Scan Pro Audio Recommended - These are awesome for mic'ing up in auditoriums and choirs, ideally placed about a meter above and a metre in front of the performers, with it hanging down at a 45 degree angle
With robust construction and unobtrusive appearance, the PRO 45 offers versatile sound-reinforcement solutions for speech, theater, orchestra and choir sound reinforcement and recording.
The microphones' high-SPL handling is perfect for suspension over choirs and orchestras.
The PRO45 is a wide-range condenser microphone with a cardioid (unidirectional) polar pattern.
It was designed for high-quality sound reinforcement and other demanding sound pickup applications.
The PRO 45 is furnished with a vinyl-coated steel hanger that allows it to be positioned inconspicuously over a choir, orchestra, stage, etc., for low-profile situations.
The PRO 45 features a 25' (7.6 m) permanently-attached miniature cable with an XLRM-type connector, which allows it to be plugged directly into an XLRF-type jack or cable connector.
The unit's integral electronics can be powered from any external 9V to 52V
DC phantom power source.
Audio-Technica design engineers have utilized the newest low-mass technology in the quest for superior performance.
The charge is now on the fixed back plate, rather than the moving element. With the A-T fixed-charge "back plate" construction, a gold-vaporized diaphragm just 2 microns thick (about 0.000079") can be used.
This reduces moving mass substantially, improving frequency response and transient response while reducing distortion.
The microphone element is enclosed in a rugged housing with a low-reflectance black finish.
