Audio-Technica AE3000 Cardioid Condenser Microphone

Known for its accurate, open sound, this side-address large-diaphragm condenser handles up to 148 dB SPL -- great on guitar cabs, drum overheads, and more.

The AE3000 excels in high-SPL applications such as guitar cabinets, toms, snare, timpani and overheads. A large-diaphragm capsule combines with the open architecture of the headcase to provide an extremely accurate and open sound.
