BeyerDynamic Opus 87 : theaudioandvideoguy's user review
I have used and seen the Beyer Dynamic Opus 87 on several occasions. Use it on the toms and snares only. I think that it really performs better on the snare for some reason. It just really gives the snare that pop and snap that I love. There have been many bands locally that I have worked with and recorded and used the Beyer Dynamic Opus 87 on and it has done more than what I expected it to do. I really don’t have anything bad to say about this drum mic.
The best thing about it is how clear it will give your recording of the drum. Some drum mics just sound flat out horrible and I don’t suggest trying to purchase a drum mic on a budget. You will get what you pay for and you will need to invest in some Opus 87 mics right away if you want to record some great drums. Like I said it does the snare drum some serious justice with its clarity when recording. The value you get with the Opus 87 from Beyer Dynamic is unreal for the price, not saying that the price is really cheap because compared to a lot of low end drum mics the Opus 87 might seem like it cost a lot. But for the quality you are getting you will over look the price tag forever. After using for a short while you will have long passed the price of the mic. I am very happy that I chose to use the Opus 87 by Beyer Dynamic and continue to use it depending on which studio that I am in . I have many drum mics and this one is one of the better ones by far. You just don’t know how good this mic is until you get it. Buy it.
