Product Description

The Audix ADX51 Instrument Condenser Microphone is a studio workhorse! The ADX51 is a pre-polarized condenser microphone designed to handle a wide variety of live, studio and broadcast applications. Characterized with a cardioid pickup pattern and a smooth uniform response over a frequency range of 40-20k Hz, the ADX51 is precision machined from solid brass with a low reflective black e-coat finish.

The ADX51 is designed with low noise electronic circuitry, balanced output, and switches that enable a 10 dB pad and a bass roll-off. The ADX51 is road-worthy and capable of handling high sound pressure levels of 142dB. The Audix ADX51 is an excellent overhead for Drums and Percussion,Bells, cymbals, hi-hat, and goodie tables.

It also excels at miking acoustic instruments like acoustic guitar, piano, saxophone, orchestra (zone miking), as well as group vocals- the ADX51 may be used as a hanging microphone or on a stand to pick up group vocals for ensemble, choirs or plays. Two microphones may be positioned overhead or in front of the group, at a distance of approximately 4-6 feet apart. The ADX51 is definitely a great addition to any microphone arsenal, studio or live.

What is your opinion of this product?
One of the best pencil condenser mics around. Works great for recording overheads & hi hat on drums. Also, sounds great recording acoustic guitar also. Highly recommend for the money.

Top Notch
This is one of the best condenser mics available. Sounds absolutely great on cymbals, hi hat, and chimes.
It's lightweight but well built and features a bass roll off switch along with a pad switch.
Very easy to set up and quite sensitive, so be careful when first setting it up and bringing up the volume.
The tone and sound quality has to be heard. You will need little or no EQ when using this mic.
Your general opinion of this product.
A Great Mic for the money. Well built and thought out. I Highly Recommend this Mic for drummers and other high SPL applications.
