beyerdynamic M201TG

Instrument Microphone

The dynamic moving coil microphone M 201 is suitable for professional use in radio, television and recording studios. Apart of that, it can equally well be used by orchestras and instrumentalists, if highest sound quality with optimal feedback suppression is desired.

A quality mic especially for recording snare drums
Matti2056, 08.02.2014
The mic is well packed, well manufactured and stylish. It looks and feels very professional.

I have been using the Beyerdynamic M201TG as snare mic in my studio. Being a hypercardioid mic the M201TG has tight polar pattern meaning it won't catch other sound sources from the sides. This is a major problem when recording snare drums - the hihat usually leaks too much to snare track. The M201TG sorts that problem out better than the usual Shure SM57. It sounds also brighter without being harsh. I haven't spotted any exaggerated frequencies or sound problems. It just gives a good pro sound and with carefull mic placement no eq is needed. There is no hum or any noise. Its small size is a big plus!

If you want a better mic than the SM 57 with just bit more money, get this one!

Good mic
amiko, 15.08.2017
Universal mic for recording. So far I've used this in two recording sessions. I feel this is more natural sounding than an Shure SM57, and because this has a different pickup pattern, you can get a better isolation of hi-hat from a snare track. Good for electric guitars too. Seek out the best location in front of a guitar amp speaker and you will be rewarded.

Great mic, excellent SPL and HF detail
19.12.2015
The Beyer M201 is considered the fancyman's SM57. And for good reason - flatter response, extremely high SPL output, hypercardiod pattern. It's a no brainer on snare drums, sounds great. You can get further back for a more natural tone and the rejection is comparable to cardioid mics.

It sounds good on most things, to be honest, but there are pros and cons - especially if this is your first hypercardioid microphone. It can sound great on vocals or acoustic guitar, but they have to keep still or there needs to be some extra distance. If you have a female vocalist, give it a shot, but if she's a dancer forget about it.

The small diapraghm also means it's very prone to plosives and the proximity effect can be quite severe. Pop shields are your friend!

It's also not a mic to be used around careless drummers. I've more than 1 friend who put one too close to a snare and had a drummer cave the capsule in with a single hit., so be careful.

Overall a great mic, that will serve you well if give the treatment it deserves.

Improvement over the SM57
Branimir Bozak, 13.11.2018
I use it primarily on snare top, and it delivers much more details than the 57 or the i5, much nicer highs too.

Excellent side rejection, I think it's even hypercardiod, which makes it really pointy. The hihat bleed is minimal and sounds good too!
Easy to position, and it's not too bulky.

Solid, sturdy feel, robust microphone. Highly recommended!
