“Revolutionary dual-element design”

The AE2500 combines a condenser and dynamic element in the same shell, positioned in a perfect phase relationship; practically unachievable with two separate microphones.

“Dynamic and condenser elements”

The dual elements combine to capture the whole sound of the kick drum. The dynamic element delivers the aggressive attack of the beater, while the condenser capsule captures the bass and tonalities of the shell.

“Complete control”

Both elements of the AE2500 have their own outputs, as well as the condenser element having an 80 HZ HPF switch and 10 dB pad, allowing the user to get a precise tailore sound.
