Audio-Technica AE3300 Artist Elite Mic

With pristine audio quality, ultra-low handling noise, and high-frequency clarity, the Audio-Technica AE3300 microphone gives voice to the subtleties of vocal performance. This cardioid condenser vocal microphone features the condenser element used in the legendary AT4033 and proven in the world's finest recording studios. The hardened-steel outer grille is lined with fine steel mesh and a layer of open-cell foam for ultimate protection against vocal plosives without compromising high-frequency clarity. Its superior anti-shock engineering ensures low handling noise and quiet performance.

The Artist Elite Series is the most superb sonic design for the most elite venues. Recent advances in the quality and sophistication of professional live-sound systems have been nothing short of revolutionary. Tours, clubs, broadcast events, corporate facilities and worship venues sound better than ever, utilizing better system design and better components in the audio chain. That's why Audio-Technica has been partnering with industry professionals on the front line of this revolution - the top touring companies, award show designers, FOH and monitor engineers, audio consultants and artists - to learn what it takes to make the best-sounding, most reliable and consistent microphones for the live-sound industry. They listened carefully. Then they applied this knowledge to the creation of a new line of high-performance microphones. Each model is designed to extend the performance of a sound system, not limit it. Introducing the new standard in live audio: Artist Elite.

- Exceptional performance for exceptional performers

Customer Reviews
5 out of 5 (3 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful. "A well made, versatile and elegant microphone for the Vocalist that likes to take their studio sound to the gig."
Sound: I would describe the sound as fairly neutral, smooth and clear with a hint of vintage about it. It is a large capsule mic, so it has that larger dimension to its sound. It also responds very well to a touch of EQ in the studio environment. It has a small rise around 3kz and a bit of a spike around the 10kz spot for cutting through on stage but it doesn't come across as fizzy like the chinese equivalents at all. Feature: This AE3300 is a rare piece of gear because it is a large diphragm mic set up for stage vocals. You won't find many reviews of this mic so I thought I'd throw one out into the net. This has the element from the well respected mic the AT4033, a mic I've never used but have heard good things about. It also has a 10dB pad and 12dB rollof at 80hz, which makes it very versatile and similar to many studio mics for flexibility. Ease of Use: This mic really suits my voice so I have given it centre stage in my home studio. Because it is shaped like a 58 style of mic .... it's really easy to position and fit into your space. It also means I can take my studio sound out with me to gigs when I perform. Quality: Audio Technica are solid and reliable. I have five of their mics and they always feel like they're going to outlive you. Value: Very good value and if it suits your type of voice it is a "Desert Island" mic for its versatility. Manufacturer Support: Never had a problem with any of AT's gear. The Wow Factor: This mic is very elegant and has a classy, solid appearance. Overall: If it got lost I would look for another AT mic. Either this one or the AE5400 or AT4054. All LDCs with stage credentials.
Style of Music: Jazz/Blues/Acoustic
