TELEFUNKEN Elektroakustik has combined the three unique voices of its TEC Award winning Dynamic Series microphone line, and packaged them as the DD5 drum microphone set for drum recording and live performance applications. The TELEFUNKEN DD5 is a 5 piece dynamic microphone package design for drums in the studio and on the stage. Microphones include the M82 handling kick drum duties, the M80-SH on snare, and the M81-SH for toms.

TELEFUNKEN Elektroakustik created the M80-SH for use on snare drum and vocal applications where a lower profile microphone with right angle XLR cable is needed. The M80-SH is the same exact circuit as the M80 Standard, housed in a shorter microphone body with a built-on stand mount. The wide frequency response and higher SPL capabilities of the M80-SH offer the user a superior alternative to the midrange-laden character of many of the industry's standard dynamic microphones. A tight cardioid polar pattern and a frequency response boasting a subtle rise in the high end result in a microphone that is equally suitable for snare drum, vocals or instruments on both the stage and the studio. The M80-SH is finished on both the headgrille and body with a durable, textured black powder coat.

The M81-SH was designed with the goal of developing a mic that would not only complement the M80-SH, but also stand out in a universe filled with dynamic microphone options. Building off many of the strengths of the M80, the TELEFUNKEN M81-SH retains the same minimal proximity effect, superior feedback rejection, and an articulate mid-range. However, with the M81-SH, 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 fattening up toms, percussion and horns, or taming brighter vocals or thinner sounding sources. The M81-SH is identical to the M81 in circuit, but housed in a shorter microphone body with a built-on stand mount, and finished in a durable, textured dark gray powder coat on both the headgrille and body.

The TELEFUNKEN Elektroakustik M82 is a robust large diaphragm end-address dynamic microphone that has been designed for kick drum and vocal broadcast applications. Hand-assembled in CT, USA, the M82 features two independently functioning EQ switches: KICK EQ and HIGH BOOST, which in turn offer four unique voices. The M82's KICK EQ switch engages a passive filter that reduces some of the lower mid-range frequencies (centered around 350Hz) commonly cut when processing a kick drum. The HIGH BOOST switch tilts the upper mid-range and high frequencies (starting around 2kHz with a 6dB boost by 10kHz) to allow for extra articulation. In the flat setting (both switches off), the M82 is equally suited for vocals, guitar amps, and brass.
