AKG D880M Dynamic Handheld Microphone TM40 Ready

No longer available at zZounds
Supercardioid stage vocal mic.

Being a hardwire/ wireless convertible design, the D 880M is becoming the new standard microphone for lead and backing vocals on stage.

Never before has it been possible to produce a diaphragm with differentiating thicknesses. The Varimotion process allows the adjustment to take place at the diaphragm. The result is a quantum leap in sound performance.

The Doubleflex anti-vibration system reduces all kinds of interference.

The package includes the microphone, a stand adapter, and carrying case.

AKG D880 Handheld Mic Customer Review
Overall: 5 out of 5 stars
Sound
I love the sound on these mics. I use them to mic the praise team at my church and they are better than I expected. A lot of the instruments and musicians are in a tight space and I've only gotten feedback a couple of times and that has come from adding another brand mic into the picture.
Quality
It's a sturdy mic. It doesn't feel like it's going to break like some shure and nady mics do. It also has a nice feel to it. The casing feels kind of rubbery but it's solid. Feels good in you hand.
