Instrument Microphone

The dynamic moving coil microphone M 201 is suitable for professional use in radio, television and recording studios. Apart of that, it can equally well be used by orchestras and instrumentalists, if highest sound quality with optimal feedback suppression is desired.

A quality mic especially for recording snare drums
Matti2056, 08.02.2014
The mic is well packed, well manufactured and stylish. It looks and feels very professional.

I have been using the Beyerdynamic M201TG as snare mic in my studio. Being a hypercardioid mic the M201TG has tight polar pattern meaning it won't catch other sound sources from the sides. This is a major problem when recording snare drums - the hihat usually leaks too much to snare track. The M201TG sorts that problem out better than the usual Shure SM57. It sounds also brighter without being harsh. I haven't spotted any exaggerated frequencies or sound problems. It just gives a good pro sound and with carefull mic placement no eq is needed. There is no hum or any noise. Its small size is a big plus!

If you want a better mic than the SM 57 with just bit more money, get this one!

Improvement over the SM57
Branimir Bozak, 13.11.2018
I use it primarily on snare top, and it delivers much more details than the 57 or the i5, much nicer highs too.

Excellent side rejection, I think it's even hypercardiod, which makes it really pointy. The hihat bleed is minimal and sounds good too!
Easy to position, and it's not too bulky.

Solid, sturdy feel, robust microphone. Highly recommended!
