Here’s the premier noise-canceling microphone designed for those critical jobs where side and background noise are unwanted. The M85RP is a super hyper-cardioid microphone which picks up the sound directly in front and extremely close. Especially effective in isolating the snare from the hi-hat, the M85RP is equally effective as an interview/commentator mic in live applications with high levels of ambient noise. You can even record a singer-guitarist with one M85RP for the voice, another for the guitar, with amazing separation. —Quoted from Fostex marketing brochure number 1429600010, dated June, 1988
