141st AES Convention, Los Angeles, CA 09-29-2016 Audio-Technica (booth 503), a leading innovator in transducer technology for over 50 years, is displaying its new ATM350a Microphone Systems. Offering crisp, clear, well-balanced response even in very high SPL applications, the ATM350a Cardioid Condenser Instrument Microphone comes in six specially designed systems that provide discreet, rock-solid mounting solutions for a host of instruments, including woodwinds, strings, brass, percussion, drums and piano.

Following in the footsteps of the popular ATM350, the ATM350a is capable of handling 159 dB max SPL, a 10 dB increase over its predecessor. This allows the mic to cope with an even greater range of extremely powerful, dynamic sound sources. Like the ATM350, the new mic features a cardioid polar pattern that reduces side and rear pickup and protects against feedback. The mic’s in-line power module incorporates a switchable 80 Hz hi-pass filter to help control undesired ambient noise.

“This is a notable update to one of our successful products,” stated Gary Boss, Audio-Technica Marketing Director, Pro Products. “End-user feedback led us to provide additional mounting options and updated performance in the mic itself. This new variety of mounting options makes the ATM350a a versatile tool in the studio and its unprecedented build quality is perfectly suited for the road on a wide range of instruments and applications.”

The six ATM350a Microphone Systems combine the instrument microphone with unique UniMount® components, giving sound engineers and musicians plenty of dependable mounting options when working on stage or in the studio. Options include a rugged drum mount, all-new magnetic piano mount, upgraded universal clip-on mount, expandable woodwind mount, and two strong, flexible goosenecks (5" and 9") that can be attached to any of the mounts.
