TM-180 is the standard model in the Tascam microphone series that have been tested with the Tascam products, specialized in the bright sound quality. In addition to this, the product includes a professional-use suspension to avoid noise mixing due to the microphone vibration during recording.

A large-sized 34 diaphragm contains suitable frequency response that highlights the lead part
Condenser microphones are largely divided into two categories according to the size of diaphragm: large diaphragm types, and small diaphragm types. While the small diaphragm types have flat frequency response and tolerance to high sound pressure, the large diaphragm types allow high sensitivity, low noise, and distinctive sounds. This is why the large diaphragm types are relatively popular for vocal recordings. TM-180 applies a large size, 34mm pure gold-coated diaphragm, and it is often characterized by its bright sounds. The frequency response of TM-180 shows a distinct curve at 1kHz or higher, and have a loose peak especially around 9kHz. By these characteristics, TM-180 acquires a clear outline in the recording of lead instruments as vocal or sax, for a strong, standout sound.

ā€“10dB switch and a low-cut filter switch, that smooths out the harshness from instruments
Low cut filter switch that enables to eliminate the background noise or any low frequencies on some particular instruments that you want to get rid of. For recordings like percussions or other instruments with high sound pressure, by turning the equipped-10dB switch on, it prevents sound distortion from an instrument that has high sound pressure during the recording.

Comes with a suspension shockmount, a soft mic case, and a hard case
A suspension shockmount is included. A noise due to vibration during recording can be avoided as well. In addition, a soft mic case and a hard case is included that prevents damage while carrying.
