The ATM450 cardioid condenser offers an innovative side-address stick design for endless placement options and minimal obstructions. The microphone is equipped with an integral 80 Hz hi-pass filter that provides easy switching from a flat frequency response to a low-end roll-off. The ATM450 also features a switchable 10 dB pad that lowers the microphone’s sensitivity, providing higher SPL capability for flexible use with a wide range of performers and system configurations. The microphone’s extended flat frequency response makes it ideal for high SPLs as well as for live and amplified acoustic instruments. The microphone offers uncompromising, clear, clean sound quality. The microphone’s cardioid polar pattern reduces pickup of sounds from the sides and rear, improving isolation of desired sound source. The mic’s rugged, all-metal design and construction are designed for years of trouble-free use. It comes equipped with an isolation clamp for shock protection, secure mounting and easy positioning.
