Of special note, says A-T, is the ATM25/LE, a re-emergence of the classic ATM25 Hypercardioid Dynamic Instrument Microphone. Based on direct input from end-users and dealers, Audio-Technica chose its 50th anniversary to bring back a special edition of the ATM25. They say that the new ATM25/LE is ideal for kick drum, toms and other highly dynamic instruments; handles very high SPL at close range; provides big, warm low-frequency response with excellent presence; offers very full sound on close-up vocals and dialogue; and features a multi-level grille and rugged construction.
