TASCAM TM-180 Large-Diaphragm Studio Condenser Microphone

An outstanding value on a large-diaphragm cardioid condenser, TASCAM's TM-180 lends brightness to vocals and lead instruments. Shock mount and case included.

The TASCAM TM-180 large-diaphragm studio condenser microphone is a standard model in the TM microphone series, and includes a professional suspension mount to avoid noise due to vibrations during recording.

Capture precise, high-definition sound quality with a condenser microphone

TM-180 is a condenser-type microphone, which is quite different from the dynamic microphone usually used in live performances. Condenser microphones are largely divided into two categories: large-diaphragm types, and small-diaphragm types. While the small-diaphragm types have flat frequency response and tolerance to high sound pressure, the large-diaphragm types allows high sensitivity, low noise, and distinctive sounds. This is why the large-diaphragm types are relatively popular for vocal recordings. TM-180 applies a large size, 34mm pure gold-coated diaphragm, and it is often characterized by its bright sounds. The frequency response of TM-180 shows a distinct curve at 1 kHz and higher, and a loose peak especially around 9 kHz. By these characteristics, TM-180 excels in recording of lead instruments as vocal or sax, for a strong, standout sound.

Ideal for a recording of single sound source, with unidirectional characteristics to catch the target sound

TM-180 has a unidirectional pattern (cardioid). The unidirectional condenser microphone is ideal for recording vocal and any single sound source because it mainly picks up the sound from the specified direction.

–10dB switch and a low cut filter switch

read more The TM-180 features a low cut filter switch that enables you to eliminate background noise or any low frequencies on particular instruments that you want to get rid of. For recordings of percussion or other instruments with high sound pressure, by turning the equipped -10dB switch on -- it prevents distortion from an instrument that has high sound pressure during the recording.

Comes with a suspension shockmount, a soft mic case, and a hard case

A suspension shockmount is included, to prevent noise due to vibration during recording. In addition, a soft mic case and a hard case is included that prevents damage while carrying.
