Large-diaphragm dynamic microphone ideal for instruments and on-air broadcasting.
The Beyerdynamic M 99 is a studio quality dynamic moving coil microphone. The tailored frequency response suits many applications from instrument miking to on-air broadcasting. The Beyerdynamic TG-X technology used in the M 99 features a strong neodymium magnet system and a mass reduced special Mylar diaphragm to give the microphone a powerful reproduction with excellent transient characteristics. The frequency response is extremely linear and guarantees audio quality which has, until now, only been achieved by using high quality condenser microphones. The frequency select switch at the base of the microphone allows three settings of equalization, linear and two optimized settings for vocals and instrument miking. A second switch is for presence accentuation. This allows further adjustment for close miking techniques or kick drum miking. The hypercardioid polar pattern helps to eliminate feedback in live applications and allows a good separation between different instruments. The microphone can operate at very high sound pressure levels without loss of sound quality and virtually no distortion. The M 99's die cast casing is made of aircraft grade aluminum and finished with an attractive metallic varnish. Applications include vocals, radio announcers, instruments, and kick drum.
