The Audio-Technica ATM350 Cardioid Condenser Clip-On Microphone is a fixed-charge clip-on condenser microphone with a cardioid polar pattern. It is designed for use in professional live-sound and studio applications. When used with the included instrument mount, it provides accurate, consistent pickup of trumpet and saxophone and many other musical instruments. When used with the included violin mount, it provides outstanding pickup of violin and other stringed instruments.
The microphone requires 11V to 52V phantom power for operation. The cardioid polar pattern of the microphone is more sensitive to sound originating directly in front of the element, making it useful for controlling feedback and reducing pickup of unwanted sounds. The microphone includes a 4m (13.1') permanently attached miniature cable. Its free end connects to the provided AT8542 power module via a TA3F-type connector.
The output of the power module is a 3-pin XLRMtype connector. A switch in the power module permits choice of flat response or low frequency roll-off (via integral 80 Hz high-pass filter) to help control undesired ambient noise. The microphone is enclosed in a rugged housing with a low-reflectance black finish.
