Summary: Go-to mic for drum overheads and Glyn John's drum mic technique. Snare jumps out in a good way....also great paired up with the Beyer M201 dynamic mic on guitar cabs. Have a pair of these and would not mind another pair for the mic locker.
Summary: Just a beautiful little mic that has a smooth sound. The difference between it and the SM57 I was using before is striking. The M160 is fatter, cleaner, and much easier on the ears. Plus, it's a ribbon mic that can being put right up against the grill of a guitar amp. What's not to love?
Summary: I have only had this microphone for a week but I can see why it is so popular. It has a very nice, smooth, clean sound with an enhanced.colored midrange presence. Well built and surprisingly small. I wish I had two more!
Summary: The mic is perfect, it's great for guitar cabs. I ordered it through an ebay member and I actually went to his house in Los Angeles and picked it up. He was very nice and all went well. I am very happy with my new Beyerdynamic M160 robbon ic.
Summary: The M160 is the classic ribbon. Why do you think Hendrix and Zepp sound so good? Guitars, Strings, Drums, Vocals, whatever!! This microphone can handle all your needs. Tone for days. Nice rejection with its excellent hypercardioid pattern.. Solid Solid Solid...will last you a lifetime...Literally.
Excerpt: The Beyerdynamic M 160 is a small diaphragm hypercardiod ribbon mic with TWO ribbon transducers. It looks a little bit like a childs toy but don't get it confused! I am a student, musician, writer, and pretty good line dancer residing in beautiful Nashville, TN.
