The Audio-Technica Artist Elite AE2500 dual-element instrument microphone features cardioid condenser and dynamic capsules combined in one housing. The dynamic element delivers the aggressive attack of the beater; the condenser captures the round tonalities of the shell. Two layers of resistive mesh form multiple densities over the dynamic element’s side-entry ports, exercising precise control over the time at which off-axis signals arrive at the diaphragm. The condenser diaphragm is optimally tensioned and aged for long-term consistency and stability.

Audio-Technica AE2500 Features:

  • Revolutionary dual-element design represents a ground-breaking transducer achievement
  • Two elements (condenser and dynamic) are enclosed in a single housing
  • Dynamic element delivers the aggressive attack of the beater while the condenser captures the round tonalities of the shell
  • Elements are positioned in a perfect phase relationship, something practically unachievable with two separate microphones
  • Robust design for enduring dependability on the road
  • Integral 80 Hz HPF switch and 10 dB pad on condenser element
  • Includes isolation clamp for shock protection, secure mounting and easy positioning
  • Includes a 16.5' (5 m) cable (5-pin XLRF to two standard 3-pin XLR-M connectors) for separate control over each element
