The IM500 miniature clip-on condenser microphone is a great solution for miking wind instruments, drums, and percussion. This diminuitive mic clips onto the bell of a trumpet, saxophone, trombone, tuba, or any other wind instrument, and its flexible gooseneck gives you a range of adjustment options. Its tight cardioid polar pattern makes theIM500 an ideal tool for use near monitor wedges, and its flat frequency response delivers a natural, powerful, and clear sound. A bass cut switch is built in, so you can be sure to capture your instrument’s sound accurately.
The ATM230 hypercardioid instrument microphone brings a compact drum model to Audio-Technica’s popular Artist Series line. 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 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. All this makes the ATM230 ideally suited for miking toms, snare and other percussion instruments.
The ATM230 features rugged metal construction that stands up to the rigors of live and studio applications, and comes with an AT8665 drum mount and a protective pouch.
Designed for use with brass, saxophone and other instruments, the ATM350U UniMount® mounting system gives you the tools to perform with confidence. The system features the ATM350a cardioid condenser microphone, a high-SPL mic that provides a clear, well-balanced response from any instrument. When teamed with the included AT8491U universal clip-on mount and strong, flexible AT8490 5″ gooseneck, the mic can be clipped securely to the bell of your instrument and positioned to stay where you want it – the gooseneck won’t flop around no matter how aggressively you move the instrument as you play. The microphone’s cardioid polar pattern isolates the instrument by reducing side and rear pickup, and the switchable 80 Hz high-pass filter on the in-line power module helps control undesired low-frequency noise. The system also includes an AT8468 violin mount with hook-and-loop fastener and a protective carrying case.
This versatile addition to the Artist Series features a new multi-stage flat grille design for precise positioning close to the sound source. Equipped with a neodymium magnet for high-output performance, the ATM650 has a frequency response tailored for clear sound reproduction of guitar cabinets, snare and percussion. A-T’s innovative dual-wall floating construction banishes handling noise.
IK Multimedia’s iRig Acoustic guitar interface is one of the easiest ways you’ll find to record your steel-string acoustic guitar, nylon-string guitar, ukulele, or other acoustic instrument. The iRig Acoustic gently clips onto your guitar’s soundhole with a rubberized clamp, while an MEMS microphone captures the vibrations of your guitar. Connect to your iOS or Android device with the built-in 1/8″ TRRS cable. There’s even a headphone output for monitoring your recordings. With the IK Multimedia iRig Acoustic interface in your guitar case’s accessory pocket, you’ll always be ready to record inspiration when it strikes.
Onstage or in the studio, the IK Multimedia iRig Acoustic Stage is a convenient digital acoustic guitar pickup system. Just clip this high-performance MEMS microphone and standalone preamp into the soundhole of your guitar, and you’re ready to go. Blend the iRig Acoustic Stage’s sound with your existing guitar pickup system via Aux input, and use the Blend and Phase controls to tailor it to taste. Eliminate annoying feedback with a powerful feedback suppression system while onboard DSP provides personalized tone calibration.
Its new hand-made capsule implements a sophisticated backplate design that provides a perfectly balanced sound, so it’s never harsh or aggressive – perfect for sources like high-hats and drum overheads.
It’s also one of the quietest small-capsule mics on the planet – and with the highest dynamic range and SPL handling in its class, along with attenuation pads and low-cut filters for superb flexibility, the sE8 is ready for any sounds you’re making, whether in the studio environment or demanding on-stage applications.
sE Electronics hand crafts the gold-sputtered capsule for their sE8 small-diaphragm true condenser mic in the company’s own clean room. The capsule’s innovative backplate design delivers a sublimely detailed, balanced sound and superior transient response as compared with other small-capsule condensers in its price range. The high end is sweet and silky smooth. Go ahead and add high-frequency EQ — you won’t introduce harshness or distort the transients. The sE8’s short, efficient signal path doesn’t employ ICs or transformers, and this is key to the mic’s remarkably natural performance in capturing acoustic instruments such as guitar, piano, strings, woodwinds, and percussion.
Designed for use with kick drums, floor toms, tympani, or other large drums where low-frequency energy is critical and SPLs are high, the sE Electronics V Kick is the most compact and versatile bass drum microphone in its class. The V Kick’s integrated swivel joint allows flexibility of placement, and its purpose-built capsule delivers a sonic character specifically tailored for bass drums. Further shaping of the sound is facilitated by two switches on the rear the microphone.
