Class-compliant drivers enable use with tablets like the iPad when using an optional power supply. (Read more about the US-2x2.)
The TM-80is a condenser microphone with cardioid characteristic ideal for vocals, drums, and acoustic instruments. It includes a shockmount to reduce unwanted low-frequency noise from the floor and a desktop stand for easy setup.
Cadioid Condenser Microphone for a pro vocal sound
A cardioid condenser microphone is the perfect all-around mic for vocal and instrument recording. The unidirectional pickup pattern keeps the recording from sounding too ambient. The TM-80 has an 18-mm aluminum diaphragm and a wide frequency response. With a maximum sound pressure rating of 136 dB SPL, you can safely use the TM-80 with guitar amps, drums and other loud instruments.
