Telefunken Elektroakustik DD4 Drum Microphone Set

Dynamic drum mic kit with 1x M82 kick drum mic, 1x M80-SH snare drum mic, 2x M81-SH tom mics, 4x mic cables, rim-attachment mic clips, and flight case
MFR# DD4

Product Description

Telefunken Elektroakustik has combined the three unique voices of its TEC Award winning Dynamic Series microphone line, and packaged them as the DD4 and DD5 Drum Microphone Sets for drum recording and live performance applications. Each microphone set consists of the M82 handling kick drum duties, the M80-SHB on snare, and the M81-SH for toms. The DD4 and DD5 ship in the heavy-duty hard shell FC80 flight case and include multiple drum mounts (M782, M784 and M785) and a SGMC-5R five-meter XLR cable with a right angle female connector for each microphone in the set.

M80-SHB
Telefunken Elektroakustik created the M80-SHB for use on snare drum and vocal applications where a lower profile microphone with right angle XLR cable is needed. The M80-SHB is the same exact circuit as the M80 Standard, housed in a shorter microphone body with a built-on stand mount. The wide frequency response and higher SPL capabilities of the M80-SHB offer the user a superior alternative to the midrange-laden character of many of the industry's standard dynamic microphones. A tight cardioid polar pattern and a frequency response boasting a subtle rise in the high end result in a microphone that is equally suitable for snare drum, vocals or instruments on both the stage and the studio. The M80-SHB is finished on both the headgrille and body with a durable, textured black powder coat.

M81-SH
The M81-SH was designed with the goal of developing a mic that would not only complement the M80-SH, but also stand out in a universe filled with dynamic microphone options. Building off many of the strengths of the M80, the Telefunken M81-SH retains the same minimal proximity effect, superior feedback rejection, and an articulate mid-range. However, with the M81-SH, the top end is pulled back a bit, yielding a flatter overall frequency response. This combination results in a microphone with a wealth of body and clarity, making it a great tool for fattening up toms, percussion and horns, or taming brighter vocals or thinner sounding sources. The M81-SH is identical to the M81 in circuit, but housed in a shorter microphone body with a built-on stand mount, and finished in a durable, textured dark gray powder coat on both the headgrille and body.

M82 Dynamic
The Telefunken Elektroakustik M82 is a robust large diaphragm end-address dynamic microphone that has been designed for kick drum and vocal broadcast applications. Hand-assembled in CT, USA, the M82 features two independently functioning EQ switches: KICK EQ and HIGH BOOST, which in turn offer four unique voices. The M82's KICK EQ switch engages a passive filter that reduces some of the lower mid-range frequencies (centered around 350Hz) commonly cut when processing a kick drum. The HIGH BOOST switch tilts the upper mid-range and high frequencies (starting around 2kHz with a 6dB boost by 10kHz) to allow for extra articulation. In the flat setting (both switches off), the M82 is equally suited for vocals, guitar amps, and brass.

DD4 Drum Microphone Set includes:

  • 1x M82 with M782 mount
  • 1x M80-SHB with M784 (metal) and M785 (plastic) mount
  • 2x M81-SH with M784 (metal) and M785 (plastic) mount
  • 4x SGMC-5R five-meter XLR with right angle female connector
  • 1x FC80 Hard Shell Flight Case

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.

You guys have excellent customer service and I am excited about the next upgrade I complete on my fifth recording facility. I've been in the studio business for forty plus years. The salesman I worked with at Vintage King was the best of the best. You all rock!

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.
Thomas W.
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.
