Product Description

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 line of high-performance microphones. Each model is designed to extend the performance of a sound system, not limit it. Introducing the standard in live audio: Artist Elite.

Features:

- The ultimate vocal performance instrument
- Pristine sound quality demanded by the most discriminating microphone user
- Large-diaphragm element and true condenser design
- Superior anti-shock engineering ensures low handling noise and quiet performance
- Excellent protection against plosives and sibilance without compromising high-frequency clarity
- Robust design for enduring dependability on the road
- Integral 80 Hz HPF switch and 10 dB pad
- Includes AT8470 Quiet-Flex stand clamp

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (15 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful. "Give this a long look before buying any other high-end stage mic"
Sound: I think this is the best stage mic you can get. Better than Shure Beta 87A, Better than AKG D3900 and Better than Sennheiser E865 and about as nice as Neumann KMS105 for a lot less. I have used them all, and I'll stay with this one. Feature: Includes mic clip. Useful switches. Often you'll need to engage the low end roll-off in live applications. Quality: Feels rugged and durable to me. I haven't dropped it yet Value: Again, I like it better than Neumann KMS105, and my AE5400 cost a lot less. The Wow Factor: Looks fantastic
Style of Music: Acoustic rock/alternative

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful. "Great mic, great deal, great service."
Overall: The AE5400 is exactly what I was looking for: a hi quality, reliable and durable stage mic. I've been using a Shure Beta 87a for two years and really digging that, but just wanted to try to step up a notch. The AE5400 does it. Full-body sound, crisp high's, lots of detail (I sing jazz and pop for grown-ups), and it just feels nice and solid when handling. I've used it on only one gig so far, but at first blush, it's a total winner. A colleague sat in on my gig (awesome vocalist!) and he sounded amazing on this mic too. ZZounds held to their "beat any price" claim and gave me a screaming deal, plus, the shipping was super fast. ZZounds is my new favorite source!
Style of Music: Jazz, pop-for-grownups, cabaret

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.
