Audio-Technica AE3000 Side-Address Cardioid Condenser Mic

Large-diaphragm side-address cardioid condense microphone offering exceptional sound performance on acoustic instruments

MFR# AE3000

Product Description

The Audio-Technica AE3000 is a cardioid electret microphone offering exceptional sound performance on acoustic instruments. Designed to work at high sound pressure levels, the AE3000 proves indispensable for all percussive instruments. Its large diaphragm element excels with acoustic guitars, guitar amps, toms, overheads, percussion, snare, timpani and other acoustic instruments.

The large-diaphragm microphone combined with an "open" head structure provides high accuracy and exceptional sound clarity.

A microphone that fits comfortably into the palm of your hand; discretion and ergonomics allow optimal positioning of the element relative to the sound source.

The integrated low-cut filter allows for the easy switching of flat frequency response to attenuate the bass. The 10 dB attenuator reduces microphone sensitivity, whilst increasing the sound pressure level, thus increasing the versatility of the AE3000.

The AE3000 is equipped with a filter that suppresses frequencies below 80 Hz, with a slope of 12 dB/octave.

The microphone's large capsule is protected by a tapered grille, allowing you to slide the AE3000 closer to capture instruments.

The AT8471 isolation clamp is included to ensure secure mounting, versatile positioning and to mitigate any unwanted mechanical noise. The AE3000 also comes with a soft protective pouch for easy storage and transport.

FEATURES:

  • Compact, discreet, easy to position microphone
  • Small (at just 11.5 cm), reaching up to 158 dB SPL with the pad
  • 10 dB and 138 dB dynamic low-cut filter at a featherweight 170 g
  • Ideal for acoustic guitar amp, toms, snare, brass and overheads
  • Low-profile side-address design with tapered grille allows optimal positioning of element vis-à-vis sound source
  • Robust design for enduring dependability on the road
  • 80 Hz high Pass Filter and 10 dB pad
  • Product designed and manufactured in Japan, guaranteed for 15 years

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.

The speed of delivery exceeded my expectations! I was VERY pleased that my shipment arrived in time for a scheduled vocal tracking session. The packing insured that my order arrived safely. And the sales staff responded quickly to questions regarding the product.

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.
Michael D.
From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
