Multipurpose condenser mic with studio-quality sound

Whether used as a choir mic or for percussion, guitar, strings, or other acoustic instruments, your music's energy deserves the uncompromising sound quality that the Audio-Technica AE5100 microphone delivers - even more affordably than you'd expect! The AE5100 has a large-diaphragm capsule for accurate, natural response; yet its robust, low-profile design facilitates innovative placement and outstanding performance-to-size ratio. It provides uncompromising sound quality for instruments and has the most essential ingredients for quality live sound in a choir microphone. It works great for recording too.

Audio-Technica AE5100 Features:

  • Large-diaphragm capsule
  • Low-profile design
  • Cardioid polar pattern (less sound from sides & rear; improved isolation)
  • Robust design for enduring dependability on the road
  • Isolation clamp for shock protection, secure mounting, & easy positioning
  • Integral 80 Hz HPF switch & 10 dB pad
Applications for the Audio-Technica Artist Elite AE5100 Microphone
  • Choir Mic
    • Mount mics on tall boom stands in front of your choir. This works best with a stage riser. Use 3 or 4 AE5100 for a choir of 12 to 24 members. See more about miking a choir here.
  • Acoustic Guitar Mic
    • Mount 1 AE5100 on a boom stand, position at the 12th fret, and aim back toward the sound hole. You may need an equalizer to remove low mid frequencies to taste and watch gain if using live.
  • Drum Overhead Mics
    • Mount 2 AE5100 mics on boom stands in front of the drum set. Aim down toward the left and right front of the kit. Try to get as high above the kit as possible to even out the different distances of the cymbals, toms, and snare that will end up in the overheads. Remember, overhead mics are the most critical in the mix if used correctly.
