The ultimate kick-drum mic, the 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. This is a fantastic kick-drum mic!

*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

*Integral 80 Hz HPF switch and 10 dB pad on condenser element

*Includes isolation clamp for shock protection, secure mounting and easy positioning

*Includes a 16.5' (5 m) cable (5-pin XLRF to two standard 3-pin XLRM connectors) for separate control over each element
