The M82 Large Diaphragm Dynamic Microphone from Telefunken is designed to capture kick drums and broadcast vocals. The M82 has an end-address design, a 35mm diaphragm and features two separate EQ switches, Kick EQ and High Boost. This allows you to tailor the microphone's response to the source.

The M82's Kick EQ switch engages a passive filter that reduces some of the lower mid-range frequencies, centered around 350Hz, commonly cut when processing a kick drum. This helps to keep your kick drum from sounding "boxy" and allows the low end to remain strong.

The High Boost switch tilts the upper mid-range and high frequencies, starting around 2kHz with a 6dB boost by 10kHz. For kick drum use, this allows for more beater attack when placed inside of a kick drum. For a source such as vocals or guitar amps, the high boost provides further articulation and airiness in the upper register.

These two switches work independently of each other, so they can be used together or not at all. Though it was designed with kick drum as its primary application, the M82 is suited to a multitude of sources such as vocals, percussion, broadcast voice, guitar and bass amplifiers, organ, and brass instruments.
