Drums and More

With the ATM230 hypercardioid dynamic instrument microphone Audio-Technica have introduced a model ideally suited to capturing drums and percussion. The mic’s proprietary capsule is designed to excel in high SPL applications, delivering full, well-rounded audio with an exceptional low-end.

The hypercardioid polar pattern reduces pickup of sounds from the sides and rear, improving isolation of the desired sound source – directionality that is aided by the mic’s low-profile design, which allows it to be placed in a wide variety of setups.

ATM230 is ideally suited for miking toms, snare and other percussion instruments and with its rugged, all-metal design and construction it will withstand the rigors of the road for many years to come.

ATM230 comes complete with AT8665 drum mount and a soft protective pouch and will retail in Australia for $299.

Audio-Technica is distributed by Technical Audio Group, 43-53 Bridge Road, STANMORE NSW 2048. Ph. (02) 9519 0900.
