Continuously handmade since 1963 at the company headquarters in Heilbronn, Germany, the M 88’s excellent technical features make it a living legend. This dynamic moving-coil microphone is particularly impressive when high demands are placed on the sound, whether in studio or in live productions. Its transparent yet rich sound will lend every performance the necessary gravitas.

The M 88 dynamic moving-coil microphone has a frequency response of 30–20,000 Hz and is characterised by its natural sound, free of tonal colouring. It also delivers a clear signal even at extremely high sound pressures. This predestines it for a range of sound sources – in the studio and live on stage. When using it for a kick drum, sound technicians and drummers value its pronounced proximity effect. In addition, the M 88 is perfect for miking toms, electric guitar amps, bass guitar amps and wind instruments.

Whether in the studio or live on stage, the M 88 has enjoyed decades of immense popularity as a long-time favourite for vocals. In this aspect, it benefits from its excellent technical characteristics as well as its detailed bass response and smooth treble boost. In addition, the high-quality basic sound is perfect for further processing the signal.

Originally developed for recording speech, the M 88 is also an impressive podcast microphone. Thanks to its almost physically perfect directionality, interference is effectively muted. A neodymium magnet makes this microphone highly sensitive, which means it requires very little amplification. This also means it can be used with less powerful interfaces. Its pronounced proximity effect and wide frequency response make it an ideal companion for your next podcast production.

From a technical perspective, the M 88’s hypercardioid polar pattern is close to perfection. This has a number of advantages. This polar pattern prioritises sound coming from the front, while most of the signals from the sides and some from the back are reduced. This ensures excellent channel separation, i.e. the microphone is less susceptible to crosstalk from other nearby sound sources. In addition, the M 88 is less prone to feedback, making it suitable for use in noisy surroundings.

As with all microphones in the M series, the M 88 is handmade at the company headquarters in Heilbronn, Germany. From the diaphragm and the dynamic transducer to the microphone grille – acoustically relevant components are intricately made in-house rather than being bought in. This method, which is unusual in the industry, allows us to maintain control over the entire production process.
