The M99 is a studio-grade, dynamic voice-coil mic. The frequency response has been optimized for use in speaker stations in radio studios as well as for instrumental recordings. The application of the TG-X technology, a powerful neodymium magnet and a reduced-mass special membrane made of Hostaphan® give the microphonea powerful reproduction and excellent impulse behavior. The frequency response is very linear and allows a playback quality, which was previously achieved only with high-quality condenser microphones. Easily accessible switches on the bottom of the microphone allow switching between a linear playback and two equalizations for specific vocal and instrumental applications. It can be switched on a presence increase, which allows a balanced sound in close-up. The second switch position causes an equalization, as required for example for the decrease of a kick drum. The hypercardioid characteristic prevents feedback in live operation and allows a good separation between different instruments. The microphonecan process highest sound pressure with low distortion. The body of the M 99 is made of high quality aircraft aluminum and provided with a metallic paint finish.
