Audio-Technica unveils at AES 2014 in Los Angeles a brand new hand built large diaphragm condenser microphone for instrument.

Available per unit or pair, the new AT5045 features a circuit that, according to Audio-Technica, is reduced to its essentials for an ultra-compact Stick-type format and a wide dynamic range. It can be used to capture percussions, overheads, acoustic guitars, strings, and more. Audio-Technica also adds that the AT5045 uses the largest diaphragm AT can currently offer.

A special shockmount is also available to offer isolation, dampening of unwanted mechanical noises and easy positioning.
