The AEW-T3300a cardioid condenser wireless handheld transmitter features the Artist Eliter AE3300 cardioid capsule based on the classic AT4033 studio microphone created for vocal applications. The element provides a well-tempered polar pattern with outstanding rejection qualities and includes internal shock mounts for low handling noise. An internal capsule 6 dB pad provides additional attenuation for extremely high SPL sources. An integral two-stage pop filter within the rugged steel headcase protects against "p" pops and other breath plosives. All transmitter setup functions are menu-driven via soft-touch controls. To prevent accidental changes, the controls are covered by the transmitter's handle case when not being used. A dual-color power/mute indicator LED provides visual indication of transmitter status.
Operating on two standard AA batteries, the transmitter features high and low-level RF output settings. The low-level setting allows two additional hours of battery life while retaining a strong RF signal link. Each transmitter's backlit LCD display presents a great deal of setup and operating information clearly and conveniently including: battery fuel remaining, mute, and operating frequency. A flashing "Lo-Batt" alert visually signals the battery life is almost depleted. Programmable power/ mute locks limit the functioning of the transmitter's power/mute button as desired for particular users and applications. To match the audio input level to the transmitter, a three-position audio input gain setting selected through the function menu is provided. Four namable user presets allow for storage and recall of commonly used settings. The rugged ergonomic metal body housing with integral antenna will provide years of dependable operation. Each handheld transmitter includes a heavy-duty Quiet-Flex stand clamp and a soft protective pouch.
