M81 is the second model in the TELEFUNKEN Electroacoustics dynamic microphone series.
Designed with the goal of developing a microphone that was not only a complement to the M80, TELEFUNKEN Elektroakustik's first dynamic offering, but that also stands out in a universe full of dynamic microphone possibilities.
When the M80 was first launched in 2008, it quickly became a favorite in both live and studio environments. Its clarity and detailed and flexible usability for a variety of tasks have made it the most popular microphone in the TELEFUNKEN product line.
THE TELEPHONE M81 has some of the same characteristics, but unlike the M81, its top-end is slightly retracted, giving a smoother frequency curve and sound. It provides a microphone with a wealth of body and clarity and makes it a great tool for taming bright vocals, guitar and percussion, horns and springs that may sound sonorous.
TELEFUNKEN M81 fits uniquely on electric guitars, percussion, rack and floor toms, and brass instruments. The microphone's wide range of applications and robust reliability make it the workhorse.
The M81 has a finish in the same flint gray color and chrome head grille as the RFT AR-51, so the M81 is easy to recognize.
