The Beyerdynamic M88 TG Dynamic Microphone is a classic vocal and instrument microphone which has found fame on many voices as well as being a go-to for kick drum and more. Some products are born classics and the M88 has to take centre-stage for being far ahead of its time when it was first introduced in the 1960`s. Incorporating a new low-mass diaphragm element, the M88 TG has earned its place in history in the Kick Drum (for this application, the use of an external popshield like PS 88 or WS 59 is strongly recommended). Sound engineers have found that the lightning-fast transient response of the microphone reproduces the complex sound patterns of this instrument resulting in the tight `thump` without the need for complex signal processing.

This characteristic works equally well on other instruments especially where intricate low frequencies and their harmonics need to be captured. The M88 TG is one of the most frequently specified microphones by sound engineers worldwide and heralded a beyerdynamic contemporary classic as this microphone becomes renown for capturing emotive audio signals.

The M88 TG offers both a wide frequency response and rugged construction making an ideal combination for many applications. In the studio and live use its high SPL capability allows the microphone to be placed close to loud sound sources such as kick drum and bass guitar (when using with a kick drum, an additional windshield such as WS 59 or PS 88 has to be used). It is also equally impressive as a vocal microphone or for brass and woodwind instruments.

The M88 TG has a reinforced basket to withstand rough handling when being used for more demanding applications. The M 88 TG is often used in a broadcast environment as an announcers or EFP microphone.
