The TM-60 is a lightweight, easy-to-use condenser microphone powered by a single AA battery. By using a battery rather than phantom power, this microphone helps to reduce your overall power consumption and makes it the perfect choice for mobile recording with handheld recorders, mobile interfaces or Portastudios where more power means more recording time. CAUTION – The TM-60 is not compatible with phantom power. Before connecting this mic to a device that can supply phantom power, always ensure that phantom power is turned off on that device. The mic will be damaged if phantom power (external DC power) is on. The TM-60 offers a wide frequency response for precise and smooth reproduction of virtually any sound source from vocals to instruments. Its unidirectional pattern can suppress sounds from the sides and rear, helping to bring out the intended source. Use a condenser microphone to easily capture precise, high-definition sound The TM-60 is a condenser microphone rather than a dynamic microphone usually used in live performances. Unlike dynamic mics, a condenser mic does not need a relatively heavy magnet and voice coil to convert acoustic waves into electrical signals. Instead, it uses a diaphragm coupled to an electrical condenser where vibrations are converted to changes in capacitance, realising a lightweight structure that helps to create a wider and smoother frequency response. To derive a signal from the changes in capacitance, electrical power is required. No external phantom power required – ideal for mobile recording Standard condenser microphones require external phantom power for their operation. A portable recorder’s battery life is often extended if phantom power is switched off. The TM-60 is operated by a single AA battery inserted in the microphone. To extend battery life, you can can switch the microphone off when not used.
