Legendary sound for vocals, bass drum and studio!
Some products are born classics and the M 88 has to take centre-stage for being far ahead of its time when it was first introduced in the 1960`s. Incorporating a new low-mass diaphragm element, the M 88 TG has earned its place in history in the Kick Drum. Sound engineers have found that the lightning-fast transient response of the microphone reproduces the complex sound patterns of this instrument resulting in the tight `thump` without the need for complex signal processing.
This characteristic works equally well on other instruments especially where intricate low frequencies and their harmonics need to be captured. The M 88 TG is one of the most frequently specified microphones by sound engineers worldwide and heralded a beyerdynamic contemporary classic as this microphone becomes renown for capturing emotive audio signals.

- A terrific live performance vocal mic Review by borneo.bob172
Value Quality Features
It has a neodymium magnet and a super sensitive diaphagm that gives it phenomenal frequency response.
I really like the way this mic sounds and how it picks up the tiniest details.
If you use an SM-58 and step up to this you will be blown away at the difference.
You really get what you pay for with Beyer, no question. (Posted on 6/8/2012)
