Go beyond the capacity of overall tone reproduction with the ATM650 mic’s incredibly high tolerance of SPLs. With this dynamic mic, no longer worry about a microphone’s proximity to instruments causing feedback or the difficulty of capturing quality sound throughout expressive volume changes. Ability to withstand high sound pressure levels and roadworthy design make this mic a popular choice for guitar cabinets, snare drum and other percussion, whether recording or for live use.

One element of the microphone that is well-suited to instrumental use is its hypercardioid polar pattern. By being most sensitive to sound directly in front of the capsule, this dynamic microphone picks up the sound you want with very low capture of ambient sound. This instrument mic excels in percussion use, for example, providing superb snare reproduction while isolating it from hi hat sound. In addition to the hypercardioid pattern, neodymium magnet improves output and transient response. Wide frequency response is tailored to create smooth, natural sound reproduction.

Construction details provide further stabilization of sound and safeguard the mic from accidental damage. Dual-wall floating construction reduces handling noise and keeps performance consistent from mic to mic. Instrument mic is flexible and can be placed as close to the instrument as desired. Multi-stage flat grille means the microphone’s capsule can just about touch the instrument, and flexible stand clamp makes adjustments easy yet secure. Featuring an all-metal design, this mic is sturdy enough to handle years of use, even if minor bumps and bruises accumulate along the way. Most commonly used with drums and guitars, this microphone works well with any instrument.
