Common name: Avantone Pro ADM
Production Status: In production
The ADM is a cardioid dynamic snare drum microphone. Although primarily a snare drum mic, the ADM is also well suited for high toms, bongos, congas and guitar cabinets. It is die cast from zinc, with a brass and steel grill assembly. The included SSM shock mount allows for a decoupling from unwanted low-frequency transfer and rumble. This feature, coupled with the use of the PRO-KLAMPS, results in a much tighter, less muddy sound. The O-rings are manufactured using a custom Ethylene Propylene formula that provides enormous resistance to breakage, resistance to surface nicks and remains supple and effective even against dry, hot temperatures. It is resistant to ozone and weathering, which makes it great for use around electronics devices, and maintains its physical properties even in a stretched condition. The included PK-1 Pro-Klamp drum rim mic mount allows for a confident positioning of the mic while inhibiting the transfer of unwanted vibrations up into the mic with three stages of rubber dampening/decoupling material. Includes SSM shock mount, PK-1 rim mic mount and custom-molded padded carrying case.
