BFBS Radio, part of the British Forces Broadcasting Service (BFBS), which broadcasts to Her Majesty's Armed Forces and their dependents worldwide, has purchased four Microtech Gefell M930 large diaphragm condenser microphones as part of the complete refurbishment of its studio complex.

The Buckinghamshire-based station's purchase also included EH93-P suspensions and matching Håkan P110 Pop Killers.

According to Microtech Gefell, BFBS tried and tested several alternatives before choosing the M930 as the best for the studio, and is "also happy how the microphones perform with music, as they have used them for a music recording as well as for presenters in the talk studio".
