  • Q & A

    I have an interface that can only switch both or no channels on for phantom power. I know this is a dynamic mic, but will it still work with phantom power on?

    jeremydirkx

    Thank you for your inquiry. It will work just fine with phantom power turned on.

    How will this mic work with double bass in a live setting? Thanks

    RH

    Yes, I have used the ATM250 microphone on double bass. As with any microphone, proper placement is key.

    What is the Max SPL for the ATM250? Maximum input sound level for this microphone?

    aetk

    Dynamic Microphones, such as the ATM250, do NOT have a Max SPL specification. This is because dynamic microphones (a.k.a Moving-Magnet or Moving-Coil Microphones) can handle as much Sound Pressure Level (SPL) as one will throw at it. Again, Dynamic Microphones, not limited to A-T product, do not have a Max SPL specification, because they can handle all the SPL you will give it. Thanks!

    What is the difference, if any, between the discontinued ATM25 and the new ATM250?

    smoothsound

    Thank you for your inquiry. They are completely different microphones, although the ATM250 is the replacement for the ATM25. The ATM250 is also larger that the ATM25.
