More than a Microphone. The Yaesu M1 Reference Mic
Yaesu says this mic is for the “discriminating” Ham. Laughs! That means it’s expensive. From their marketing below:
Ok that aside, it is pretty cool. Dual mic elements. Choose between a Dynamic or Condenser or tie them together in a Dual Mode to achieve the tonal quality you seek. Also easy record and playback of audio segments.
Below: Maybe Yaesu went back to the 1980’s for some mic design ideas. Recall the “Toilet Paper Roll Microphone Baffle” that many used on the Kenwood MC-50? They have a similar concept with the TBC –-Treble Boost Cowling. I tested it with and without. And yes there is noticeable frequency response difference using the TBC in place.—-
