AUDIO TECHNICA HANGING MICROPHONES
Designed for suspension over choirs, instrumental groups and theatre stages, these condenser designs have steel-wire hangers, which attach to the cable, when suspended from above, and position the microphone head away from the vertical. All have a high maximum sound level capability, useful if directly above an orchestra.
With robust construction and unobtrusive appearance, this is a wide-range condenser microphone with a cardioid (unidirectional) polar pattern. It was designed for high-quality sound reinforcement and other demanding sound pickup applications. A 7.6 metre length of 2.6mm diameter cable is permanently attached to the microphone head, terminated with a 3-pin male XLR connector. Available in black or white. The output is low impedance, balanced. Requires 9V to 52V DC phantom power. Maximum input: 134dB SPL. Response: 70Hz-16kHz, sensitivity 14.1mV/Pa. Impedance: 100ohms, balanced. Dimensions: 57mm head length; 12mm head diameter.
Included accessories: Foam windscreen, steel hanger
Optional accessories: AT8146 windshield, AT8146WH windshield
This is also a cardioid, condenser design, but with a wider frequency response, it is also suitable for recording work, as well as sound reinforcement. A 7.6 metre cable, 3.2mm in diameter, is attached permanently to the microphone. This terminates with a miniature XLR connector which connects to the included AT8531 power module, which has a switch to introduce a low-frequency roll-off, 80Hz, 18dB/octave, to reduce unwanted low-frequency sounds without affecting voice quality. The module has an XLR3-M balanced output connector and operates with a 1.5V AA battery (1200 hours, alkaline) or 11-52V phantom power. The capsule is interchangeable; hypercardioid, omnidirectional and UniLine line cardioid polar patterns are available - contact Sales. Available in black or white. Maximum input: 133dB SPL. Response: 30Hz-20kHz, sensitivity 7.9mV/Pa. Impedance: 200ohms, balanced. Dimensions: 34mm head length; 12.2mm head diameter.
Included accessories: AT8153 two-stage foam windscreen, AT8451 steel hanger, AT8531 power module, AT8438 5/8 inch stand adapter, battery.
