Long regarded as one of the nicest kick drum mics available, this hypercardioid dynamic microphone is one flexible device. Rich for percussion and horns the ‘M88’ is also one of the smoothest vocal microphones going around. This ‘TG’ version has a more rugged grille than its predecessor. Still great on kick drums.
And the blurb from Beyer:
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 (for this application, the use of an external popshield like PS 88 or WS 59 is strongly recommended).
