The ATM230 hypercardioid instrument microphone brings a compact drum model to Audio-Technica’s favorite Artist Series line. It is designed specifically for musical instrument pickup in the studio and on stage. 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 of the mic keeps the focus on the 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. The mic's polar pattern is more sensitive to sound originating directly in front of the element, making it useful for controlling feedback and reducing pickup of unwanted sounds. All this makes the ATM230 ideally suited for miking toms, snare, and other percussion instruments.
The microphone is enclosed in a rugged housing and is outfitted with an integral 5/8"-27 threaded stand clamp. The included AT8665 drum mount screws into the stand clamp to permit mounting of the ATM230 to the rim of a drum. A soft protective pouch is also included.
