The AT2031 is the ideal microphone for stringed instruments in critical studio and live applications. Its permanently polarized element offers extended frequency response with a slight rise in the high frequency range for a more detailed sound. Its low self-noise and high SPL handling capability offer a wide dynamic range, perfectly suited for the most demanding applications. For professional recording studios, it is a perfect auxiliary microphone for a drum kit or to record in proximity to orchestral ensembles. For live recording, its rugged construction and low prices will make it a perfect companion for capturing percussion, acoustic guitar, hi-hat, overheads and piano.
Listening to this microphone is truly amazing especially when considering the price range. It can also serve as the main stereo pair or microphone boosters, for users with a larger budget.
The AT2031 offers excellent frequency response, and gives accurate and airy sound on sources difficult to capture, such as piano and strings.
With its gentle filter slope of 6 dB / Octave at 150 Hz, low frequencies are controlled in a very soft and natural way.
