Beyerdynamic M130Double-Ribbon Bi-Directional Dynamic Microphone 

(Message For D.O'B. Sound Pro Price)

The beyerdynamic M 130's unique double ribbon element has superb transient response, creating a highly detailed sound with unequalled accuracy and transparency. The bidirectional figure eight polar pattern effectively suppresses unwanted interference from the sides. The M 130's balanced, uncolored sound handles a wide variety of applications. In conjunction with the hypercardioid M 160, the M 130 is ideal for creating an authentic stereo image through the use of the M-S (Mid-Side) technique.

The M 130 gives excellent results when the Mid-Side technique is used to record or broadcast a true stereo image. Its rugged design handles the demands of remote recording/broadcast sessions as easily as those of the studio. Alone, the M 130 allows the recording of background audience noise and concert hall "ambience" without unwanted resonances. In the recording studio it is effective with backing vocal groups, percussion and mounted toms. The M 130's crisply articulated, uncolored sound is well suited to such demanding audiophile applications as digital and direct-to-disc recording.
