beyerdynamic has announced the expansion of the Opus line of microphones, introduced during 2000. Two percussion microphones have been added.
The Opus 62 is a high performance, low profile clip-on dynamic microphone designed for rack tom and percussion applications. The capsule is attached to a four-inch gooseneck and is externally shock isolated to prevent excessive transient response. A neodymium element provides increased output, while a tight polar pattern enhances off-axis noise rejection. Pro User Net on the Opus 62 is $199.00, $279 Canadian. The Opus 66 is a superior low profile percussion microphone using advanced materials to withstand the impact of highly energetic percussionists. The Opus 66 eliminates the need for microphone stands, as it is equipped with a newly introduced universal drum mount. The microphone is housed within a rocking arm for further flexibility and ideal positioning. The Opus 66 has an internal shock mount to reduce unwanted transient noise and features a neodymium element for high output. Pro User Net on the Opus 66 is $259, $369 Canadian.
