Optimized for snare and tom close-miking.

The Beyerdynamic Opus 88 condenser microphone is a perfect choice for close miking toms and snare drums, and is designed to excel at professional sound reinforcement or recording. The snare drum is hit most often, the hardest, and produces a very complex sound pattern. The Opus 88 mic has been optimized for the snare, both electrically and physically, to capture a precise sound. With its patented microphone clamp with integrated preamplifier and 3-pin XLR plug the Opus 88 can easily and quickly be mounted to the rim. The short flexible gooseneck and the horizontal swivel joint ensures optimal positioning.

Studio this weekend.

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Used these this weekend at a studio. They put them on my top four toms (Im a drummer) they sounded great! Clipped on SUPER easy! And the necks bent reasonably easily and stayed where you put them. I'd use em again in a heart beat as long as i wasn't payin for em haha. Mic it self isn't big so it doesn't get in the way. These were great, i highly recommend them.
