Beyerdynamic M130 Ribbon Microphone

The Beyerdynamic M130 Ribbon Microphone is a double ribbon dynamic microphone designed for use in live and studio recording applications. Its unique double ribbon element has superb transient response, creating a highly detailed sound with unequalled accuracy and transparency.

The Beyerdynamic M130 Ribbon Microphone is the legendary microphone from Beyerdynamic. The bidirectional figure eight polar pattern effectively suppresses unwanted interference from the sides. The Beyerdynamic M130's balanced, uncoloured sound handles a wide variety of applications. In conjunction with the hypercardioid M160, the Beyerdynamic M130 is ideal for creating an authentic stereo image through the use of the MS- (Mid-Side) technique.

The Beyerdynamic M130 microphone gives excellent results when the Mid-Side technique is used to record or broadcast a true stereo image. Its rugged Design handles the demands of remote recording/broadcast sessions as easily as those of the studio. Alone, the Beyerdynamic M130 Microphone allows the recording of background audience noise and concert hall 'ambience' without unwanted resonances. In the recording studio it is effective with backing vocal groups, percussion and mounted toms. The Beyerdynamic M130's crisply articulated, uncoloured sound is well suited to such demanding audiophile applications as digital and direct-to-disc recording.

What We Think

"The Beyerdynamic M130 is the figure-8 counterpart to the M160 (hyper-cardioid). Use the two together as a perfect-pair to record Mid-Side Stereo. The M130 is a great little mic for use on guitar amps, drums, horns, strings - anything that needs a little "de-tizzing" and warming up. The small dual-ribbon design helps to tame the low frequency somewhat, while retaining a big sound. Definitely, one of my go-to microphones."
