The small diaphragm responds instantaneously to transients, accurately capturing percussive attacks. Its supercardioid polar pattern and precisely tailored low frequency roll-off enhance the isolation of individual drums while reducing interference from the bass drum and floor toms. The small size of the M422 allows it to be placed anywhere around the drum without hampering the drummer’s freedom of movement. Its solid aluminum case handles the physical abuse a drum set must endure.

The TG-X 50 is a large-diaphragm dynamic microphone intended for use on kick drum and other bass instruments.
It is built into the case of the M 380, but differs from that mic in just about every other respect. The TG-X 50 is hypercardioid, and uses a traditional moving-coil capsule rather than a repurposed headphone driver.

The D7 reference dynamic vocal microphone creates the subtle and open sound of a condenser capsule with the powerful resonance of a dynamic microphone. The patented dual-layer Varimotion diaphragm can vibrate unhindered, which results in an extraordinarily crisp and clean sound. The unique laminated material damps high resonance peaks in the frequency response, which in combination with the tight, supercardioid polar pattern enables the D7’s outstanding high gain before feedback.

Its mechano-pneumatic capsule suspension and an integrated high-pass filter effectively eliminate handling noise. A precision metal dust filter provides a consistent protection for the diaphragm, ensuring an extra-long life.
