Unique Versatility

The TF-5 offers the hallmark clarity and airiness of other small diaphragm microphones and adds to this a warmth that is often lacking in mics of this type, making it uniquely versatile. The TF-5 performs brilliantly in a stereo pair for recording everything from drum and pianos to entire orchestras, or on its own for capturing the nuances of acoustic instruments or percussion.
