The famous Greek singer Melina Aslanidou trusts the new Opus 900 from Beyerdynamic
As we say also in our advertisement, leading voices need leading microphones?! Thus Melina Aslanidou, one of the leading Greek feminine voices, selected the new leading microphone OPUS 900 from Beyerdynamic.
Mrs. Aslanidou, tried the new OPUS 900 and compared it with other microphones of the competition and she found it much more analytic, while thanks to the changing capsules, it gave her the possibility to change between dynamic and condenser microphones immediately, according to her need of the studio quality output of the condenser head or the high feedback resistance of the dynamic head.
Mrs. Aslanidou usually uses the handheld transmitter S900M with the metal body and the head CM960B that contains the capsule from the known dynamic microphone TGX-60 of Beyerdynamic. This capsule is one of the biggest in size dynamic capsules in the market and it is handmade manufactured in the factory of Beyerdynamic in Heilbronn of Germany, in order to ensured the high sound quality and the long time reliability.
