FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE


Audio-Technica Announces the ATM230 Hypercardioid Dynamic Instrument Microphone


— With a low-profile design and rugged metal construction, the ATM230 excels in high-SPL applications, including the miking of rack and floor toms, snare drum and other percussion instruments —


STOW, OH, February 4, 2016 Audio-Technica, a leading innovator in transducer technology for over 50 years, introduces the ATM230 Hypercardioid Dynamic Instrument Microphone. The ATM230 brings a model ideal for capturing drums and percussion 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 reduces pickup of sounds from the sides and rear, improving isolation of desired 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. ATM230 is ideally suited for miking toms, snare and other percussion instruments.

ATM230 Features:

  • Big, warm low-frequency response with excellent attack
  • Handles very high SPL at close range
  • Low-profile design permits versatile placement around drum kit
  • Hypercardioid polar pattern reduces pickup of sounds from the sides and rear, improving isolation of desired sound source
  • Rugged, all-metal design and construction for years of trouble-free use

ATM230 Specifications:

  • Element: Dynamic
  • Polar Pattern: Hypercardioid
  • Frequency Response: 20 – 12,000 Hz
  • Output Connector: Integral 3-pin XLRM-type
  • Accessories Included: AT8665 drum mount; soft protective pouch

The Audio-Technica Artist Series ATM230 Hypercardioid Dynamic Instrument Microphone will be available March 2016 with a U.S. street price of $139.00. Also available will be the ATM230PK pack with three ATM230’s with a U.S. street price of $349.00.
