Audio-Technica Introduces ATM350a Microphone Systems

New ATM350a instrument mic with UniMount components offers multiple instrument mounting solutions.

Audio-Technica’s ATM350W Cardioid Condenser Instrument Microphone and Woodwind Mounting System shown with ATM350a microphone, AT8491W woodwind mount and AT8490 5-inch gooseneck.

 

At the 141st AES Convention in Los Angeles, Auido-Technica (booth #503) is displaying its new ATM350a Microphone Systems. Offering crisp, clear, well-balanced response even in very high SPL applications, the ATM350a Cardioid Condenser Instrument Microphone comes in six specially designed systems that provide discreet, rock-solid mounting solutions for a host of instruments, including woodwinds, strings, brass, percussion, drums and piano.

Following in the footsteps of the ATM350, the ATM350a is capable of handling 159dB max SPL, a 10dB increase over its predecessor. This allows the mic to cope with an even greater range of extremely powerful, dynamic sound sources. Like the ATM350, the new mic features a cardioid polar pattern that reduces side and rear pickup and protects against feedback. The mic’s in-line power module incorporates a switchable 80 Hz hi-pass filter to help control undesired ambient noise.

The six ATM350a Microphone Systems combine the instrument microphone with unique UniMount components, giving sound engineers and musicians plenty of dependable mounting options when working on stage or in the studio. Options include a rugged drum mount, all-new magnetic piano mount, upgraded universal clip-on mount, expandable woodwind mount, and two strong, flexible goosenecks (5 inches and 9 inches) that can be attached to any of the mounts.
