Audio-Technica AE2300 Cardioid Dynamic Instrument Microphone


The Audio-Technica AE2300 is a cardioid instrument microphone that features a proprietary double-dome diaphragm construction, giving it high-frequency and transient response that exceeds typical dynamic microphones. With a rugged, low-profile design and the ability to handle high SPLs, the AE2300 is a versatile performer, able to accurately capture sound from guitar amps, brass and woodwinds, and drums and percussion instruments with equal clarity and precision. The double-dome diaphragm construction allows the AE2300 to maintain directionality across the entire frequency range, while introducing only the slightest off-axis coloration (frequency response is nearly identical at 0, 90 and 180°) for 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 hi-hat bleed into the snare, without negatively affecting the overall tone of an instrument. This mic is an especially useful tool in live settings to get a clear, focused sound.
