Complete Live Sound Instrument Coverage

With the addition of the Artist Series ATM230 and Artist Elite AE2300, Audio-Technica now offers a complete line of high-performance instrument microphones. Both models excel in high-SPL environments, but are designed for distinct applications. The hypercardioid ATM230 (available as a single mic or in a 3-pack) features a rugged, low-profile design and included drum mount, making it ideally suited for miking toms, snares and other percussion instruments. The cardioid AE2300, with its exceptional high-frequency and transient response, is perfect for miking guitar amps, brass and woodwinds, plus drums and percussion. A mic for every instrument. Line your stage with A-T.
