Dual element Bass Drum mic

The Artist Series new kick-drum mic, the ATM250DE dual-element instrument microphone features cardioid condenser and hypercardioid dynamic capsules combined in a single housing. Audio-Technica’s innovative use of two polar patterns is ideal for kick drum: the hypercardioid dynamic element focuses tightly on the aggressive attack of the beater, while the condenser captures the round tonalities of the shell.
The elements are positioned in a perfect phase relationship, something practically impossible to achieve with two separate microphones. Includes a professional isolation clamp to provide secure mounting, versatile positioning and effective dampening of unwanted mechanical noise.


  • Two elements (condenser and dynamic) enclosed in a single housing
  • Neodymium dynamic element provides punch and attack, while the condenser element captures the full audio spectrum
  • Elements are positioned in a perfect phase relationship, something practically unachievable with two separate microphones
  • Perfect for kick drum, guitar amps and instrument use
  • Integral 80 Hz HPF switch and 10 dB pad (condenser element)
  • Versatile mounting options and effective dampening of mechanical noise thanks to included AT8471 isolation clamp
  • Corrosion-resistant contacts from gold-plated XLRM-type connector
  • Rugged, all-metal design and construction for years of trouble-free use
  • Requires dedicated XLR 5 pin Y-lead – included (condenser element requires Phantom Power)

DM Music says
“We love this mic – a great idea and a very versatile piece of kit that really does what it sets out to do! Great for that fat bottom end and click attack for bass drums, especially for double pedalling – Metallica love ’em for just that reason! Just don’t forget you need 2 mic cables for this dual mic!”
