Gearank Recommendation

The M 201 TG was on our recommended list for Dynamic Microphones from June 2020 until May 2021 when it was replaced by more highly rated mics.

Although this was previously on our recommended list, there are now options with higher ratings in our guide to The Best Dynamic Microphones.


At first glance, it’s easy to mistake the M 201 TG for a small-diaphragm condenser microphone.

It is, in fact, a compact dynamic microphone with hum-cancelling coils.

Its size means it can be easily placed around a drumkit with little compromise on sound quality.

Aside from hum-cancelling, it was also designed to pick up as much sound from in front of the capsule while rejecting bleed from the back.

If budget allows, the M 201 TG is one of the best Snare Mics on the market today. It’s a community favorite, highly regarded in forums and groups, and definitely makes a fine addition to any studio.
