The stereo pair of AT5045P Cardioid Condenser Instrument Microphones from Audio-Technica offer the performance of a large-diaphragm, side-address condenser in a convenient, stick-type body. They provide an aluminum and brass enclosure for durability and low reflectivity as well as discrete components for optimized functionality. The capsule assembly and circuitry are mounted as a single block within a floating internal shockmount, decoupling the capsule from the microphone body for vibration isolation. There is a transformer coupled output with low noise and 149 dB SPL handling throughout. Additional features include a cardioid polar pattern, a wide frequency response of 20 Hz to 20 kHz, and a high dynamic range of 141 dB. The microphones can be used for recording percussion, drums, acoustic guitar, other acoustic instruments, strings, and similar applications. The package includes two isolation clamps, two windscreens, and a protective carrying case.
