Make Your Toms Heard with This Mic 3-pack
Guess what? Your toms are getting lost in a live mix. The floor tom patterns, the machine-gun fills — all of it. We hate to be the ones to break it to you, but it's time you knew. The good news is that miking your toms is easy and affordable with the Audio-Technica ATM230 tom microphone 3-pack. Each of these all-metal tom mics features a hypercardioid pickup pattern to reject cymbal bleed and loud stage amps, delivering both the fast transients and the complex harmonic development of your toms straight to your listener's ears. What Sweetwater loves about these mics are the integrated mounts, which pivot into position all on their own. The Audio-Technica ATM230 3-pack includes three rim clips for clean, stand-less operation.
Specially tailored for rack and floor toms
It's not often that toms get this sort of attention from mic makers. Which is a shame, because they're every bit as complex as kicks, snares, and other specific drums. The woody attack. The warm sustain. They're instruments that require special equipment, especially onstage. Invest in a set of Audio-Technica ATM230s and take comfort knowing your toms are in the hands of one of the industry's leading drum microphone manufacturers.
All-metal build takes a beating
Durability is where the rubber meets the road for a drum microphone. Because let's face it — some of us drummers aren't exactly known for our grace and accuracy behind the kit. The all-metal construction of the Audio-Technica ATM230 is built to stand up to the occasional stick strike.
Works well for any percussion instrument
The same qualities that make the ATM230 an excellent tom microphone —the rare earth element's massive lows, excellent transient response, and high SPL handling with high output — make it a fine choice for any number of percussion instruments. Sweetwater threw this mic at snare drum, conga, and cajon, and we were pleased with the results. If it's loud, on a stage, and can be struck with a drumstick, the Audio-Technica ATM230 dynamic drum microphone can capture it.
