Product Description

The Alesis AM2 is a cardioid condenser microphone kit with two AM2 microphones, windscreens, clips, a padded hard case, and an XY-stereo mount.

Alesis AM2 microphones are low profile, miniature cardioid condensers with switchable -10dB attenuation and a high-pass filter. These XLR mics capture all of the nuance and subtlety that separate good recordings from great ones. With a clean FET amplifier and a transformer-less output stage, AM2 microphones offer low self-noise, high-resolution audio capture. Their small-diaphragm condenser capsules offer excellent pickup of the "air" that characterizes high-quality small-diaphragm condensers.

AM2 microphones can be used very close to a sound-source without the sound becoming harsh. The switchable high-pass filter reduces interferences through subsonic and low frequencies remarkably and compensates for proximity effect. The attenuation switch enables the microphone to handle high sound pressure levels without distortion.

The AM2 Stereo Set includes a hard, padded case for transporting the kit from studio to stage, from field-recording to production work. An included double stereo stand mount enables secure placement on any standard microphone stand.

For high-fidelity, high-resolution, high-definition recording, the AM2 Stereo Set tears down the wall separating quality and price.

Features:

- Matched stereo pair of XLR microphones
- Excellent clarity, sensitivity, and detail
- Attenuation (pad) switch enables usage in high-SPL settings
- Low frequency roll-off compensates for proximity effect in close-miking applications
- Hard, padded case and XY-stereo mount included
- NOTE: Desktop mic stand not included.

Includes:
- Two matched AM2 microphones
- Two mic clips
- Two windscreens
- XY-stereo mount
- Hard, padded case

Customer Reviews
5 out of 5 (1 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Can't be beat these mics for the price!!"
Sound: Very transparent and natural sounding for recording acoustic guitar. These mics capture subtle sounds that other mics I've used don't. Feature: The high-pass and dB attenuation switches work as advertised. Turning on the high-pass allows close mic'ing without getting "boomy" bass. The attenuation switch enables the mics to be used to capture very loud sources like drums and guitar amps. Ease of Use: Plug it in and put it on a mic stand...that's all there is to it. Quality: For the price I expected these mics to have cheap plastic bodies, but they are metal and feel very solid and robust. Value: There is no doubt that these mics are as good as mics that cost up to 10X what I paid for them. That makes these mics an exceptionally great value! Manufacturer Support: No problems with the mics, so I have not contacted the manufacturer. The Wow Factor: They are actually pretty cool looking! They are small and just look like more expensive mics. Overall: I've recorded with a lot of different mics over the years and these have got to be the best value I've found. The AM2 mics live up to their advertised performance and then some. They are low noise and very natural sounding. I bought them on a whim, but I am so pleased with their sound that I will be packing up some of the other mics I have been recording with....yes, the AM2 s are THAT good!
Style of Music: Folk, acoustic, folk-rock and country

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
