By PSW Staff • November 23, 2016 Audio-Technica’s ATM350D cardioid condenser instrument microphone and drum mounting system Audio-Technica is now shipping its new ATM350a cardioid condenser instrument microphone systems in six specially designed systems that provide discreet mounting solutions for a host of instruments, including woodwinds, strings, brass, percussion, drums and piano. Following in the footsteps of the ATM350, the ATM350a is capable of handling 159 dB max SPL, a 10 dB increase over its predecessor. This allows the mic to cope with an even greater range of powerful, dynamic sound sources. Like the ATM350, the new mic features a cardioid polar pattern that reduces side and rear pickup and protects against feedback. The mic’s in-line power module incorporates a switchable 80 Hz hi-pass filter to help control undesired ambient noise. “This is a notable update to one of our successful products,” states Gary Boss, Audio-Technica marketing director, Pro Products. “End-user feedback led us to provide additional mounting options and updated performance in the mic itself. This new variety of mounting options makes the ATM350a a versatile tool in the studio and its unprecedented build quality is perfectly suited for the road on a wide range of instruments and applications.” The six ATM350a microphone systems combine the instrument microphone with unique UniMount components, giving sound engineers and musicians plenty of dependable mounting options when working on stage or in the studio. Options include a rugged drum mount, all-new magnetic piano mount, upgraded universal clip-on mount, expandable woodwind mount, and two strong, flexible goosenecks (5-inch and 9-inch) that can be attached to any of the mounts.
