“precise and natural response”

Its large diaphragm condenser element combined with an "open" microphone head structure provides high accuracy and exceptional clarity in sound.

“solid CONSTRUCTION, constant reliability”

Robust metal construction ensures long lasting performance and consistent reliability on tour

“switchable low-cut filter and attenuator”

The integrated low-cut filter allows you to switch easily between flat frequency response and bass rolloff. Its 10dB attenuator reduces the sensitivity of the microphone, whilst increasing the sound pressure level, thus increasing the versatility of the AE5100.
