|The PRO45 from Audio Technica is the ideal suspension microphone for general purpose use and it won't break the bank.
Capable of handling high audio levels the microphone is perfect for hanging over choirs and orchestras as well as being more than capable of picking up the finest details of a presentation. The audio reproduction is very genuine thanks to the flat response of the microphone capsule.
