 — With a low-profile design and rugged metal construction, the ATM230 excels in high-SPL applications, including the miking of rack and floor toms, snare drum and other percussion instruments — 

 

Singapore, 22 January 2016 — Audio-Technica, a leading innovator in transducer technology for over 50 years, introduces the ATM230 Hyper-cardioid Dynamic Instrument Microphone.

The ATM230 brings a model ideal for capturing drums and percussion 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 hyper-cardioid 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 is ideally suited for miking toms, snare and other percussion instruments.

  • Big, warm low-frequency response with excellent attack
  • Handles very high SPL at close range
  • Rare earth magnet for improved output and transient response 
  • Low-profile design permits versatile placement around drum kit
  • Hyper-cardioid polar pattern reduces pickup of sounds from the sides and rear, improving isolation of desired sound source
  • Rugged, all-metal design and construction for years of trouble-free use
  • Accessories Include: AT8665 drum mount; soft protective pouch  

  

ATM230 specifications:

  • Element: Dynamic
  • Polar Pattern: Hyper-cardioid
  • Frequency Response: 20 – 12,000 Hz
  • Output Connector: Integral 3-pin XLRM-type
