Reggae Mic


TELEFUNKEN Elektroakustik has introduced the M81 Reggae version of its universal dynamic cardioid microphone. The M81 Reggae, featuring a 3-color paint finish and a Lion of Judah graphic is a tribute to the internationally known reggae artist Toots Hibberts of Toots & The Maytals. Frederick "Toots" Hibbert is widely recognized as the man who coined the word "Reggae."
TELEFUNKEN tells us that, in comparison to the M80, the M81 retains the same minimal proximity effect, superior feedback rejection, and articulate mid-range, however, the top end is pulled back a bit, yielding a flatter overall frequency response, making it ideal for lighter sounding voices, as well as electric guitar, percussion and rack toms.
TELEFUNKEN says that, over the past few years the performance of M80 has been likened to that of a condenser microphone and has become a staple for vocal and snare drum applications, especially in the world of touring and live performance. As an alternative to the extended top end capabilities of the TELEFUNKEN M80, the M81 is a tool that is a bit less specialized, giving the microphone more universal application ability.
Pricing and Availability:
The package, including the microphone, mic clip and leather carrying bag, sells for $349. More information:
