    great sounding mic

    ADK Microphones A51 / A51sPublished on 10/24/11 at 21:59
    I've been seriously recording music for the last 7 years and messing around with recording on old 4 tracks for many years before that. I purchased a pair of ADK Microphones to use on snare since I've read so many times that the ADK Microphones was used to record snare on so many classic albums. Somehow, against all odds, I've managed to never use a this mic in my lifetime. I used SM58's for live vocals many times (I never cared for the muddiness) and the beta58 which was not a match for my vocals at all. Because of these experiences, I never really wanted to buy ADK microphones. The only other ADK mic that I own is an B44 which is an absolutely fantastic mic in every regard.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I hooked it up to a very clear, neutral, and natural pre (focusrite isa) so I could just hear the response of the mic. I tried some vocals first and wow! I recognized the classic sound immediately from old albums. The ADK A51 rolls off the unusable lows but retains warmth, it has an unbelievably SMOOTH and musical midrange, and the highs are smooth and present without making your ears feel like they are being stabbed by large daggers (like every cheap Chinese condenser I've ever heard). Honestly, the ADK A51 fits my vocals better than the majority of the far more expensive mics that I own. I'm not knocking Neumann because they obviously make fantastic microphones, but I'd rather use the ADK A51 for vocals than my TLM103. Does it matter that the specs on the ADK A51 are less impressive the TLM103, nope. it only matters how the mic handles the task that you throw at it. The ADK A51 chops off more lows and highs, but it sure does sound good doing it. Next I grabbed an old Gibson Southern Jumbo acoustic and started strumming away. The mic was 12 to 18 inches away and pointed in the vicinity of the 12th fret again, I immediately recognized this sound from classic albums. Great Mic at a great price check out the ADK A51.

    The 51-A S and A 51 are two condenser microphones cardioid directivity was very versatile (overheads, various acoustic instruments, ways, we'll have to envy to all ...).

    The 51-S is the same as the 51 plus pad (the practice of sound pressure from source) and a high pass filter (these two characteristics make it more ployvalent that his little brother)

    OVERALL OPINION

    I had the opportunity to listen several times during the last year for comparisons of microphones for studio and balances and this mic is simply amazing ... Finally, we recognize what we want sound / recording ... So I bought 2 months ago (and this is just the beginning)

    That a real microphone in a range of competitive prices.
    The curve of frequency response of this microphone is very good.
    The only downside (which explains the low price), the production made in china ... but hardly more than a SM58 (I saw was $ 220 with shipping to USA-attention to customs fees, however), it was a real micro "comp" (which will this-not say the same utility).

    But happiness ...

    Value for money unbeatable ... It deserves a 10 out of 10.
