Audio-Technica ATM25
The Audio-Technica ATM25 is a dynamic microphone that is suitable for use in the recording studio or on the stage. I've only used it for recording, but it would certainly work either way. This mic is not to be confused with the Audio-Technica Pro 25, which looks similar but is definitely a different mic on the inside, as this one sounds a lot better. It's got a hyper cardioid polar pick up pattern, making it great for recording things up close like drums or an amplifier cabinet. It will pick up frequencies between 30 Hz and 15 kHz, which isn't ideal but will work fine for picking up lower and mid range sounds.


In my time using the Audio-Technica ATM25, I've been very pleased with it. It's a versatile microphone with flexibility when it comes to recording drums. I've used it for kick drum, tom drums, and snare drum, as well as for both an electric guitar and a bass guitar cabinet. I liked the mic best for recording bass guitar as well as kick drum. It didn't do it for me on snare drum, as I tried it both on the top and the bottom. However, it sounded great on the inside of the kick drum and right up on the grill for bass guitar. I guess it must have a nice low end response since the applications that I liked it best for were bass instruments. I would bet that the ATM25 would work very well for most applications in a live setting as well just by judging from it's make up. I haven't personally tried it for any live applications since I don't do live sound. The price isn't too expensive, but even at this price there are some other mics I'd go for instead. It really just depends on what you're looking to record. The ATM25 has more versatility than something like an AKG D112, but if you're just looking for something to record bass sounds with, I'd got with the D112. It depends on what you want to do with it, but the Audio-Technica ATM25 definitely offers up a good amount.

Kick-drum mic


I do not personally know this microphone, but the sound magazine in July 2004 in a complete test presents it as one of the best "the most pro and more neutral" ...

Hypercardioid dynamic microphone for bass drum


Just good, its a super super Polivalente for a small footprint ... a real pleasure
I have a bass drum mic Sennheiser Evolution and this one I recently, and I'm not disappointed. Both in live recording, this little bazard miracles. It's a slightly more powerful than the senn, who is more rounded. it is two devices in the same range but I prefer the ATM to me seems more precision ...

Audio-Technica ATM25
A micro ultra sturdy and very heavy for the recovery of sources.
Type dynamic cash enormously.
I 5, I qussi an AKG D112: for the kick, there's no photo: ATM25, its very modern and percussive, accurate too. The D112 still finished on the floor tom, for there I find the Audio Technica is too "hard". The others are used for the snare and toms used in home studio.
I did some tests on electrical Gratt's clean, and an acoustic guitar, it's the modern art poster, but unless you find a color pariculière, he excels in the resumption of percussive elements.


I the boards since I started, so about 3 years. It is indestructible as micro, but to put it on a clip ... IEA must tighten the clamp if the weight of the mic is down illico ... It has a strong link also on an axis.
Value for money monster. There's not to say.
I would do this choice with his eyes closed, it's a studio that introduced me, and I congratulate them! I have not tried much, because I bought a "pack" of eight microphones in the studio I'm talking about even before a sound card other than integrated into the motherboard ...
