SKU: AUDTAE2500 Category: Brand:

The ultimate kick-drum mic, the 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.

  • 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 XLRM connectors) for separate control over each element

    Fabulous project studio mic. My normal routine to mic a kick drum had been a condenser inside the drum and a dynamic 12′ to 18 ” from the outside head. The AE2500 does this with one mic (still using 2 inputs for maximum flexibility) and delivers a kick drum sound with punch and depth. It has become my go to kick drum set-up.
