AlanForPresident's review"had a great time with it"

Beyerdynamic M 69 N
My school band had this mic for years and I didn’t even pay it any attention untill one day I wanted to record some brass at home with some friends and my brother. So I actually paid attention to what mic we where using for our concert band at school many years ago. So after seeing this mic, we saved up our money and managed to purchase one of these in around the fall of 2006 we where able to have enough money to get a used one, but it took us a while to find someone who was actually selling one of them. Finally we got on an eBay auction for about half of the price that it cost brand new because the seller had scrapped it up and dropped it a few times and he even shipped it for free from Europe . When it arrived it wasn’t the prettiest mic because of the abuse that he gave it but after playing some trumpet on it I was amazed on how good it sounded and more amazed that we actually purchased the same mic that our school was using for concert band. I couldn’t believe we actually had the same mic sitting in our basement and using it for our own semi jazz music recordings.


The mic proved a very crystal clear sound and very accurate, we didn’t even touch any of the eq controls because we wanted the most natural sounding mic that we could possible have. At the time I thought his was the best mic I would every have for brass, well that was many years ago, and since then I have moved on to many other mics that sound way better. But at the time, the Beyer Dynamic M69N was perfect for us and I have no regrets using it.

Beyerdynamic M 69 N
It is a dynamic cardioid microphone, quite versatile; I used to snare, electric guitar, and voice.
I bought € 25 on a flea market to someone who did not really know what he was selling and that is not being used when we know what it costs ...: D
The one I bought has a DIN connector lock 3 points. I have so far not had the courage to change the cable, I have a jack on the other side or I put a XLR adapter, and I need a lot of gain for a spectrum of a proper amplitude I do not know if it plays, but in any case it is a better model that requires consistent source.
It has a small ring at the bottom two positions, normal, and low-cut, highly effective, I do not know the exact characteristics otherwise. It vaguely resembles that of a SM57.


I use it for 6 months.

What I like least: this level a bit feeble, but when you tap on a snare drum, or you push the amp, no problem for a spoken voice is a bit tight however.
It should really place the front of the amp for example, I find that the directivity is quite pronounced compared to other microphones of this type, it changes completely everything, but when all has honed is nickel.
What I love most: the price at which I acquired (I had also seen a dear none cash converters). the relative neutrality, good transcription, not too aggressive (perhaps not enough some would say).
I have tried many models before, it sure is not a MD421, but it is worth a SM57 in another style.
I can only say that the price / quality ratio was good ...
Yes, of course I would do this choice, it is still far more able to expand his palette and propose alternatives.

EDIT 2406 2010:

This mic is much better IMHO than 57, more accurate, less "harsh" in the treble. It is hyper cardio I think. He actually missed perhaps a potato coat for a snare, and finally it is still very good, but when you are fussy, preferring a M201 (or static upscale and work ...). Anyway, we found not too expensive and well worth it, especially on a guitar amp (well I use it mainly for; that, after, you have to try everything). That this is, trust faisez German

Dynamic microphone specially fate registration particulirement brass and trumpet.


I for 1 year. I bought used at 120 euros "Microphone" Pigalle. The seller advised me to record a trumpet in a jazz band. I do not t with a ratio of top quality prices. Pieces on "funk" or bebop sound with significant peaks (the intro to Night in Tunisia for those who know), the Beyer cash without flinching and without exhausting what happened to me not empty when we know the PCHE a trumpet. Conversely, when there is Submitted trumpeter plays ballads "The Chet Baker", then all means dtails. The sound is reproduced trs Fidler and I am not obliged to compensate any dealer dfaillance the microphone EQ or compression.
In short, great stuff. I recommend it but I really do not know if we find in France.
However, pluttdcevant a sax or beyer my opinion is a much infrieur ElectroVoice RE20 home.

UPDATE (March 2005):
I confirm, great stuff for a trumpet. Now I plug in a lamp prampli Goldmike SPL and sound is clear without being equilibrated same aggressive attacks on free trumpeter. I have absolutely no need to correct the EQ and the sound is warm and Submitted. Trs a really good choice and I think the amp ajot a lamp worth even if I struggled to find a good beginners level of
