Beyerdynamic 100668 M 160 (M160, M-160, M/160, m 160) Double ribbon mic, hypercardioid, 3 pin XLR

Double ribbon microphone (hypercardioid)

Instrumental miking such as saxophone 

Miking of drums (toms, hi-hat) 

MS-stereophony with M 130 

beyerdynamic is one of few microphone manufacturers world-wide that still produce ribbon microphones. 

A classic one is the M 160, a dynamic double ribbon microphone. Featuring a hypercardioid polar pattern with a noise attenuation of 25 dB at 110°, the M 160 is an outstanding microphone which is very effective for all types of remote and in-studio voice reproduction. In the recording studio, the M 160 is recommended for miking string instruments such as violins, violas, cellos and for pianos, saxophones as well as for hi-hat and toms. 

The non-glare black surface of the M 160 and its small dimensions allow the unobtrusive use in TV or film studios. In conjunction with the M 130 dynamic double ribbon microphone the M 160 is ideal for stereo recordings in MS technique.
