M81 Reggae

The Telefunken M81 Reggae, featuring a three-color red, yellow and green paint finish and a Lion of Judah graphic is a tribute to the internationally known reggae artist Toots Hibberts of Toots & The Maytals. Frederick "Toots" Hibbert is widely recognized as the man who coined the word "reggae."

Building off many of the strengths of the M80, the Telefunken M81 retains the same minimal proximity effect, superior feedback rejection and articulate mid-range. However, with the M81, the top end is pulled back a bit, yielding a flatter overall frequency response. This combination results in a microphone with a wealth of body and clarity, making it a great tool for taming brighter vocals and guitar tones and for fattening up percussion, horns and thinner sounding sources.

The Telefunken M81's tailored frequency response makes the microphone exceptional on electric guitars, percussion, rack and floor toms, and brass instruments. This microphone's wide range of uses and rugged reliability make it the workhorse for the new generation.
