Another microphone from the "workhorse stable", the beyerdynamic M 201 TG preserves its place in history through sheer performance and reliability and we are proud that it has come to feature here with the classics.  A truly sensitive dynamic microphone with a range of applications spanning instruments to vocals, being particularly effective when the microphone has to be placed at a distance from the sound source.  It incorporates a "hum-buck" coil that rejects mains borne interference introduced when using the microphone close to video monitors or other mains powered devices.


  • Universal microphone for instrument miking
  • Integrated hum-buck coil
  • Small dimensions for unobtrusive positioning
  • Rugged construction
  • Supplied with microphone clamp and storage bag

if you do your homework on this mic, review the polar pattern information as well as the frequency specs, determine it is the right tool for the task, you will be very satisfied with the microphone. The specifications released by Beyerdynamic are accurate. This is a no non-sense tool for capturing sound.

I have found it takes modest EQ adjustments well (i do not generally make wide EQ adjustments, so I can't vouch for that type of performance), it works well for vocals if you are NOT seeking a high frequency bump as this mic has a modest EQ mound in the high frequency range, it is a beautiful replacement for other mics people often reach for when trying to capture sound from instruments such as an Audix i5 or Shure SM57.

Of course this mic costs more than a lot of normal choices for a dynamic instrument mic, but I humbly believe the M201TG is good value in that it is an excellent tool.

For my purposes, I have found the M201TG is a great microphone to substitute out a condenser mic of similar voicing if/ when I need less sensitivity to remote sound sources. For example, if I am trying to record a voice over piece with an actor and there is extraneous noise I can't control, replacing my condenser mic with the M201TG is a problem solver in this sort of situation.

The size and format of this mic is well designed for placing around instruments. It is generally a bit larger in diameter than my small diaphragm condensers, but it is a slightly better profile than many of my other dynamic mics. Of course mics like an Audio-Technica ATM230 are designed better for a very specific task, but the M201tg will work well in perhaps a larger variety of situations. But of course we all make our tools work for our tasks, just some seem to fit the bill better.

Best endorsement for the M201TG? I plan to buy more and use other microphones less.
