TASCAM TM-80 Large-Diaphragm Condenser Microphone

Outfit your desktop recording studio for a nice price with TASCAM's TM-80 condenser microphone. Package includes a desk stand, shock mount, and an XLR cable.
A cardioid condenser mic is the perfect all-around mic for vocal and instrument recording, and the unidirectional pickup pattern keeps the recording from sounding too ambient. The TASCAM TM-80 has an 18mm aluminum diaphragm and a wide frequency response. With a maximum sound pressure rating of 136dB SPL, you can safely use the TM-80 with guitar amps, drums and other loud instruments.

Package includes shock-absorbing suspension, table-top mic stand and mic cable

Included are essential microphone accessories -- a shock-absorbing suspension to reduce bass rumble, 6-foot mic cable and table-top mic stand -- allowing you to set up at your desktop and record right away.

"Wow! Great Sounding Mic For a Great Price!"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I bought this microphone for my studio, because I had a recording session lined up for a demo, and I needed to get a mic quickly and inexpensively to record acoustic guitar. This mic had really good recommendations for recording acoustic guitars, so I chose it. it didn't disappoint! I got a warm, crisp and clean acoustic guitar sound from this mic. It records sounds like microphones from a higher price range. I'm very pleased. Sure, there are some more expensive mics that probably sound better, but the sound I got from this one gave my demo a great acoustic guitar recording and it was easy to pick up quickly from zZounds for a great price and fast shipping. Also, as always, zZounds makes purchasing gear even easier with their payment plans. Thanks Tascam and thanks zZounds for helping me get the gear I needed to make a great demo for my client!
