Audio-Technica introduces new Artist Series

Audio-Technica announced its next generation of the classic Artist Series live-sound microphones at summer Namm show 2006. The new Artist Series will hit Europe at Plasa 2006, London, adding innovative microphones to the line, while upgrading classic models for a comprehensive selection of vocal, instrument and drum mics.
For the singer, the Artist Series vocal microphones are acknowledged for intelligibility, detailed reproduction and noise suppression. The new versions offer broad frequency response and extremely low handling noise in an attractive, durable design. Handheld vocal models include the ATM710 cardioid condenser, ATM610 hypercardioid dynamic and ATM410 cardioid dynamic.
The Artist Series includes new models optimized specifically for instruments. Tailored for clear, full-range reproduction of acoustic and amplified instruments, the Artist Series instrument microphones are designed for natural audio reproduction, and feature fast transient response, low distortion/noise, and rugged, durable construction. These mics offer clear, well-balanced response, even at high SPLs. The Artist Series instrument microphones include the ATM650 hypercardioid dynamic and ATM450 cardioid condenser along with a clip-on model, the ATM350 cardioid condenser.
The ATM450 is an innovative side-address stick design with many placement options and minimal obstructions.
In addition, a wide range of convenient accessories is supplied with the microphones. These include Audio-Technica’s innovative new violin mount and versatile UniMount flexible gooseneck mount (both supplied with the ATM350), and a professional isolation clamp that provides versatile positioning and effective dampening of unwanted mechanical noise (included with the ATM250, ATM250DE and ATM450).
For the drums, Audio-Technica built on the legacy of its legendary AE2500, and introduced the new ATM250DE, a dual-element kick-drum mic that combines two perfectly positioned capsules — a cardioid condenser and hypercardioid dynamic — in a single housing. The ATM250DE is also recommended for toms, guitar and bass cabinets as well as brass and upright bass.
The ATM250 hypercardioid dynamic is suitable for high SPL applications including kick drum, toms, bass, brass and upright bass, offering rich, warm low-frequency response.
