beyerdynamic M 201
Hypercardioid Dynamic Microphone
The M201 is a dynamic instrument microphone with a hypercardioid pickup pattern.
It uses a low-mass diaphragm made of Hostaphan (a polyester film similar to Mylar) and a humbucking coil to reduce electrical interference from nearby AC sources.
The specs for the 2001-era M 201 N(C) give a sensitivity rating higher than the currently shipping model — 2 mV/Pa rather than today’s version at 1.2 mV/Pa.
The mic ships with a mic clip (p/n MKV 8) and a foam windscreen (p/n WS 101).
Hypercardioid dynamic mic, can handle very high SPL. Useful for snare drum, freak high-SPL situations where you still need good midrange clarity. If the SM57 were a microphone, it would sound like this.
The beyerdynamic M 201 is also known as: M201, M 201 TG, M 201 N(C).
