Best Uses

    Comments about Audio-Technica Artist Elite AE5100 Microphone:

    Using the AE5100 in a live trumpet performance environment has proved to me again the extreme high quality of the Audio Technica line. Sound reinforcement at any playing volume is superb whether indoors or out. I have never experienced any negative issues with this device, and have made good use of the AE5100 for over six years now. Even when the part calls for vocal use, this device provides a most natural sound. I fully expect another several years of solid sound reproduction from this microphone. Please, take comfort in knowing that this microphone will faithfully serve as a most valuable and reliable tool for 'work' or 'play'. Sincerely, Andy, Medina, Ohio

    Outstanding mic. I have used it for over a year and have had great success with this piece. It's built well and never gives me problems and has taken a trumpet player's abuse for a long time. Perfect sound reproduction for live gigs!


    Great Mic

    Comments about Audio-Technica Artist Elite AE5100 Microphone:

    I'm an active gigging songwriter. I play a Taylor 214E and a Republic Duolion resophonic Guitar. This mic picks up wonderfully without any tone loss. I'm a tone junkie so...if I had to pick something out that I wasn't happy about...well 1st off I'm pretty sure it's my fault...but it is pretty HOT and needs to be tweaked in the mix. When you're playing with it be aware of that. It's a professional grade microphone, buy it take care of it and it will take care of you.
