“exceptional transparency”

The large-diaphragm microphone combined with an “open” head structure provides high accuracy and exceptional sound clarity.

“highly effective but with a low profile”

A microphone that fits comfortably into the palm of your hand; discretion and ergonomics allow optimal positioning of the element relative to the sound source.

“switchable low-cut filter and fader”

The integrated low-cut filter allows for the easy switching of flat frequency response to attenuate the bass. The 10dB attenuator reduces microphone sensitivity, whilst increasing the sound pressure level, thus increasing the versatility of the AE3000.

low-cut FILTeR

The AE3000 is equipped with a filter that suppresses frequencies below 80 Hz, with a slope of 12dB / octave.

tapered Grille

The microphone’s large capsule is protected by a tapered grille, allowing you to slide the AE3000 closer to capture instruments.

isolation clamp

The AT8471 isolation clamp is included to ensure secure mounting, versatile positioning, and to mitigate any unwanted mechanical noise.

protective pouch

The AE3000 comes with a soft protective pouch for easy storage and transport.
