Audio-Technica has introduced several new mic bundles geared toward drummers and vocalists.

The PRO-DRUM4 and PRO-DRUM7 bundles are geared as starter packs but are also suitable for drummers and musicians at all levels for live or studio use. The PRO-DRUM4 includes a PRO 25ax Hypercardioid Dynamic Microphone for kick, a PRO 63 Cardioid Dynamic Microphone for snare, and two of the new PRO 23 Cardioid Dynamic Microphone for toms, along with two drum mounts and a carrying case.

The PRO-DRUM7 bundle includes a PRO 25ax, a PRO 63, two PRO 23’s and two AT2021 Cardioid Condenser Microphones for overhead/cymbals, along with three mounts and a carrying case. “The PRO-DRUM7 bundle, in particular, is a great all-around studio pack, with several of the mics being able to do double-duty on drums, guitars, amps and other instruments,” said Gary Boss, Audio-Technica marketing director, Professional Markets.

The ATM-DRUM4 and ATM-DRUM7 bundles on the other hand are geared toward pros and touring drummers. The ATM-DRUM4 includes one each of ATM250 and ATM650 Hypercardioid Dynamic Microphones for kick/snare, and two ATM450 Cardioid Condenser Microphones for overhead/cymbals, along with a carrying case. The ATM-DRUM7 bundle includes an ATM250, an ATM650, three ATM230 Hypercardioid Dynamic Microphones for toms and two ATM450’s, along with three drum mounts and a carrying case.

Audio-Technica is also offering four new bundles that include microphone/headphone solutions for all aspects of content creation. Two bundles feature USB outputs to directly connect with computers, while two feature XLR outputs for more flexibility to connect with professional mixers or digital interfaces.

All bundles feature a microphone with mount, ATH-M20x Professional Monitor Headphones and a new custom boom arm with desk mount. The boom arms are pre-threaded with the appropriate USB or XLR microphone cable compatible with the included microphone for a clutter-free appearance.
