Go beyond the capacity of overall tone reproduction with the ATM450 mic’s 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. Every aspect of this microphone’s audio performance and design combine to create an outstanding sound solution for overheads, percussion, acoustic guitar, strings, and other acoustic instruments.

One element of the condenser microphone that is well-suited to instrumental use is its cardioid polar pattern. Pick up is limited to sound source in front of the microphone, limiting pickup of background noise, and working to control feedback. Already featuring a high sound pressure level threshold of 152 dB, a 10 dB switchable pad helps the microphone tolerate SPLs up to 162 dB. Integral 80 Hz high-pass filter allows option of flat frequency response or low-end roll-off with one switch. Phantom power of 11V to 52V is required to operate this condenser microphone.

Construction details provide further stabilization of sound and safeguard the mic from accidental damage. Unique side-address stick design gives you more options for mic placement without adding any obstructive attributes. Isolation clamp offers secure mounting, versatile positioning, and effectively dampens unwanted mechanical noise. With flat capsule head, the mic can be placed close to an instrument without getting in the way. 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. ATM450 delivers uncompromising sound quality in professional live-sound and studio applications, making it a top choice for instrumentalists of all kinds.
