— The Artist Elite® AE2300 Dynamic Cardioid Instrument Microphone excels at capturing sound from guitar amps, brass and percussion instruments, and other high-SPL sources —

STOW, OH Audio-Technica, a leading innovator in transducer technology for over 50 years, introduces its new Artist Elite® AE2300 Dynamic Cardioid Instrument Microphone. The AE2300 features Audio-Technica’s proprietary double-dome diaphragm construction, giving it high-frequency and transient response that far exceeds typical dynamic microphones. With its rugged, brass metal construction and low-profile design (able to be placed unobtrusively in a variety of applications) and the ability to handle high SPLs, the AE2300 is a versatile performer, able to capture sound from guitar amps, brass and woodwinds, drums and percussion instruments with clarity and precision.

The double-dome diaphragm construction allows the AE2300 to maintain directionality across the entire frequency range, with little off-axis coloration (frequency response is nearly identical at 0°, 90° and 180°) for excellent phase cohesion in multiple-mic setups. The microphone is also equipped with a switchable low-pass filter that cuts out harsh, high-frequency noise, such as hiss from a guitar amp or high-hat bleed, without negatively affecting the overall tone of an instrument – an especially useful tool in live settings to get a clear, focused sound.

  • Excels in high-SPL applications
