    The ATM230 hypercardioid instrument microphone brings a compact drum model to Audio-Technicaís popular Artist Series line. The micís proprietary capsule is designed to excel in high SPL applications, delivering full, well-rounded audio with an exceptional low-end. The hypercardioid polar pattern keeps the focus on the sound source, directionality that is aided by the micís low-profile design, which allows it to be placed in a wide variety of setups. All this makes the ATM230 ideally suited for miking toms, snare and other percussion instruments.

    The ATM230 features rugged metal construction that stands up to the rigors of live and studio applications, and comes with an AT8665 drum mount and a protective pouch.

        Comments about Audio-Technica ATM230 Hypercardioid Dynamic Instrument Microphone:

        I've been using Sennheiser 421's and CAD M179's on my toms for years and I thought I'd give the ATM230 a try. The ATM230 has a finished sound and it sits in a drum mix better than anything I've used in the studio. The ATM230 has really nice isolation due to its hyper-cardioid design unlike the 421 has bleed that sounds like trashcan lids. I ended up purchasing a 3-pack so now I have 4 of them. I couldn't be happier. Not only am I an engineer, I am also a drum builder and to hear the toms with these mics makes it all worth it.
