WINTER NAMM SESSION — Audio-Technica has introduced the AT2010 cardioid condenser vocal microphone, designed to bring the studio-qualify sound of Audio-Technica’s renowned 20 Series to the stage. Featuring the same 16 mm low-mass diaphragm found in the critically acclaimed AT2020 side-address studio condenser, this rugged handheld offers the performance advantages of a high-quality studio microphone at an estimated street price of $99. Ideal for use in live performance where phantom power is available, the AT2010 excels wherever articulate, crystal-clear vocals are needed. The AT2010 is perfect for solo performances, jazz vocalists, singer/songwriters and house of worship applications.
The AT2010 provides an extended flat frequency response (40-20,000 Hz) with superior transient response resulting in smooth, natural sonic characteristics. The AT2010’s fixed cardioid polar pattern allows isolation of the desired sound source thereby reducing pickup of unwanted sounds from the sides and rear. The mic is able to handle extremely high SPLs (136 dB) and has a wide dynamic range (113 dB); its multi-stage grille offers excellent protection against plosives and sibilance without compromising high-frequency clarity.
The AT2010 requires 48V phantom power that may be provided by a mixer/console or by an in-line source such as the Audio-Technica AT8801 single-channel and CP8506 four-channel phantom power supplies. Output from the AT2010 is via a low-impedance, 3-pin XLRM-type connector. In addition, the AT2010 measures 7.05" long, has a maximum body diameter of 2.00", weighs 8.2 oz., and comes with the AT8470 Quiet-Flex™ microphone stand clamp and a soft protective carrying pouch.
The AT2010 will be available February 2007 with a U.S. MSRP of $169.00 (estimated street price of $99.00).
