Audio-Technica is one of the most respected designers and manufacturers of microphones with its products being used everywhere from the U.S House of Representatives to the Olympics to the Grammy Awards. Established in 1962 by Hideo Matsushita in Japan, Audio-Technica is a worldwide collection of companies designing and distributing superb quality equipment for live concerts, recording studios, corporate use, broadcasts, and more. The Audio-Technica microphones include models ranging from handheld, instrument, ribbon, shotgun, stereo, and gooseneck. The Woodwind and Brasswind is proud to retail Audio-Technica microphones for recording, live performance, and percussion along with numerous microphone accessories and microphone packages.
Among the popular microphones from Audio-Technica is the AT897 Line Gradient Shotgun Condenser Microphone. This microphone mounts onto a DV camcorder to acquire sound for video production and broadcast. Its short design ensures that it stays out of the shot while it provides excellent off-axis rejection of sound coming from the sides and rear of the microphone. The ATM510 Cardioid Dynamic Vocal Mic is wonderful for projecting vocal performances. With its durable construction and internal shock mounting, this microphone is well-suited for the road. Other best sellers include the Pro70 Cardioid Condensor Lavalier which brilliantly records vocals and acoustic guitar and the Artist Elite AE5100 Microphone for overheads, percussion, strings, and guitars. The AT808G Gooseneck Subcardioid Dynamic Console Microphone is a quality talk-back microphone with unlimited flexibility due to its gooseneck design. For a minimally visible microphone that can be conveniently positioned on podiums and conference tables, the Pro44 Propoint Cardioid Condenser Boundary Microphone is a perfect choice.
For live performances, studio recordings, corporate, and personal use, Audio-Technica microphones are a superior option for any musician.
