Designed to fit into tighter places easier, The M80-SH is a more compact version of the M80, yet retains its same sonic fingerprint. This makes positioning it on drums easier as compared to its full size brother. Also, because of its smaller size (and because of its built-in stand mount), the M80-SH makes a great mic for singing drummers, keyboard players and for the top of a Leslie cabinet. Due to its low mass capsule and super thin (yet surprisingly rugged) capsule membrane the M80-SH presents a wider range of emotion from a live vocal or instrument with an intimacy that has been traditionally reserved for studio quality condenser microphones.
The head grill and capsule assembly have been designed to reduce proximity effect resulting in added low-end clarity for vocals and instruments, while still providing strength and authority with an open airy character. A tight cardioid polar pattern and a frequency response boasting a subtle rise in the high-end result in a microphone that is is equally suitable for snare drum, vocals or instruments on both the stage and the studio.
The TELEFUNKEN M80-SH also features a custom wound impedance matching transformer which is where the magic really takes place. When coupled with the proprietary capsule assembly, the results have impressed engineers and artists a like. The M80-SH ships with two different drum mounts (M784 and M785) to allows even greater placement flexibility. It also ships with a 5-meter XLR cable with a right angle females connector, allowing it to remain low-profile even with the cable connected.
