    The Artist Elite AE5100 large diaphragm cardioid condenser instrument microphone provides uncompromising sound quality for overheads, percussion, acoustic guitar, strings and other acoustic instruments. With rich, warm, accurate sound, the AE5100 also incorporates the most essential ingredients for quality live sound in a choir microphone. Its large-diaphragm capsule delivers accurate, natural response, while its low-profile design permits innovative placement options. With a lower profile than the large studio microphones to which it compares sonically, the AE5100 offers an outstanding performance-to-size ratio. With its low noise and smooth response, the AE5100 is ideal for recording, too.

      Comments about AUDIO-TECHNICA Audio Technica AE5100 Artist Elite Performance 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
