Brilliant on Toms

By Franklin

from Round Rock, TX

Comments about Audio-Technica AE3000 Instrument Condenser Microphone:

I've been using the AE3000 to close mic all of my toms, from smaller rack to to large floor toms, and I love the sound. These things handle the SPLs well and provide great sound which requires very little EQ at the board to get the perfect tone. With a good gate setup properly, the sound is amazing. Love them.
