TELEFUNKEN Announces M81 Reggae Microphone
September 15, 2012 by David Weiss
We all want a mic we can really warm up to – this has got to qualify.
The M81 package, including the microphone, mic clip and leather carrying bag, will sell for $349 upon its availability in late October. Here’s more about TELEFUNKEN’s island-inspired mic:
“In comparison to the M80, the TELEFUNKEN M81 retains the same minimal proximity effect, superior feedback rejection, and articulate mid-range, however, the top end is pulled back a bit, yielding a flatter overall frequency response, making it ideal for lighter sounding voices, as well as electric guitar, percussion and rack toms.
Over the past few years the performance of TELEFUNKEN’s M80 has been likened to that of a condenser microphone and has become a staple for vocal and snare drum applications, especially in the world of touring and live performance. As an alternative to the extended top end capabilities of the TELEFUNKEN M80, the M81 is a tool that is a bit less specialized, giving the microphone more universal application ability.
Designed for stage and studio use, the M81 offers exceptional performance in a rugged package capable of withstanding the rigors of the road.”
