Dual-element Instrument Microphone

  • Audip-Technica proven dual-element design features two elements (condenser and dynamic) enclosed in a single housing.
  • Neodymium dynamic element provides punch and attack, while thecondenser element captures the full audio spectrum.
  • Elements are positioned in a perfect phase relationship, somethingpractically unachievable with two separate microphones.
  • Perfect for kick drum, guitar amps and instrument use.
  • Integral 80Hz HPF switch and 10 dB pad (condenser element).
  • Versatile mounting options and effective dampening of mechanical noise thanks to included AT8471 isolation clamp.
  • Corrosion-resistant contacts from gold-plated XLRM-type connector.
  • Rugged, all-metal design and construction for years of trouble-free use.
