The Beyer Dynamic M260 is a ribbon microphone designed for use in the recording studio. As with all ribbon mic, I wouldn't use this outside of the studio, but as far as ribbon microphones go, the M260 is as sturdy as any. It has a hyper cardioid polar pattern.
I've been using the Beyer Dynamic M260 ribbon mic for about a year. I like the M260 beacuse it is a great sounding ribbon mic that isn't as fragile or expensive and some of the other ribbon mics out there. The sound quality of the M260 is full and warm and is great for a number of different things. The main applications I use the M260 for is percussion and electric and acoustic guitars. I have also used it on drums, but I would only recommend it for lighter drums or snare drum, as it can only take so much punch. This is a great choice for an all around ribbon microphone and will work in a number of different applications. The price is really a bargain, and even though it isn't as great as a Royer or RCA, it will cost a fraction of the price. The price makes it a great option for professionals and amateurs alike. I love having the M260 around because I find it presents itself quite handy to me a lot of the time. The low price tag means that I don't worry about it as much as I would some of the more expensive ribbon mics out there, and it is also a lot sturdier than a lot of ribbon mics out there. The sturdy casing also makes me worry less about this ribbon mic. Overall, the Beyer Dyanmic M260 is one of my favorite ribbon mics out there because it has a great sound and is set at a truly great price.
Used for two months
It gives the sound of velvet.
It looks great on a guitar amp (it perfectly rounded disto a somewhat aggressive) clean or distortion, a Rhodes or a Würlizer. On a voice, we must give the vocal cords, because the micro breath a lot. So to avoid a piece of quiet and intimate.
This microphone is a great "secret weapon" to give a pretty rollerblading sound.
It may take a little distance between the source and the microphone. A little but not too much, but as Ragit IMMEDIATE, quickly found the right place. In the same Manir is INTERESTED cushion the rear of the microphone to give more or less air. Pop filter for voice indispensable. It's a reliable micro trs typ can not be mistaken, a will or will not, IMMEDIATE.
A ribbon and a trs trs studio. On sax and clarinet and hips gnral, pure velvet. On battery, the opposite of Km 84 and 184, trs is soft, if you use a prfre that does not break too. On guitar amps, the amp adpend biensr it attnue saturations mdium too, easy on the jazz guitar Jim Hall fawn. On the right hand of the accordion, the instrument is more powerful the more he loves, a natural sound trs. The votes, trs sensual, can be trs acoustic stuff and well placed between the voice of acoustic guitars, percussion, accordion, strings. Whisperers and powerful singers, more or less prs microphone, it works (pop filter!). It is a microphone that is back in the studio because he is strong enough on the one hand, tape and trs typ plutt easy to use.
