Audio-Technica AE6100 Artist Elite Mic

The Audio-Technica Artist Elite AE6100 hypercardioid dynamic vocal microphone delivers clean articulation, fast transients and high-output, assertive sound for the uncompromising vocalist. With a polar pattern tailored for outstanding on-axis response, the microphone offers maximum feedback rejection and superior anti-shock engineering for low handling noise. For ultimate protection against vocal plosives, the mic's hardened-steel outer grille is lined with fine steel mesh and a layer of open-cell foam. A foam disk positioned on top of the element assembly provides the final layer of "pop" protection.

Audio-Technica's Artist Elite Series

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.

Features:

- Assertive sound for the uncompromising vocalist
- Great presence with excellent monitor cut
- High output, fast transients, and clean articulation
- Maximum feedback rejection
- Superior anti-shock engineering for low handling noise

Customer Reviews
5 out of 5 (6 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful. "King of Handheld Dynamics"
Sound: I've owned this mic for about three years. During that time I've performed in every situation other than an arena. That includes the bars with a useless sound guy, the clubs with an excellent sound guy, the outdoor festival with no sound guy at all, the theaters with perfect acoustics and pristine sound system, and of course the cramped practice space. I've used it a lot. This mic is best performing dynamic I've used. Having used the Shure SM58 and Beta 58a, Electrovoice n/d 767, Audix OM2 and OM5, and the Sennheiser e835, I'd say I have a pretty good basis for comparison. The 6100 rejects feedback as well or better than any of these. The transients cut straight through, and the clarity is unrivaled. I sang with a super loud heavy progessive/metal band. Whisper to scream, the 6100 shines. Feature: Superb clarity, incredible feedback rejection. Oh, and it handles plosives amazingly well. Ease of Use: Hypercardioids have a slightly higher learning curve. You have to keep on them tightly, or else you're lost. That said, the 6100 reacts amazingly well to "playing the mic." That's something all singers should do with their mic. Spend some time with it, develop a relationship with it and you won't be disappointed. Quality: Let's bring up the really important point -- How durable is this thing? I've thrown it, I've dropped it. It's lived through fog filled venues, dusty outdoors festivals, smoke filled rehearsal spaces... Not a scratch, and it still sounds incredible. Buy this mic. Value: Best gear investment I've made as a singer. Manufacturer Support: Never needed to talk to them. I love Audio Technica. I also own an AT4050. Incredible mics. The Wow Factor: This thing stands out from the crowd. Not the "golfball on a stick" look we've seen from Shure, or the blacker than black from Audix. Has a look and feel all it's own. I like that the grip isn't just rounded. It makes for a better hold. Overall: I won't replace this mic ever. It won't need to be replaced. I will however purchase the ae5400, but as an additional color for my vocal spectrum, not a replacement or upgrade.
Style of Music: Metal, electronic, heavyyyyyy

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.
