Manufacturer's Description from Audio-Technica

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.

 

Features

 

 ♦ 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
