ADK Microphones THOR Multi-pattern Condenser Microphone

THOR, by ADK Microphones is a large diaphragm condenser microphone, featuring cardioid, figure-8 and omni-directional polar patterns. THOR is from ADK’s Studio Range - a cost-effective collection of solid-state project studio mic’s. However, these mic’s boast professional specs and standards. THOR is cable of handling up to 150dB of SPL, and has been designed as a studio all-rounder. Great on any style of vocals, and given their durability THOR is a great choice for high sound pressure instruments such as guitar / bass cabinets, kick drums and brass.


      The ADK THOR Tri-Polar-Pattern Multi-Voice Condenser Microphone has been designed as a high-SPL, reliable and robust microphone with enough flexibility tone-wise to cover any application. The dynamic range was set to allow for relatively heavy sound pressure levels, and attenuation pads enable these microphones to be used with sources up to 150 dB SPL. Keeping digital recording in mind, the noise floor is also appreciably low. These new microphones are solid, reliable “High-SPL” studio microphones that can also be used “Live”.

      The THOR works well for any moderate to high SPL source, whenever a fast, detailed recording is desired: All “Pop” and “Rock” vocals – with a pop filter (to protect the capsule from strong blasts of air). Brass – with a pop filter (to protect the capsule from strong blasts of air), Drum kit: Toms, Floor tom, overhead and spot mic-ing, including kick drum, Any amplified instruments – Guitar cabs, bass cabs, Any percussion instrument, Stereo/ambient recording, All stringed instrument, Solo/spot recording, Woodwinds.
