Nothing quickens the pulse like a great drum beat. A well-oiled groove or driving beat is at the foundation of any great live show or hit record. While the Kick and Snare provide the backbone, Toms provide the color, fills, and ques that add excitement to the mix.
Avantone’s ATOM drum mics are designed to bring full bodied punch and definition to rack and floor Toms. Big sound, ease of use, dependable build quality, and great looks have made Atom tom-tom mics a favorite since 2007. Now in its 2nd generation, the Atom’s bold voicing is so finely tuned, an EQ is often not needed. We stand behind the Atom tom mic as the best sounding, fastest way to capture and enhance the midrange “voice” of any drum kit, or instrument.
The Avantone Atom is a top shelf studio quality condenser/cardioid drum mic, that’s equally at home on the road thanks to its rock-solid construction. Avantone never uses plastic parts or unreliable cost cutting materials. Each mic is built to last, using dye cast housings, and interwoven brass/steel grill assemblies.
Every Avantone drum mic uses a pair of precision machined inserts that allow a positive “lock” with its shock mount. This simple but important feature keeps the mic firmly positioned on the sweet spot, regardless of how hard the drum is hit. A deep Cabernet red finish, Gloss black grill assembly and polished nickel trim provides an aesthetically impressive presentation in any studio.
