A FOH engineer's best friend.

  • Summary: I love em. I personally own 5 of them. Great vocal tone, great on kick, a lot of girth and clarity. If you're looking for something a little more that your SM58's not giving you check it out.

One of the best all around microphones on the market. It's worth a try! IMO

  • Summary: Could not resist the great eBayer's sale price on this model microphone. It's the big brother to my M69TG which I use for woodwind instruments. The M88TG is a great all around mic for both vocals and instruments. It's frequency response is terrific and low feedback is an added bonus. The Shure mics are good but this Beyerdynamic mic is great! I'm satisfied with all aspects of the M88TG.

Great for soft vocals and Bass

12 September 2013
  • Excerpt: My first time buying a mic over the $100 range and I am very pleased. Robust enough to go on tour and good quality for the studio at a price a home-producer can afford. Does a great job of picking up whispery vocals and vibrato as well as deep, electronic bass tones. Takes two weeks to come in the mail, as it must be ordered from the factory, so don't expect overnight delivery.
  • Pros: Clear Sound, Durable

Great Microphone Greater Price

Rockin' Rick Regan, B&H Photo
18 June 2013
  • Excerpt: My microphone case includes a Neumann U87,a Sennheiser MK 416 and now an M88 TG by Beyerdynamic. What a great addition to the studio. It has a warm smooth sound and it is discreet. It does not pick up a lot of extra room noise at all. Solid and hearty this little gem is a great addition for the studio or when going out to record or perform. For the money this is way under-priced as it performs like a much more expensive piece of equipment.
  • Pros: Clear Sound, Compact, Durable, Easy To Use, Lightweight

An essential piece of my recording studio toolkit

  • Summary: I use an M88 at every session. This one is a spare, as I wanted to be sure to always have one handy when I'm recording. It has been my # 1 pick to record bass drum since '96. Unlike other mics for this application, it has the attack AND the tone that I don't get from any other microphone. And the hypercardioid pattern is helpful to keep all that other racket out of my kick drum.

Must have mic for any studio. The only mic to have if you need only one.

  • Summary: Exceptional mic for kick drum, bass and guitar cabs, male voice! Competes with md421 on kick, though needs a more distant placement from the drum for better performance (to my mind). Anyway, the kick literally kicks *ss and seem to not need any EQ, compression whatsoever. I should have gotten this mic first, before any other mics in my locker. In fact, now I am considering getting all Beyer mics (to the m201 and m88 TG I already have), especially ribbons.

Great for Trombone & Trumpet

Dave, B&H Photo
20 July 2011
  • Excerpt: I purchased this microphone after years of being curious about it. Recently I attended a Pink Martini concert, in which both the lead trumpet and trombone players were miced with it. Overall I would describe this mic as smooth with low-mid frequency warmth and de-emphasized high frequency response (but not anything to the extent of the blunt high frequency attenuation of an SM57). I tried it on trombone and it sounded just great.
  • Pros: Compact, De-ephasized highs, Durable, Lack of mid presence bump, Low frequency body, Not prone to harshness, Smooth sounding
  • Cons: De-emphasized highs, Lack of mid presence bump, Proximity effect overload, Sketchy on baritone vox

Beyerdynamic M88TG Crisp, Clean and Powerful.

  • Summary: I just played my first show with the mic a few nights ago and it didn't disappoint. My voice cut through the mix very nicely, with 2 guitars a bass and full kit. I look forward to using it more often and hopefully in a recording setting soon.
