Beyerdynamic M160 Double Ribbon Dynamic Microphone

Double ribbon sensitivity, perfect for stringed instruments


Here’s what Beyerdynamic say:

Beyerdynamic is one of few microphone manufacturers world-wide that still produce ribbon microphones. A classic one is the M 160, a dynamic double ribbon microphone. Featuring a hypercardioid polar pattern with a noise attenuation of 25 dB at 110°, the M 160 is an outstanding microphone which is very effective for all types of remote and in-studio voice reproduction.

Double Ribbon Microphone

This microphone is no conventional microphone, but also happens to be a double ribbon microphone. Two overlaying, paper-thin ribbons ensure a high output level. As such, the M 160 is ideal for recording stringed instruments such as violins, violas, cellos and guitars as well as for guitar amps – while still retaining delicate dynamics.
