Audio-Technica has introduced its new Artist Elite AE2300 Dynamic Cardioid Instrument Microphone. They say that the AE2300 features their proprietary double-dome diaphragm construction, giving it high-frequency and transient response that far exceeds typical dynamic microphones.

With its rugged, brass metal construction and low-profile design (able to be placed unobtrusively in a variety of applications) and the ability to handle high SPLs, A-T believes that the AE2300 is a versatile performer, able to capture sound from guitar amps, brass and woodwinds, drums and percussion instruments with clarity and precision.

A-T says that the double-dome diaphragm construction allows the AE2300 to maintain directionality across the entire frequency range, with little off-axis coloration (frequency response is nearly identical at 0°, 90° and 180°) for excellent phase cohesion in multiple-mic setups. The microphone is also equipped with a switchable low-pass filter that cuts out harsh, high-frequency noise, such as hiss from a guitar amp or high-hat bleed, without negatively affecting the overall tone of an instrument, which A-T believes to be an especially useful tool in live settings to get a clear, focused sound.
