The M80 is a versatile microphone that has become a staple in both live sound reinforcement and studio recording over the last decade. Known for its wide frequency response, condenser-like performance, and high SPL (Sound Pressure Level) capabilities, the M80 is a reliable choice for various sound sources including: vocals, drums, and various instruments in different sound reinforcement and recording scenarios.
Wide Frequency Response: The M80 is designed to capture the full range of any sound source with its wide frequency response. This makes it suitable for a variety of applications, including lead vocals and snare drums.
Condenser-Like Performance: The microphone exhibits condenser-like high-frequency extension, allowing it to cut through dense mixes and provide detailed sound reproduction. This characteristic makes it versatile for both studio and stage use.
High SPL Handling: The M80 is capable of handling high Sound Pressure Levels, making it well-suited for capturing loud sources without distortion. This feature is particularly advantageous for miking high-energy instruments like snare drums.
Custom-Wound Impedance Matching Transformer: The microphone features a custom-wound impedance matching transformer. This transformer contributes to the M80's unmatched performance and ensures optimal signal transfer.
Supercardioid Polar Pattern: The supercardioid polar pattern provides excellent feedback rejection, making the M80 suitable for live sound environments where minimizing feedback is crucial.
Custom Shop Options: The M80 is available in multiple colors and finishes through the Custom Shop, allowing users to personalize the microphone's aesthetics.
Rugged Build Quality: Hand-assembled in the USA, the M80 is constructed with a focus on durability to withstand the rigors of live performances and frequent use on the road.
