Rundfunk- und Fernmelde-Technik

RFT stands for Rundfunk- und Fernmelde- Technik, it is a German company association, which produces electronic and radio communication equipment. It was founded in 1946. Its history and structure are pretty much confusing. It consisted of measuring and experimental laboratories, professional and consumer appliances manufacturers and distribution network. The RFT logo can be seen on TVs, cassette players,  stationary and mobile radio receivers, calculators, speakers and, naturally, on microphones.

    nr: 61167

    A renowned dynamic microphone made in Germany. A no longer existing company, which used to be a subsidiary of the German R-F-T corporation. The microphone is still used today in studios and recommended due to its interesting sound performance and solid design. A Big Touchel receptacle. Fixing on a stand may be a problem because of its untypical form factor.

    A plastic dynamic microphone bought on 3 June 1986 - we got it in pristine condition. We know because we have the warranty card. The cable with a classic 3-pin DIN connector.

    A plastic dynamic microphone by RFT. Looks very similar to RFT 2413M. The only difference is the head colour – the 2412 has a silver one. Except for this detail, the 2412 does not have a permanently attached cable – the plugs into a 3-pin DIN receptacle.
