  • Overview


    The Artist Elite AE6100 hypercardioid dynamic vocal microphone delivers clean articulation, fast transients and high-output, assertive sound for the uncompromising vocalist. With a polar pattern tailored for outstanding on-axis response, the microphone offers maximum feedback rejection and superior anti-shock engineering for low handling noise. For ultimate protection against vocal plosives, the mic’s hardened-steel outer grille is lined with fine steel mesh and a layer of open-cell foam. A foam disk positioned on top of the element assembly provides the final layer of “pop” protection.

    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.
