This Audio-Technica Artist Series Drum Microphone Set provides four microphones suitable for the recording of drums. For your kick, use the ATM250, a dynamic, hypercardioid mic with low-end emphasis that flatters bass drums. The dynamic ATM650 with its hypercardioid polar pattern will work for your snare. The two ATM450 microphones, with their high-pass filter switch at 80 Hz, are cardioid condenser microphones that can work as your overheads. Both mics boast an SPL of 152 dB. A carrying case is included, as are mounting accessories.
The Audio-Technica ATM250 is a dynamic microphone with a hypercardioid pick up pattern. The sensitivity is custom tailored to withstand high-sound pressure, ideal for capturing kick drum, brass, percussion, bass cabinets and other high-sound pressure sources. The neodymium magnet and output stage results in high gain and very low noise floor. The hypercardioid polar pattern delivers maximum off-axis signal and feedback rejection. The ATM250 includes a professional isolation clamp to provide secure mounting, versatile positioning and effective dampening of unwanted mechanical noise.
