Beyerdynamic M 160 Dynamic microphone
Beyerdynamic M 160 instrument microphone, black, dynamic, supercardioid, XLR 3-pin, (for hi-hat, snare, piano, saxophone, stringed instrument)
Beyerdynamic is one of the few manufacturers in the world that still build ribbon microphones. The classic among them is the dynamic double ribbon microphone M 160.
The excellent transmission quality of the M 160 and its hypercardioid characteristics with noise cancellation of 25 dB at 110 °, which effectively suppresses lateral sound reflections and disturbing extraneous noise, make the M 160 an ideal microphone where the highest demands are placed on recording or transmission technology. It is recommended for the acceptance of string instruments such as violin, viola and cello as well as for the acceptance of piano and grand piano and for drums for hi-hats and toms. Ideal for saxophone.
The black chrome-plated surface of the M 160 and its extremely small dimensions enable it to be used both on television and in film studios, where avoidance of reflections and the inconspicuousness of the microphone are important.
