Audio-Technica displayed its ATM350a Microphone Systems at 2017 NAMM Show. The ATM350a Cardioid Condenser Instrument Microphone comes in six specially designed systems that provide mounting solutions for a host of instruments, including woodwinds, strings, brass, percussion, drums and piano.
Following in the footsteps of the ATM350, the ATM350a is capable of handling 159 dB max SPL. This allows the mic to cope with an even greater range of extremely powerful, dynamic sound sources. Like the ATM350, the new mic features a cardioid polar pattern that reduces side and rear pickup and protects against feedback. The mic’s in-line power module incorporates a switchable 80 Hz hi-pass filter to help control undesired ambient noise.
The six ATM350a Microphone Systems combine the instrument microphone with UniMount components, giving sound engineers and musicians mounting options when working on stage or in the studio. Options include a rugged drum mount, all-new magnetic piano mount, upgraded universal clip-on mount, expandable woodwind mount, and two flexible goosenecks (5in and 9in) that can be attached to any of the mounts.
