This versatile addition to the Artist Series features a new multi-stage flat grille design for precise positioning close to the sound source. Equipped with a neodymium magnet for high-output performance, the ATM650 has a frequency response tailored for clear sound reproduction of guitar cabinets, snare and percussion. A-T’s innovative dual-wall floating construction banishes handling noise.


How to setup drum overheads?

I re-opened the project and reduced the drum panning from 100% to 60%. Got enough spread to sound stereo and got rid of the ride bouncing. With the hard panned guitars the project sounder better than it was before. Thanks!

Tracking live drums

Sennheiser 431 mk2 is beefy and has really nice rejection but pricey SM57 with the crimson white mod is nice and I normally hate 57's An ATM650 is a sleeper is beefy and punchy. Also if you have a 441 under the snare it adds a lot of body. Good Luck
