beyerdynamic M 88 TG Hypercardioid Dynamic Microphone

Dynamic directional hypercardioid microphone for vocals and instruments
MFR# 437115

Product Description

The beyerdynamic M 88 is a dynamic moving coil microphone with a hypercardioid polar pattern which is more tightly directional than that of any other mic in its class. Its frequency independent pickup pattern reduces feedback and off-axis coloration to an absolute minimum.  The M 88s efficient moving coil design delivers high output over a wide range of working distances.  Its wide frequency response and fast transient response enhance the 'presence' and articulation of voices or instruments, while accurately reproducing bass frequencies.  The M 88s natural, well-balanced sound can only be described as "elegant", yet its rugged design virtually eliminates non-linear distortion at extreme SPLs.  The integral humbucking coil reduces interference from stray magnetic fields by as much as 20 dB.

The M 88 offers both wide frequency response and rugged construction, an ideal combination for sound effects (Foley studio) and other EFP applications.  In addition it is an excellent broadcast announcer's mic.  Recording studio applications of the M 88 include vocals, bass drum, bass guitar, woodwinds and upright bass.  It gives outstanding results in live vocal reinforcement, as a paging mic and for teleconferencing applications.  The TourGroup version (M 88 TG) has a reinforced basket to withstand rough handling when being used for more demanding applications and a black mesh screen.

A hypercardioid, dynamic microphone functions reliably within any mic locker. However, the M 88 TG wields a wide capability in capturing the mid-low, and low-end frequency response. Above that, its mean frequency response in mids, and mid-highs deepens its usefulness. I find myself reaching for this mic for so many applications- be it voice, kick-out, vehicle, or firearm. The M88 has defined accountability in my tracking plans for years now, and I can't imagine what I would do with out it.

Hi everyone! The Beyer 88TG is a FABULOUS all-purpose microphone! It is the "dream dynamicmic", capable of capturing and reproducing everything with fidelity, sensitive and solid . His job requires some knowledge , he is also sensitive to "pop" but when you know your job it is not a problem! A microphone to have in its stock for any sound engineer who respects himself!

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.
Phil T.
The speed of delivery exceeded my expectations! I was VERY pleased that my shipment arrived in time for a scheduled vocal tracking session. The packing insured that my order arrived safely. And the sales staff responded quickly to questions regarding the product.

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.
Michael D.
From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.

I am a new customer of yours. You guys provided me the absolute best deals in ordering all the equipment to power my brand new recording studio. Your customer service is amazing and i will always deal with you from here on out.
