In all seriousness, Audio-Technica wants to see where you’re going this summer (and what you’re hearing when you get there). It’s a simple process: just print out a copy of #ATMicMan, take him with you and snap a photo of him at your destination.
As we started to plan our last few summer concerts and nights making s’mores over the fire, we had to catch our breath at the thought that summer will actually be over soon.

Award-winning producers, engineers and musicians everywhere have come to rely on Audio-Technica’s 40 Series studio microphones for their superior, dependable performance. They turn to these mics again and again for a sonic consistency that’s hard to find elsewhere.
