Audio-Technica ATM230 overview

  • 1Description

The Audio-Technica ATM230 is a hypercardioid dynamic instrument microphone made for capturing drums and percussion. The mic's proprietary capsule is designed to excel in high-SPL applications, delivering full, well-rounded audio with accurate low-end reproduction.

The hypercardioid polar pattern reduces pickup of sounds from the sides and rear, improving isolation of the desired sound source. It also sports a low-profile design which allows for a wide variety of placements. The ATM230 is ideally suited for miking toms, snares, and other percussion instruments.

  • Hypercardioid polar pattern reduces pickup of sounds from the sides and rear, improving isolation of desired sound source

  • Low-profile design permits versatile placement around drum kit
  • Rare earth magnet for improved output and transient response

    Audio-Technica ATM230 reviews

    ATM230 Hypercardioid Dynamic Instrument Microphone is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Tom Microphone. I've been using Sennheiser 421's and CAD M179's on my toms for years and I thought I'd give the ATM230 a try. The ATM230 has a finished sound and it sits in a drum mix better than anything I've used in the studio. The ATM230 has really nice isolation due to its hyper-cardioid design unlike the 421 has bleed that sounds like trashcan lids. I ended up purchasing a 3-pack so now I have 4 of them. I couldn't be happier. Not only am I an engineer, I am also a drum builder and to hear the toms with these mics makes it all worth it.
