Comments about Audio-Technica ATM650 Hypercardioid Dynamic Instrument Microphone:

When I opened the box I saw an absolutely gorgeous microphone... I HAD to have it. I took home my new toy and have absolutely LOVED it ever since. I will be buying more of these to replace my 57's and my i5's.When compared to a Shure SM57, this mic has a tighter and more controlled low end, with the presence peak situated higher up, around 2-4k. This mic is absolutely wonderful, EVERYTHING I've stuck it on has sounded fantastic, and much prefer this mic to the Audix i5 and the Shure SM57 on everything I've tried. This is THE best snare mic I've used, and sounds phenomenal on guitar cabs, toms, sax/horns/whatever... it's a workhorse.I love to collect mics and I LOVE this mic. This is my new go-to mic.

Comments about Audio-Technica ATM650 Hypercardioid Dynamic Instrument Microphone:

I was able to get this mic from a local store for quite cheap.I figured what the hey I can always sell it o the Bay if I don't like it.Well my frineds I have to say it's a fantastic Guitar mic. Very true to your actual sound. Very little coloration, if anything it cuts the whispy ultra highs.Then I tried it as a snare mic, great job. Keeps all the body and snap of the snare.more I use it the more I think I need another one for the "mic chest".If your looking at a "57" do yourself a favor and go with this, you won't be sorry.

Best Uses

    Comments about Audio-Technica ATM650 Hypercardioid Dynamic Instrument Microphone:

    The ATM650 is my favorite for close mic-ing guitar cabs, and its killer aimed down at the head of a conga drum.. Want real impact from the snare in your live mix, use the ATM650 on the under side...

    Comments about Audio-Technica ATM650 Hypercardioid Dynamic Instrument Microphone:

    To get to the point, this mic will easily be the new standard and finally put an end to the 57 and i5 hype. Welcome to the new age where dynamics will meet the quality of condensers

      Comments about Audio-Technica ATM650 Hypercardioid Dynamic Instrument Microphone:

      This is a nice mic. Well-made, sturdy, good response, good placement with the included clip. I have not used other AT mics before and bought this based on reviews, but based on this, I will surely be looking at them in future.

      As of now, I've really only used this for snare drum and it works very well for that. I read that it's a good general instrument mic. I will need to experiment with that and may add comments later when I have had the chance.

          AT never disappoints me. I purchased these to mic musical instruments and childrens choir. They gave me condenser clarity with a dynamic mic at a very good low cost. Proves you don't have to spend a lot for great sound.
