The world of recording has evolved rapidly in the last decade, but one thing hasn't changed…a great recording starts with a great microphone.

Tascam's TM-280 is a high-performance, studio quality condenser microphone that features:

  • switchable high-pass filter: allows the user to reduce rumble and eliminate low frequency energy when needed
  • 10dB pad: drops the input volume when your signal is loud enough to distort the recording

These features, when combined with the pure gold-sputtered diaphragm, allows the TM-280 to gracefully capture performances ranging from a delicate acoustic session to the powerful levels of electric guitars, horns, percussion and drum kit overheads.  And, while the TM-280 may be complex and sensitive on the inside, it is tough on the outside and built to last. Its premium components are protected by a durable internal construction on a stout framework, then encased in an aluminum shell and sturdy microphone mesh.

Things you should know:
  • Large Diaphragm – Ideal for vocal applications, the large, gold-plated 34mm diaphragm provides high sensitivity, low noise, and pristine clarity
  • Cardioid (unidirectional) Polar Pattern – Provides precise directional focus and increases the rejection of signal bleed
  • 80dB SN Ratio – This top-performing spec is achieved by using high-end components and ensures ultra-low-noise operation
  • -10dB Switch – When engaged, the -10db cut is used to help prevent clipping when recording high level sources
  • Low-Cut Filter Switch - The selectable Low-Cut filter is used to eliminate low-end noise for a cleaner mix
  • Shockmount and Pop Filter – These included essential tools are used to eliminate plosives and reduce unwanted traffic noise
