The ATM230 hypercardioid instrument microphone brings a compact drum model 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 hypercardioid polar pattern keeps the focus on the 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. All this makes the ATM230 ideally suited for miking toms, snare, and other percussion instruments.
