Brand New ConditionMore InfoThis product is in the box as received from the manufacturer and comes with the original warranty.

  • Revolutionary dual-element design represents a ground-breaking transducer achievement; Two elements (condenser and dynamic) are enclosed in a single housing
  • Dynamic element delivers the aggressive attack of the beater while the condenser captures the round tonalities of the shell
  • Elements are positioned in a perfect phase relationship, something practically unachievable with two separate microphones
  • Robust design for enduring dependability on the road
  • Integral 80 Hz HPF switch and 10 dB pad on condenser element

The ultimate kick-drum mic, the Artist Elite AE2500 dual-element instrument microphone features cardioid condenser and dynamic capsules combined in one housing. The dynamic element delivers the aggressive attack of the beater; the condenser captures the round tonalities of the shell. Two layers of resistive mesh form multiple densities over the dynamic element’s side-entry ports, exercising precise control over the time at which off-axis signals arrive at the diaphragm. The condenser diaphragm is optimally tensioned and aged for long-term consistency and stability.
