Beyerdynamic TG-D71C Boundary Microphone

The Beyerdynamic TG-D71C Boundary Microphone is primarily used for miking bass drums while placing it simply without any additional mounting material into the bass drum. The non-slip rubber bottom makes sure that the microphone cannot shift by itself.

In addition to this the Beyerdynamic TG-D71C can also be used for other low frequency instruments such as cajon, grand piano or upright piano whereas the compact design and the half-cardioid polar pattern ensure easy positioning of the microphone. Due to its high impulse fidelity, a low attack time and a maximum sound pressure level of 148 dB, the Beyerdynamic TG-D71C is suitable for miking percussion instruments.

The rugged housing in a slim, compact design protects the microphone against damages in the rough daily use on stage. For a permanent installation on a surface there are two mounting holes at the bottom of the microphone. The microphone is provided with an integrated pre-amp and can be powered on microphone inputs supplying 11 to 52 V phantom power. A red illuminating status LED displays the applied phantom power and in this way the operating status of the microphone.

What We Think

Well the non-slip pad on the bottom of the mic actually works. Definitely don't have to worry about this mic sliding around in your kick drum. That would not be a good thing. I'm pretty sure mic placement matters. ;)

Overall, I am impressed with this mic. There is a natural deep bottom end to it, a touch of a bloom in the low mids, and a clear and detailed upper mid and top end - that is ever so slightly smooth. You hear this mic and know (without any doubt) that this mic belongs inside a kick drum. You know that that is its purpose. It gives you confidence in the mic. Furthermore, it has great rejection (being half-cardioid). That is something I've always wanted in a boundary mic. Boundary mics are cool, but there is always too much bleed. Here, the TG-D71C seems to have that better under control - so the bleed is manageable, even usable. Take all that, and couple it with the 148dB SPL handling, and you have an amazing solution for kick drum - live or in the studio. Of course you can always pair it with an M88TG on the outside, and you're kinda just set on kick for the rest of time (if that is even a thing).
