    Answer: 
    Typically speaking, Dynamic Microphones (like the AE6100) do not have an SPL rating/specification. A reason for this is because dynamic microphones have superior SPL handling capabilities, as compared to condenser microphones which have on-board electronics that can be over-loaded. The AE6000 is an excellent sounding microphone that will sound great with vocals, snare, toms, kick, guitar/bass cabinets, anything high SPL application (etc.).

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your inquiry. This will work very well in front of an amp. It could work in front of an acoustic guitar, although being a dynamic mic it is not overly sensitive.

    I am a drummer who sings in a 3-piece live band. I bought this mic based on great reviews and I love the mic. However, i'm experiencing some isolation issues in regard to bleed from my cymbals and higher frequency stuff floating around the stage. We've tried EQing the mic but to no avail. Can you suggest anything? Apart from try a different mic (which I don't really want to do)

    Answer: 
    thank you for your inquiry. Please note that the AE6100 has a hypercardioid pick up angle. This is great for side rejection but does have a bit of a pick up lobe at the rear of the mic. You will need to work with placement to keep the rear of the mic away from the cymbals.
