The ultimate kick-drum mic, the Audio Technica Artist Elite AE2500 dual-element instrument microphone features cardioid condenser and dynamic capsules combined in one housing. The dynamic element in the AE2500 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 elements side-entry ports, exercising precise control over the time at which off-axis signals arrive at the diaphragm. The AE2500's condenser diaphragm is optimally tensioned and aged for long-term consistency and stability. The Audio Technica AE2500 was used to mic bass cabinets at the Rock N Roll Hall of Fame Induction ceremony!
