  • Overview


    The studio-quality AT3031, a low-profile cardioid condenser microphone from Audio-Technica’s renowned 30 Series, is known for a flat, extended frequency response, high maximum SPL and wide dynamic range. Its low self-noise (16 dB SPL) is perfectly suited for the most sophisticated recording equipment. Its low-mass diaphragm improves transient response, increases response bandwidth and reduces handling and mechanical noise transfer.
