TELEFUNKEN Introduces New M82 Dynamic Mic @ Winter NAMM

Engineered for Kick Drum and Broadcast Applications

January 08, 2013 --
DMN Newswire--2013-1-8--TELEFUNKEN Elektroakustik of South Windsor, CT is introducing the new M82 dynamic cardioid microphone at Winter NAMM 2013. 



Following the same design approach as TELEFUNKEN's other popular Dynamic Series microphones, the new M82 was created to provide a superior alternative to familiar kick drum large diaphragm dynamic microphones.  



Hand-assembled and tested in the company facility in Connecticut, the M82 is a robust dynamic microphone that features a large 35mm diaphragm with superb low frequency capabilities.

The M82 is an end-address microphone, meaning that the top portion of the headgrille is pointed at the sound source, and features two separate EQ switches: KICK EQ and HIGH BOOST.  These two switches function independently of each other, providing four unique settings.  The M82 makes it simple to tailor the microphone's response to the source.


The M82's KICK EQ switch engages a passive filter that reduces some of the lower mid-range frequencies (centered around 350Hz) commonly cut when processing a kick drum.  This helps to keep the kick drum from sounding "boxy" and allows the low end to remain strong.  This particular setting is tailored specifically for kick drum use.

The HIGH BOOST switch tilts the upper mid-range and high frequencies (starting around 2kHz with a 6dB boost by 10kHz).  For kick drum use, this allows for more beater attack when placed inside a kick drum.  This gives the option of either a vintage-style kick drum sound, or a more modern sound.  For a source such as vocals or guitar amps, the high boost provides further articulation and airiness in the upper register.

Though it was designed with the kick drum as a primary application, the two EQ switches make the M82 equally suited for a multitude of sources such as vocals, percussion, broadcast voice, guitar and bass amplifiers, organ, and brass instruments.

On kick drum, the M82 is both fat and punchy.  When placed just inside the hole of the resonant head, the M82's tailored frequency response captures both the beater attack and shell resonance without the need for multiple microphones.

Constructionwise, the M82 borrows heavily from the U47 body style by employing a headgrille of similar architecture.  Finished in a durable smooth black finish on the headgrille and body, the M82 was rigorously tested to ensure it could handle the rugged role of a kick drum microphone for both studio and live environments.

The TELEFUNKEN Elektroakustik M82 is delivered with a stand mount adapter and protective zipper case.  An optional elastic suspension mount is available.
MSRP: $399
