The TELEFUNKEN M81-SH was designed with the goal to develop a mic that would not only complement the low-profile M80-SH, but also stand out in a universe filled with dynamic microphone options.

The M81-SH retains the same minimal proximity effect, superior feedback rejection, and articulate mid-range as the M80, however 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 M81-SH ships with a leather microphone bag and 5 meter SGMC-5R XLR cable with right angle female XLR.
