The Audio Technica AE2500 is a very unique microphone that is to be used in the recording studio only. The mic is a dual element microphone, meaning that it has both a dynamic and a condenser capsule inside of it. It is specifically designed for recording kick drum, which is the only application that I’ve used it for. It’s got a -10 db pad as well as a high pass filter at 80 Hz. The pick up pattern is a standard cardioid one and it will pick up frequencies between 20 Hz and 17 kHz.


I don’t think that I’ve ever used a microphone quite like the Audio Technica AE2500, as I don’t believe that there are too many mics out there with both a condenser and dynamic element in there. I don’t know how this would sound outside of using it for kick drum, but for recording kick this sounds absolutely awesome. It’s a really full bodied sound, covering both the low end boom and the higher end beater sound very well, depending of course where exactly you place it. I usually also use something like an AKG D112 or a Shure Beta 52 A closer to the beater in tandem with the AE2500 placed back a bit. I find that between the two mics I’ve got more than enough to work with, as both produce very full sounds, making it easy to blend the two to my taste. I don’t think that the AE2500 would be necessary in a smaller studio, as the aforementioned AKG D112 and Shure Beta 52A do a great job for kick drum and are much cheaper than this mic, but if you’re in a larger studio setting where you want more options for different situations, the AE2500 is an awesome microphone to have around. I certainly try to use it whenever I’ve got access to it, as how can you beat having two microphones in one!
