    The ATR1500 is an attractively priced step-up design. This handheld dynamic mic is tuned for clear vocal and instrument reproduction and consistent performance.

    • Q:

      ATR1500

      I am curious as to which is "forward" with respect to the microphone. In other words, how do I hold the mic to know I am speaking into the right portion of the cardioid pattern? I have checked FAQ's and the packaged paperwork to no avail.
      Thanks in advance. Gordon,

      • A:

        Imagine there is an arrow running through the microphone from the connector where it plugs in through the windscreen. The direction the arrow is pointing is "forward" with regard to the pattern. For optimal pick-up, the sound source should be directed into the windscreen from the direction of the arrow.
