During a drum recording session James tries the new AE2300 Dynamic mic on Snare drum, the ATM230 on Floor Toms and the ATM350D on Rack Toms.
James lets you hear how the mics sound on the individual drums and when combined with the other mics in a kit set up. He then goes on to talk about and show how he processes the kit with outboard compression and desk EQ.
AE2300 Cardioid Instrument Microphone
The AE2300 excels in high SPL applications like drums maintaining directionality across the entire frequency range.
A Double-dome diaphragm design improves high frequency and transient response with minimal off-axis coloration.
ATM230 Hypercardioid Dynamic Instrument Microphone
The ATM230 is a hypercardioid polar pattern mic that greatly improves off-axis rejection.
It handles very high SPL at close range making it great for drums and brass with a big and warm low-frequency response with excellent attack.
The low-profile design permits versatile placement on drum kit.
ATM350D Cardioid Condenser Instrument Microphone With Drum Mounting System
The ATM350D is a rugged drum mounted mic that allows for greater robustness on the road with a small format mount that reduces vibration and minimises the chance of damage from stick hits.
It is built to handle extremely powerful, dynamic sound sources.
A large selection of other mount options available separately.
The ATM350D comes with a AT8490 Gooseneck.
