        Comments about Audio-Technica PRO42 - Unidirectional Boundary Microphone:

        The annual challenge: Elementary school Christmas play, with professional results. This microphone met the challenge. Audio was clean sounding with good frequency response, using a flat, hard surface, table with about foot of clear table space. This microphone has excellent sensitivity. I used this microphone within five miles of a 50,000 watt AM station with no RFI problem. I highly recommend this product.
