The Avantone ADM snare drum mic has proven itself to be the “go-to” snare drum mic solution, for studio and live performance since its introduction in 2007. Delivering unrivaled reliability alongside it’s traditional “industry-standard” sonic profile, the ADM earned its reputation the old-fashioned way: Proven performance, in the most prestigious studios and concert halls across the country.
Now in its 2nd generation, the ADM is better than ever before. Ongoing R&D has yielded what we believe is the finest snare drum mic available today- the ‘new industry standard”. The new generation ADM features a smooth, extended upper range and better low-end definition that elevate its versatility and ease of use, without sacrificing the instantly recognizable sound you rely on from a traditional dynamic snare drum mic. The ADM is consistent and equally well suited for use with rack tom’s, hand Percussion of all kinds, and of course Guitar cabs, and more.
Avantone knows that even the greatest sounding mics are only as good as they are reliable. Without any plastic parts to break or wear out, Avantone drum mics are as constantly dependable as a metronome. Each mic is built using dye cast housings and interwoven brass/steel grill assemblies. You won’t find any cost cutting plastic parts that won’t stand up with time.
