    AT PRO44

    I bought these for use at a local political forum. The candidates had all been used to either the pass-around SM58 or a couple on stands they had to move to. When they saw these on the table, they were at first nervous and confused that the audience would not hear them. One asked what I would do if he picked it up and spoke directly into it - I told the first response would be to turn it off . . .
    At the end of the forum, the candidates and audience and those who produced the event all agreed that this was the best sound yet.
    There will be a stage show coming up soon where ZI have used 5 mics on stands across the front - this time it will be the AT PRO44s. I anticipate a fine sound with a much cleaner sight line.
    I am happy!

    Almost Perfect !!

    Only reason this awesome mic did not get the 5 stars is because Audio-Technica fails to ship some mounting screws or plate with the mic. Other than that an excellent boundary mic. we use it to pick up the different speakers tones and volume of voices in our church.

    Great item for a great price

    Pleasant surprise

    surprised by this mic. I used 4 of them across a 40 foot stage that I thought I could never use this type of mic on ( very bad speaker placement.) They worked very well. The gain before feedback was great and sensitivity was better than expected. The small footprint made it easy to overlook them from the house,but also easy to step on or kicked out of place ( a little gaff took care of that).

    Works well at the altar

    This mic has fit the bill perfectly for unobtrusive sound reinforcement at the high altar of our church. It replaced a high quality AT handheld condenser that was OK but visually obtrusive among the other elements in the altar setting. While we were shooting for "better looking and good enough," we actually wound up getting zero-profile and a better sound.

    The sound is fundamentally open and smooth, and because of the boundary mic placement (waist high, on-axis, maybe 3' distance) there is no risk of sibilance or proximity effect. It is a real plus for the people at the altar to be able to just forget about microphone technique.

    Final note, before getting this model, we tried (twice!) a slightly cheaper boundary mic from another manufacturer, with bad results. In fact the results were so bad that I suspect they were having a manufacuring problem, so perhaps not a fair comparison. In any event this AT mic has much better fit and finish for not a lot more money.

    I bought them (2) in preparation for miking a choir soon. Right now, I'm using them on a drumset, one on each side of the bass drum, panned in stereo. It works along the same lines of an article I recently read about miking a drumset from below. Of course, there is a third mic on the bass drum.

    Good but not Great

    It was better then attempting to individually wire eighteen individuals but it didn't work as well as I thought it would. To be fair, it may have been how I set them up. Didn't have the range I thought it would.
