Beyerdynamic has just added two new microphones to its Touring Gear (TG) series. The dynamic kick-drum microphone TG D70 and the instrument microphone TG I51 use die-cast zinc housing and have a compact design and features that enable them to be used in both the studio and on stage.
The second generation of the TG D70 is the specialist among drum microphones. The large diaphragm microphone was designed specifically to record the kick drum in action. The TG D70 is compact and can fit into every hole on a typical kick drum as a result. The microphone can also be set up on a cajón and bass guitar amplifiers to optimally record the instruments’ sound.
Here’s a video of it in action:
The TG I51 brings out the best in every instrument – from snare and tom drums to electric guitar amplifiers and brass instruments. This lean microphone with the short shaft is a snap to attach to the stand or a snare drum with the help of beyerdynamic’s highly popular microphone holder MKV 87. The microphone enhances the toolbox used by producers and sound engineers while making their lives much easier.
beyerdynamic’s M88 capsule in the second generation of the TG D70 and the capsule system has elastic suspension, a feature that prevents impacts from the floor from being transmitted through the stand. The hypercardioid features of the TG D70 provide isolation from ambient noises and prevent acoustic feedback. The microphone completely suppresses rear sound and captures side sound ever so softly. These features make this dynamic microphone the perfect choice for drum recordings in loud environments like live concerts.
The TG D70 and the TG I51 are now available now for $249.00 and $129.00.
