Great microphones getting even better

Audio-Technica Ltd. announces the forthcoming arrival of the next generation of its renowned Artist Series microphones. Based on 40-plus years of research and development, and re-engineered from the ground up, the Artist Series features some spectacularly new and innovative microphones, in addition to upgrades of classic models, offering one of the most comprehensive selections of vocal, instrument and drum mics available from a single manufacturer.


Audio-Technica announces the next generation of Artist Series

Inspired by consultations with touring artists and sound engineers who rely on Audio-Technica microphones for rock-solid performance night after night, Audio-Technica engineers have turned “what ifs” into “why nots” as seen in the ATM250DE dual-element kick drum mic, and the ATM450 side-address condenser designed for flexible placement.


With a sound quality you’d expect from Audio-Technica, the vocal mics set industry standards in intelligibility, detailed reproduction and noise suppression. The new instrument mics feature a fast transient response and low distortion characteristics that faithfully reproduce the complex details of virtually any sound source. Whether used with wedges, in-ears, line-array or portable PA, the Artist Series mics help squeeze every ounce of performance out of any sound reinforcement system. And they’re tough! As the company that has produced studio condensers durable enough for stage use, Audio-Technica knows a thing or two about solid construction. The Artist Series is rugged to the core, with its all-metal microphones designed to perform flawlessly - despite the inevitable bumps and bruises of life on the road.


Full details as to the new range will be made available when the new Artist Series is officially launched worldwide at Summer NAAM in July and Audio-Technica Ltd expects shipments in Europe to commence during PLASA in September.
