Do you know this microphone? Beyerdynamic?
« on: January 03, 2020, 08:39:29 AM »
Hi folks, do you know this microphone? It looks similiar to old Beyerdynamic microphones (M88 or M69?) But there are no markings or screws on the grill ring. Is it a clone or an OEM product for Strässer, Dynacord ...? Cheers

Yes it's a Beyer. It's not an M88 nor M69 though. I have many Beyer mics and used to work for the distributor of Beyer in AUS. Never seen this model before. Email Beyer. They are super help people...

It sure looks like a vintage Beyer Dynamic, strange it doesn't have the engraving on the grille ring

This is an MBHO/Haun MB-216 dynamic.

You are right! 👍👍

With that name I was able to find further information in the WWW and yes, this is exactly the model I have here. (and probably the reason why Beyerdynamic did not answer my mail?   ;D)

I always thought that Haun is only building condenser mics, but thats not true, obviously. The still produce and sell dynamic microphones...

Thanks a lot, ombudsman, you are my microphone expert of the month.   ;)

Nice.

Is there any connection between MBHO/Haun and Beyer Dynamic?

I've never heard anything definitive, but this post from a Xaudia restoration says that MB used Beyer ribbons for their own line,  but built their own motors around them.

I have an MB-215 dynamic, it's a decent e guitar mic but it does roll off lows. I haven't tried it otherwise but I suspect it will be good for tamborine, shaker, strummed acoustic in a busy mix, maybe hi hat ?
