At Musikmesse 2013 Telefunken presented a new dynamic cardioid microphone – M82. This microphone is created to provide higher quality and professional features. M82 is a robust microphone, hand-assembled with a 35mm diaphragm who is perfect for low frequency capabilities. Perfect for recording live drums.
Though it was designed with the kick drum as a primary application, the two EQ switches make the M82 equally suited for a multitude of sources such as vocals, percussion, broadcast voice, guitar and bass amplifiers, organ, and brass instruments.
On kick drum, the M82 is both fat and punchy. When placed just inside the hole of the resonant head, the M82’s tailored frequency response captures both the beater attack and shell resonance without the need for multiple microphones.
Construction wise, the M82 borrows heavily from the U47 body style by employing a headgrille of similar architecture. Finished in a durable smooth black finish on the headgrille and body, the M82 was rigorously tested to ensure it could handle the rugged role of a kick drum microphone for both studio and live environments.
The TELEFUNKEN Elektroakustik M82 is delivered with a stand mount adapter and protective zipper case. An optional elastic suspension mount is available.
