TELEFUNKEN Elektroakustik is adding two new models to its popular dynamic microphone lineup. The new "Shorty" compact M80-SH provides the bright, open sound of the standard M80, while the new low profile "Shorty" M81-SH produces the darker, richer tones of the M81.

Both the M80 and M81 are available in standard and wireless capsule formats. Starting this summer, the "Shorty" M80-SH and M81-SH will be offered in these alternative, lower profile versions, with built in mic clips, making them ideal for tight applications on stage and in the studio.

M80-SH
The engineers at TELEFUNKEN created the M80-SH dynamic mic for use on snare drum and vocal applications where a lower profile microphone with right angle XLR cable is preferable. The wide frequency response and higher SPL capabilities offer the user a superior alternative to the midrange-laden character of common dynamic microphones. A tight cardioid polar pattern and a frequency response boasting a subtle rise result in a microphone that is equally suitable for snare drum, vocals or instruments on both the stage and in the studio.

M81-SH
The M81-SH was designed as a mic that would not only complement the M80-SH, but also stand out in a field filled with dynamic microphone options. Building off many of the strengths of the M80, the TELEFUNKEN M81-SH retains the same minimal proximity effect, superior feedback rejection, and an articulate mid-range. However, with the M81-SH, the top end is pulled back a bit, yielding a flatter overall frequency response. This combination results in a microphone with a wealth of body and clarity, making it a great tool for taming brighter vocals and guitar tones, and for fattening up toms, percussion, horns and thinner sounding sources.

The M80-SH is offered with either chrome or black head grills and ships with a leather microphone bag and 5 meter SGMC-5R XLR cable with right angle female XLR. The M81-SH comes with a leather microphone bag and 5 meter SGMC-5 XLR cable with right angle female XLR.

MSRP for both mics is: $249.00
