Stow, OH (March 15, 2019)—Audio-Technica has created a pair of new mounts for the ATM350a cardioid condenser instrument microphone—the AT8491S surface mount and the AT8491G guitar mount.
Each of the mounts is being offered in three ways—as a full system (ATM350a mic, mount and gooseneck), as a mount only and as a bundle comprised of the mount and gooseneck only.
The ATM350a itself is intended for use with woodwinds, strings, brass, percussion, drums and piano, and is capable of handling 159 dB max SPL. It features a cardioid polar pattern that reduces side and rear pickup and protects against feedback. The mic’s in-line power module incorporates a switchable 80 Hz hi-pass filter to help control ambient noise.
With that in mind, the new AT8491S surface mount is designed for using the ATM350a to capture accordions and other instruments. The notched mount can be attached permanently using the accordion’s grille screw and the included adhesive silicon pad, or it can be attached temporarily using included 3M Dual Lock pads. A transparent protective film is also included to prevent damage to the instrument’s finish.
Meanwhile, the AT8491G guitar mount features a thumbscrew-adjustable clamp with non-marking pads that attaches to guitars and other stringed instruments with body depths of 90-135 mm.
