Cardioid condenser and dynamic dual-element instrument microphone

Manufacturer: Audio Technica
Category: Wired Microphones
SKU: AE2500
Availability: Call
MSRP: $549.00
The ultimate kick-drum mic, the Artist Elite AE2500 dual-element instrument microphone features cardioid condenser and dynamic capsules combined in one housing. The dynamic element delivers the aggressive attack of the beater; the condenser captures the round tonalities of the shell. Two layers of resistive mesh form multiple densities over the dynamic element's side-entry ports, exercising precise control over the time at which off-axis signals arrive at the diaphragm. The condenser diaphragm is optimally tensioned and aged for long-term consistency and stability.
  • Revolutionary dual-element design represents a ground-breaking transducer achievement
  • Two elements (condenser and dynamic) are enclosed in a single housing
  • Dynamic element delivers the aggressive attack of the beater while the condenser captures the round tonalities of the shell
  • Elements are positioned in a perfect phase relationship, something practically unachievable with two separate mic
  • XLR ensures a reliable wired connection
  • With 20 Hz - 17 kHz frequency range, listen to deep lows and euphoric highs
  • Compact size lets you carry it easily all day long
