The new Audio-Technica Artist Series comprises rugged all-metal microphones that feature response and low-distortion characteristics to reproduce the details of virtually any sound source.
Handheld vocal models include the ATM710 cardioid condenser, ATM610 hypercardioid dynamic and ATM410 cardioid dynamic. Tailored for clear, full-range reproduction of acoustic and amplified instruments, the Artist Series instrument microphones feature fast transient response, low distortion/noise, and rugged, durable construction. These mics offer crisp, clear, well-balanced response, even at high SPLs. The Artist Series instrument microphones include the ATM650 hypercardioid dynamic and ATM450 cardioid condenser, along with a clip-on model, the ATM350 cardioid condenser; the ATM450 is a side-address stick design.
Accessories include a new violin mount and UniMount flexible gooseneck mount (both supplied with the ATM350), and an isolation clamp that provides versatile positioning and effective dampening of unwanted mechanical noise (included with the ATM250, ATM250DE and ATM450).
For the drums, the ATM250DE dual-element kick drum mic combines two capsules (a cardioid condenser and hypercardioid dynamic) in a single housing. The ATM250DE is also geared for toms, guitar and bass cabinets, as well as brass and upright bass. The ATM250 hypercardioid dynamic is ideal for high-SPL applications, including kick drum, toms, bass, brass and upright bass.
The new Audio-Technica Artist Series is available with MSRPs from $169 to $549.
