Hi kids. Uncle Dogg purchased a couple of used mics last night and I want to tell you about them and ask if anyone else has used this model or even seen one.....These are Audio Technica ATM5R's. A small handheld style condenser, an SDC for sure, with a pop screen and a mini xlr connector. I had heard about these several years ago and was always curious since the report I got was sterling. A couple came up for sale on the local CL and I snapped em up for a good price. After our gig last night (500th show for the band !!!) I got home and plugged em in to the board in the studio. I'm excited. Can you tell? I may use these as vocal mics in the studio and live. They are thick and rich, they have a real rear rejection (smc) in short the sound is BIG. I couldnt find ANY pdf or even a mention of them on the AT site even in the discontinued section. I couldnt get them to break up at all. Think SM58 with the tone of a KSM44. AT mics are, as always, as surprising as they are great.
