Comments about Audio-Technica U853RU UniLine® Condenser Hanging Microphone:
This has proved a very good product for sound reinforcement for a choir situation. The price is very affordable compared the great quality. I would highly recommend it for any church choir, school choir, etc.

Q:I'm micking a choir loft that is 40' wide by 15' deep for 70 voices. Is the U853RU the microphone that you would recommend and if so how many for these dimensions? We have piano and kbd on one side (in front) and 12 piece horn/rhythm section on the other (also in front) so I need to eliminate as much ambient sound as possible
Q:We lost the plastic holder used to mount this mic in a stand? Where can I get a replacement part?
A:You may purchase a replacement AT8438 through any Authorized Audio-Technica Dealer.
Q:What is the working distance of the U853RU?
Q:How does the U853RU mini shotgun compare to the ES933
A:Fidelity on both is very good, the pick up pattern is what differentiates the two. The U853RU uses our UniLine type element which provides a very narrow, very directional pick up pattern (a 90 degree acceptance angle). The ES933 uses the more common cardioid type element which provides a broader directional pick up pattern (a 120 degree acceptance angle). The U853RU will provide better "spot miking" with less pick up of sound arriving at the sides of it and it has a greater working distance than a cardioid type element microphone. Please note that the U853RU comes with an attached 25 foot long cable and that the ES933 comes with an attached 50 foot cable.
