Beyerdynamic M 88 TG by MRHANDSBAND
I recently purchased the Beyerdynamic M88TG, and boy oh boy am I impressed! I was initially just looking for a great bass drum mic, and to be clear, this mic blows any other dynamic out of the water for that application, outclassing just about every other traditional kick drum mic. The M88tg has the upper range clarity of a large diaphragm condenser, but man is it smooth and natural sounding. Put this mic in front of any tuned kick drum, and you’ve got a beautiful recording! But that’s just the tip of the iceberg, because The M88TG is unbelievably handy for a very wide range of applications! The M88 is has a very open and natural sound. I have had unbelievably good results micing electric guitar cabnets, as well as bass cabinets, and horns! Much like the Shure Sm7, and the EV RE20, the M88TG was originally intended to be used as a vocal mic. Obviously a vocal mic is an extremely personal thing, though for certain voices this mic really can shine! Pair this mic with a preamp that has a good amount of headroom, and you will be very pleased with the possibilities! At around 300 dollars, the beyerdynamic M88TG is a great workhorse for project studio, as well as high end establishments.
