ADX51 Pre-Polorised Cardioid Condenser Cymbal & Instr Mic

The ADX51 is a professional pre-polarized condenser microphone used for stage, studio and broadcast applications. The ADX51 is known for its clear, accurate response and flexibility to handle close or distance miking for a wide variety of acoustic instruments.
