Product Description for the Beyerdynamic M-99
The M 99 is a dynamic moving coil microphone of studio quality. The tailored frequency response suits many applications from instrument miking to on-air broadcasting. The beyerdynamic TG-X technology used in the M 99 features a strong neodymium magnet system and a mass reduced special Mylar diaphragm to give the microphone a powerful reproduction with excellent transient characteristics.
The frequency response is extremely linear and guarantees audio quality which has until now, only been achieved by using high- quality condenser microphones. The frequency select switch at the base of the microphone allows three settings of equalisation, linear and two optimised settings for vocals and instrument miking. A second switch is for presence accentuation. This allows further adjustment for close miking techniques or kick drum miking. The hypercardioid polar pattern helps eliminate feedback in live applications and allows a good separation between different instruments.
The microphone can operate at very high sound pressure levels without loss of sound quality and virtually no distortion. The M 99’s die cast casing is made of aircraft grade aluminium and finished with an attractive metallic varnish.
