The ultimate kick drum mic, Artist Elite AE2500 dual element microphone features both condenser and dynamic capsules in a perfect phase relationship, all in one housing. With a provided splitter cable, the separate elements can be control on different channels with their own 3 pin XLR connectors, allowing for a precise sound balance. The AE2500 is presented in a rugged durable casing, and is provided with a stand clamp offering shock protection, secure mounting and easy positioning. The AE2500 is equally at home on the road and in the studio
