Happy #MicMonday! The M81-SH is the low profile version of the M81 Universal Dynamic, and is perfect for tight miking where a smaller footprint is necessary. The M81-SH is sold individually and is also a part of our popular DD and DC drum mic packs. #telefunken#telefunkenmics#M81SH#M81
#MicMonday. Here is a little unknown mic history. The #Sennheiser#MD46 handheld mic has become the standard handheld #microphone for #liveTV#broadcast. It was developed by sennheiser per the request of the late and very great Bob Dixon. He wanted a dynamic mic that sounded like a #Shure#Beta87 AND with a longer handgrip so broadcasters could use a #MicFlag and still have enough handle so the connectors were not being used to hold the #mic. He went to shure but they were not interested so sennheiser did the job. This mic was first used for the olympics in the early 2000 and has since been used on almost every major broadcast since.
Happy #MicMonday !! Here is the mic setup in front of the woodwind & brass sections while recording the Peninsula Youth Orchestra a couple weeks back 🎺🎷A @neumann.berlin TLM49 is seen in the foreground handling low brass duties. The mics seen here are mixed lower in volume when compared to the center/front mics near the conductor. They capture added detail and articulation while the mics at the front of the stage capture overall balance, fullness and ambience. Great tones this time around! ✨
#micmonday beyerdynamic m200 which is supposedly an “early version” of the m160 but I don’t believe that’s true as they are somewhat different in response even though they are similar in design. Every m200 I’ve ever seen only has the German tuchel connector as well with no “western” counterpart so you need an adaptor cable to use them. Side by side, I do prefer the m200 over the m160(the 160 is still a killer mic too). I first heard this mic at a friend’s studio here in Phoenix and loved it on guitar amps instantly. It has the low mid bump the 160 doesn’t have and is a tad darker. I’m not sure how long they were in production or how long they have been out of production. Mine has paperwork dating it to 1991 and it’s in German but if anyone knows anything else about this mic’s history, I’d love to know! #beyerdynamic
#micmonday@mattaldawood and I shot out a handful of mics on “kick in” yesterday and this has been my go to for a while now. Sadly, the beyerdynamic m380 has been discontinued and will set you back quite a bit IF you can find one on the used market. The one I have is a TG model or “tour grade” version that’s been on “permanent loan” to me. It’s supposed to be the exact same as the older n/c brass models but more rugged for stage use. A bit of an oddity as it’s a bidirectional dynamic mic that isn’t a ribbon. Another interesting thing is this mic’s output is so hot that you just run it into a line amp as opposed to a mic pre otherwise it will overload(distort). I usually just feed it directly into an 1176 or if I’m lazy, I’ll in-line attenuate it 20-30dB. Combine this with a subkick and a pencil on the beater side and ye be solid!
