    M 130 - The Legendary Double-Ribbon Microphone – Handmade in Germany

    Updated 2023 iteration:

    For over 65 years the M 130 dynamic double-ribbon microphone continues to be considered the reference in the field of double-ribbon microphones due to its remarkably natural sound reproduction.

    The M 130 is ideal for stereo, room and instrument recordings and brings a popular and special ribbon sound that is characterised by warmth and precision. Depending on positioning and spatial situation, the M 130 can be used for studio recordings of drums, electric guitar amps, piano, acoustic guitars, orchestras, choirs and for all kinds of atmospheric recordings.

    Equipped with a figure-of-eight polar pattern, the microphone classic can be used not only for picking up various instruments, but also for stereo recordings in Blumlein or M/S stereo configuration.

    As a stereo microphone system, two M 130 can be used to create a Blumlein stereo system for an excellent sounding room recording. M/S recordings can be made together with a hypercardioid or supercardioid microphone such as the M 160 dynamic double-ribbon microphone or the MC 950 true condenser microphone.
