 12AY7.

We are very pleased with the pristine sound this microphone now captures and will surely contribute to an exceptional experience by artists.
