Avantone ADM Cardioid Dynamic Snare Drum Microphone

Rugged, great sound dynamic cardioid microphone for snare drum miking applications - includes shock mount and padded case

MFR# ADM

Product Description

This is the 2nd generation Avatone ADM snare drum microphone and a great deal of R&D effort has culminated in this rugged, great sounding mic. It represents the very finest snare drum microphone available, both for live clubs & concerts, as well as serious studio recording projects.

The Avantone ADM snare drum mic is voiced to "follow" the familiar sound of industry standard snare mics. However, Avatone engineered a better low end and smoother, extended top end. Although it is called a "snare drum mic", the ADM is a versatile mic that is completely at home on high toms, bongos, congas, guitar cabinets, etc.

Each Avantone ADM snare drum mic is die cast from zinc, with a brass and steel grill assembly. As with all of Avatone mics, there is NO PLASTIC to break! Aesthetically, each mic features an elegant Cabernet Wine-Red finish, accented with polished nickel trim and a black grill assembly. All components are designed and manufactured using the finest materials yielding a very solid feel, superb structural integrity and rugged reliability.

A unique feature of all Avatone drum mics is pair of machined insets on the barrel of the microphone body. These insets allow the O-rings of the SSM shockmount to "lock" the mic into place, which prevents mic shifting and slippage.

The included SSM shock mount is as rugged as you can find and allows for a superb decoupling of the mics from unwanted low-frequency transfer and rumble. This feature, coupled with the use of the PRO-KLAMPS, results in a much tighter, less muddy sound than other brands of drum mics. The O-rings are manufactured using a custom formula. The new world class Ethylene Propylene formula provides enormous resistance to breakage, resistance to surface nicks and remains supple and effective even against dry, hot temperatures. It is resistant to ozone and weathering, which makes it great for use around electronics devices, and maintains its physical properties even in a stretched condition. Each SSM is constructed of heavy-duty die-cast zinc, which is not only incredibly durable but also adds mass, which contributes to vibration dampening/decoupling.

The included PK-1 PRO-KLAMP drum rim mic mount is superb in allowing a confident positioning of the mic while inhibiting the transfer of unwanted vibrations up into the mic with three(!) stages of rubber dampening/decoupling material. This isolation allows for professional results without the need for traditional tripod/boom stands. While it was designed to withstand the rigors of live stage gigging, it is the first drum rim mic mount that will reliably work in a pro studio situation. This makes the engineer's job easier and insures that the mic will stay in place where he positions it. Each PK-1 is built for reliability and is exceptionally rugged, with heavy-duty metal construction.

The package is rounded out with a rugged custom-molded and padded case to safely store and transport your Avantone mic. The Avantone ADM, PK-1 PRO-KLAMP, SSM shockmount, and included carrying case are each inspected, tested, and carefully packed. The Avantone ADM snare drum mic is a truly gorgeous looking and sounding microphone. Its proprietary design, character and performance is made to set a new standard in drum miking. Any studio or venue can proudly & confidently offer the Avantone ADM for professional use during recording or live performance.

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.
Phil T.
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.
Thomas W.
I am a new customer of yours. You guys provided me the absolute best deals in ordering all the equipment to power my brand new recording studio. Your customer service is amazing and i will always deal with you from here on out.
