[NAMM] Telefunken M81
Telefunken Elektroakustik introduces the new M81 universal dynamic cardioid microphone at Winter NAMM 2012.
The new M81 is said to have a more linear frequency response than the company's M80, resulting in a microphone with "distinct clarity but with a different depth and body to the tone of the microphone, and less of the M80's characteristic response," according to the company.
As an alternative to the Telefunken M80, the new M81 is a tool that is a bit less specialized, giving the microphone more universal application ability.
The Telefunken Elektroakustik M81's frequency response attenuates the high end, making the mic suited for electric guitars, percussion instruments, rack and floor toms, as well as horns, especially the trumpet. It is also suited for vocals that do not benefit from the response of the M80.
Finished in the same gray and "tri-chrome" styling as the R-F-T AR-51, the M81 is distinguishable from the black M80. Designed with the AR-51 in mind, the M81's overall response is complementary to the AR-51 when recording electric guitars. The Telefunken M81 is designed to add to the new standard for live performance microphones as the second offering in the company's dynamic range lineup.
Pricing & Availability:
Designed for stage and studio use, the M81 comes with a mic clip and leather carrying bag for $249.
