The Avantone ADM Dynamic Snare Microphone represents the very finest snare drum microphone available, both for live performance and studio recording projects. Utilizing the finest materials in design and construction, the ADM yields a very solid feel, superb structural integrity and rugged reliability.
The Avantone ADM Dynamic Snare Microphone is voiced to "follow" the familiar sound of industry standard snare microphones. However, the Avantone engineered a better low end and smoother, extended top end. Although Avantone calls it a "snare drum mic", the ADM is a versatile microphone that is completely at home on high toms, bongos, congas, guitar cabinets, etc.
Avantone ADM Dynamic Snare Microphone is die cast from zinc, with a brass and steel grill assembly. As with all of Avantone mics, there is no plastic to break! Aesthetically, the Avantone ADM Dynamic Snare Mic features an elegant Cabernet Wine-Red finish, accented with polished nickel trim and a black grill assembly. All components are designed and manufactured using the finest materials yielding a very solid feel, superb structural integrity and rugged reliability.
A unique feature of the Avantone ADM Dynamic Snare Mic is pair of machined insets on the barrel of the microphone body. These insets allow the O-rings of the Avantone SSM shockmount to "lock" the Avantone ADM Dynamic Snare Mic into place, which prevents mic shifting and slippage.
The included Avantone SSM Shock Mount is as rugged as you can find and allows for a superb decoupling of the mics from unwanted low-frequency transfer and rumble. This feature, coupled with the use of the Avantone Pro-Klamps, results in a much tighter, less muddy sound than other brands of drum mics. The O-rings are manufactured using a custom formula. The new world class Ethylene Propylene formula 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 Avantone SSM is constructed of heavy-duty die-cast zinc, which is not only incredibly durable but also adds mass, which contributes to vibration dampening/decoupling.
The included Avantone PK-1 Pro-Klamp drum rim mic mount is superb in allowing a confident positioning of the Avantone ADM Dynamic Snare Mic while inhibiting the transfer of unwanted vibrations up into the mic with three(!) stages of rubber dampening/decoupling material. This isolation allows for professional results without the need for traditional tripod/boom stands. While it was designed to withstand the rigors of live stage gigging, it is the first drum rim mic mount that will reliably work in a pro studio situation. This makes the engineer's job easier and insures that the Avantone ADM Dynamic Snare Mic will stay in place where he positions it. The Avantone PK-1 Pro-Klamp is built for reliability and is exceptionally rugged, with heavy-duty metal construction.
The Avantone rounds out the package with a rugged custom-molded and padded case to safely store and transport your Avantone mic. The Avantone ADM, PK-1 Pro-Klamp, SSM Shock Mount, and included carrying case are each inspected, tested, and carefully packed in New York.
The Avantone ADM Snare Drum Mic is a truly gorgeous looking and sounding microphone. Its proprietary design, character and performance is made to set a new standard in drum miking. Any studio or venue can proudly & confidently offer the Avantone ADM Snare Drum Mic for professional use during recording or live performance.

Was expecting the older version but very happy with the new. Only one issue it smells like it was in a fire. I know because i am a firefighter. So for now im just airing it out.
