A complete product range of more than 25 different microphones for live performance, the Touring Gear Series showcases a new uniform and elegant design, top specifications, and a clear, easy to understand classification system.
"The new TG microphone series is the next step in our fireworks of innovation of the past years," says Wolfgang Luckhardt, Managing Director of beyerdynamic. "beyerdynamic has always been known as a pioneer in the development of microphones. But we had come to the point where we needed to redevelop and restructure our product portfolio in this area, as well. From a global perspective, our product range is immense. Today's users do not always know immediately which product is the right one for them. Thus, a self-explanatory, logical product structure was the starting point of our considerations. But beyond that, we have made our Sound Channelling Technology a true unique selling proposition. Sound Channelling Technology is responsible for that special "beyerdynamic sound" – as clear and natural as in real life. It makes us unique, and our customers appreciate that. This comprehensive microphone launch is a new milestone in the audio industry."
Mario Gebhardt, Audio Products Development Manager: "It is indeed a highlight when decades of experience in microphone engineering are combined with the ideas of young engineers and the requests coming from musicians and audio technicians and the result is not just a single microphone, but a whole series. Our objective was to get rid of unproductive relics, but to keep and refine proven strengths. At the same time, we have made space for new ideas and implemented them.
One such result is Sound Channelling Technology, which lets us specifically work on acoustic design in order to achieve optimal sound, exceeding the standard parameters of a microphone system. When combined with outstanding design, excellent handling, and extreme sturdiness, the result is a thoroughly consistent live microphone series."
Touring Gear – The Four Categories:
Sound Channelling Technology:
To achieve that unique, natural beyerdynamic sound, beyerdynamic has been developing and refining its Sound Channelling Technology for decades. The beyerdynamic acoustic experts have created acoustic labyrinths with special geometries that provide optimized sound channelling. They influence the sound and model the polar pattern by using precisely tuned delay lines and attenuation pads. Whether with additional elements, special materials or a unique design: every beyerdynamic microphone has its own Sound Channelling Technology to ensure optimal control of the sound waves resulting in optimum sound.
Pricing and Availability:
The Touring Gear microphone series will be available from the middle of April through qualified specialty retailers.
