Audio-Technica's new ATM230 Hypercardioid Dynamic Instrument Microphone offers a proprietary capsule for handling high SPL applications. ATM230 is ideally suited for miking toms, snare and other percussion instruments.

The Audio-Technica Artist Series ATM230 Hypercardioid Dynamic Instrument Microphone will be available in March 2016 with a U.S. street price of $139. Also available will be the ATM230PK pack with three ATM230’s with a U.S. street price of $349. 

The hypercardioid polar pattern reduces pickup of sounds from the sides and rear, improving isolation of 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 also features a rare earth magnet for improved output and transient response, as well as rugged, all-metal design and construction.
