Amazing Dynamic MicI use this mic to play live with a nylon string flamenco guitar. This mic sounds great when I use it with a Fishman SA 220 or Loudbox Artist. Lots of gain before feedback and really feedback has not been a problem with this mic. I have used a few other mics brands that are well known but really like this one the best to my ears and others that have heard the mic. The response and sound is just wonderful it really pickups up the guitar well with very low proximity effect (no big boom) and the tone is great. It sound like my guitar nothing hyped or cut. Thanks SW for getting this mic to me and your service. If you are looking for a great mic for nylon string guitar to use live this is the mic for you.

Beyerdynamic M 201 TGAwesome.
Like a boutique SM-57 with a bit less bite in the mid-range.
Use it as my main mic for sampling percussion.

M 201 TG & Sweetwater......A winning pairRead a lot about this mic vs the SM57. This Mic is the best snare mic I've used. Very little EQ needed and the isolation ( no bleed) makes it a cinch to mix. I particularly like the construction and desIgn. Thanks to Randy for his help in the decision, I think I will get more of these in the future.

Full-range tone with SPL handling !First of all, there's no bad sounding Beyerdynamic microphone... For my needs, the M201TG performs admirably, love the snare drum tone captured by it. As opposed to an SM57, the M201TG sounds richer and fuller, not as boxed. So i can see how it'd be perfect for acoustic guitar. You can get very different hihat sounds with these baby, and stands its ground as an overhead. Sometimes it feels like a condenser but with the SPL handling and off-axis rejection of a dynamic microphone... It will put a smile in your face =)
