Common name: Beyerdynamic Opus 66
Production Status: Discontinued / Vintage
The Opus 66 has been designed as a percussion microphone and is perfect for miking snare, toms, cymbals, congas and bongos etc. Designed to reject mechanical and handling noise it is ideal for mounting on drum hardware. The Opus 66 has a very impressive and accurate pick-up of percussive sounds with a transparent reproduction. This is due to a strengthened Macrolon ® diaphragm which is extremely stiff at the point where the coil winding is attached to the diaphragm. This extra stiffness ensures accuracy of reproduction and low distortion.
