New version of ATM25

If you loved the ATM25 mic, I believe this is the same capsule, with a very slight upper mid bump...fantastic microphone for toms. They special ordered a 3 pack for me. I already owned two ATM25s and wanted a few more, and since ATM25s are twice the price (used) most of the time, I took the gamble on trying these out, and I was blown away. It's basically the same mic, same great low end response, takes EQ just as well...I usually have to EQ the ATM25 anyway, so the slight upper mid bump actually makes me have to EQ it slightly less.
