Avantone ATOM Cardioid Dynamic Tom Microphone
Dynamic cardioid tom mic incorporating an oversize capsule that captures a huge low end as well as a penetrating attack resulting in "big sounding drums" - includes shock mount and padded case
The Avantone ATOM is the 2nd generation ATOM tom microphone from Avantone and a great deal of R&D effort has culminated in this rugged, great sounding mic. It represents the very finest tom microphone available, both for live clubs & concerts, as well as serious studio recording projects. The Avantone ATOM tom mic adheres to the overall tonal philosophy of "big sounding drums" and incorporates an oversize capsule that captures a huge low end as well as a penetrating attack. The ATOM is custom voiced to yield a fat, big sound that often requires no EQ at all! Because of the special voicing on the ATOM, it also is fantastic on djembe, large congas, and bass amp cabinets.
Each Avantone ATOM tom mic is die cast from zinc, with a brass and steel grill assembly. As with all Avantone 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 Avantone 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 Avantone ATOM features internal shockmounting on the capsule assembly to aid in preventing the transmission of unwanted "rumble" from physical vibrations.
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 ATOM, PK-1 Pro-Klamp, SSM shockmount, and included carrying case are each inspected, tested, and carefully packed here in New York.
The Avantone ATOM tom 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 ATOM for professional use during recording or live performance.
