Over the last decade the M80 has become a staple in live sound reinforcement and studio recording. Its wide frequency response, condenser-like performance, and high SPL capabilities allow the M80 to capture the full range of any sound source, making it a reliable first choice for many sources including lead vocals and snare drum. Its unmatched performance is mated with intelligent internal construction to provide low handling noise. Hand-assembled in the USA, the M80’s rugged build quality is designed to withstand the wear and tear of the road.
Featuring a rugged black powder coat body and head-turning chrome plated headgrille, the M80 is built for the high demands of a touring vocal mic.
Each M80 Dynamic microphone ships with a leather zipper bag and M780 mic clip.
