The Beyerdynamic M88 is one of the most versatile microphones ever – it sounds great for mic’ing everything from drums to vocals and is a popular choice for bass guitar. The M88 is a dynamic, moving coil microphone and stands out due to its very extensive frequency range, which ensures all sound is recorded right down to the smallest detail. This microphone also minimises the risk of feedback in all types of PA systems.

The Beyerdynamic M88 is one of the most versatile microphones ever – it sounds great for mic’ing everything from drums to vocals and is a popular choice for bass guitar.

The M 88 TG is a dynamic, moving coil microphone and stands out due to its very extensive frequency range, which ensures all sound is recorded right down to the smallest detail. This microphone also minimises the risk of feedback in all types of PA systems. The directional response (hypercardioid polar pattern) in the M 88 is almost as perfect as it is theoretically possible. A special attachment in the microphone system ensures structure-borne sound is eliminated. A compensation coil reduces interference from external magnetic fields by more than 20 dB.

Incorporating a new low-mass diaphragm element, the M 88 TG has earned its place in history in the kick drum (for this application, the use of an external popshield like PS 88 or WS 59 is strongly recommended). Sound engineers have found that the lightning-fast transient response of the microphone reproduces the complex sound patterns of this instrument resulting in the tight `thump` without the need for complex signal processing.

This characteristic works equally well on other instruments especially where intricate low frequencies and their harmonics need to be captured. The M 88 TG is one of the most frequently specified microphones by sound engineers worldwide and heralded a beyerdynamic contemporary classic as this microphone becomes renown for capturing emotive audio signals.
