Audio-Technica AE2500 Dual-Element Dynamic and Condensor Cardioid Microphone
Includes AT8471 Isolation Clamp
AE2500 Dual-Element Dynamic and Condensor Cardioid Microphone
A revolutionary microphone for kick-drums, which houses both a dynamic and condenser cardioid element in the single mic. Phased perfectly together, this mic can give you a choice of blending the tone captured by the capsules, for that unique kick-drum sound.
Dual-Elements in One Mic
The dynamic element delivers the aggressive attack of the beater; the condenser captures the round tonalities of the shell. Two layers of resistive mesh form multiple densities over the dynamic element’s side-entry ports, exercising precise control over the time at which off-axis signals arrive at the diaphragm. The condenser diaphragm is optimally tensioned and aged for long-term consistency and stability.
Both elements of the AE2500 have their own outputs, as the package includes a 5m cable (5 pin XLR to 2 x 3 pin XLR) for separate control of each element. As well, the condenser element having an 80 HZ HPF switch and 10 dB pad, allowing the user to get a precise tailored sound. A specially designed isolation clamp is included, allowing shock protection, secure mounting and easy positioning.
- Revolutionary dual-element design represents a ground-breaking transducer achievement
- Two elements (condenser and dynamic) are enclosed in a single housing
- Dynamic element delivers the aggressive attack of the beater while the condenser captures the round tonalities of the shell
- Elements are positioned in a perfect phase relationship, something practically unachievable with two separate microphones
- Robust design for enduring dependability on the road
- Integral 80 Hz HPF switch and 10 dB pad on condenser element
- Includes isolation clamp for shock protection, secure mounting and easy positioning
- Includes a 16.5' (5 m) cable (5-pin XLRF to two standard 3-pin XLRM connectors) for separate control over each element
