TASCAM TM-80 Large Diaphragm Condenser Microphone

The TASCAM TM-80 is a large-diaphragm condenser microphone. I received my first one for free as part of a promotion when I purchased the TASCAM Series 102i USB audio interface.

When I first got one of these I mounted the microphone on a boom arm in my recording booth. That was ultimately replaced with a Shure SM7B. I now use these as the mics primarily around my podcast desk. I’m sure I’ll find more creative uses for them as they’re solid and they sound good.

The TM-80 works with the 48v phantom power activated on the mic preamp. This is a super sensitive microphone. It will pick up sounds you hadn’t accounted for, so you have to keep environmental noises to an absolute minimum. I’m pretty sure it picks up the sound of my computer running in the control room.
