AE5100 - works not for me!

Valdez18, 24.09.2017
After reading good reviews on Audio Technica AE5100 bought at Thomanns. It never worked for me: Today the findal test: Expensive guitar, RME babyface pro interface, vovox cable....everything sounds like plastic, like a cheap guitar. Same conditions with Neumann TLM102: Sounds like the original guitar. I will not exclude that there is something wrong with my mic, but I cannot recommend this mic for serious recording of acoustic guitar.

A TRUE ALLROUNDER !!!

Khodadad, 12.11.2009
I wanted to buy for my studio 3 official overheads and have pretty much tried everything there is at hip overhead micros currently on the market. I have tried these overheads: RODE NT-5, RODE NT-4, AKG C 1000, AKG C 391 B, AUDIX ADX 51, SHURE SM 94 LC. So I tried as much as possible, I have of course also a few overheads from higher price class tested

For example: AKG C 414 BXL II and Neumann KM 184. but as a winner stood for me at the end the miraculous Japanese microtraum AUDIO TECHNICA AE 5100th, of course, I would like to point out that my decision depends on my individual taste. The AUDIO TECHNICA AE 5100 sounds very warm, but also very silky at the same time. In high range it is decently raised, so that it sounds very pleasant for the ear, but does not cause any snappy heights. Another decisive buying factor for me was the relatively good reproduction in the bass range, which was with other small diaphragm mircos to be desired.

I think this babe is unbeatable.
