The Beyerdynamic M 201 TG is a hypercardioid dynamic microphone with a very accurate natural sound to it. This microphone is affordable and it will last you a long time because it is built to last. It comes with a small pouch to carry it in. The Beyerdynamic M 201 TG is a great microphone for a long list of different instruments. Generally this microphone is used for recording purposes but it can also be used in a live situation if you want it to be. We have used this microphone for snare, toms, and as an amp microphone. It will really capture the true tone of the instrument with little to no EQ needed. You can use this microphone to get it to your hard to reach areas that you need to record. It is small and can fit in tight spaces, you can also use this microphone as a vocal microphone but if you do keep in mind that the voice you are recording needs to be a full sounding voice. More for a male tone voice, because when we used it with a female vocalist it sounded really thin and like a cheap microphone.


We have used this microphone for around 2 years, it sounds great for some of the Pearl Kits that we used it on and for the snare it brought out that rock “wetness” of the snare we where looking for at the time. When it comes to versatile microphones there are a bunch of them out on the market including the SM57, but the Beyerdynamic M 201 TG will make the SM 57 sound horrible in sound test. We are happy with our purchase of the M 201 and hope that it will continue to last us a long time like it has already. The sound quality is amazing and all for an affordable price.
