The ADX51 is the go-to instrument microphone for musicians, sound engineers, and audio equipment rental companies looking for unmatched clarity and precision. Whether you're capturing the delicate nuances in the studio or amplifying sounds on stage, this overhead microphone ensures exceptional performance.

Tailored for acoustic instruments, the ADX51 is renowned for its lucid, precise response. It thrives in close and distance miking, effortlessly isolating the target instrument from other sounds on stage. Driven by a uniformly controlled cardioid polar pattern, it homes in on the specific acoustics of the instrument, ensuring that every note and timbre stands out.

With its impressive frequency range of 40 Hz – 18 kHz, the ADX51 boasts a 14 mm gold vapor diaphragm, a -10 dB pad, and an integral bass roll-off filter at 150Hz. This ensures the microphone captures sound in its most authentic and pure form.

The ADX51 has it in spades. Built with a precision-machined brass body, it sports a resilient black E-coat finish and a robust steel mesh grill. The gold-plated XLR connector ensures lasting connectivity and minimal interference.

Made For The Stage

Positioning the ADX51 is a breeze, making it a favorite for on-the-go sound engineers and musicians. Its lasting build is a testament to the high standards and tight tolerances upheld by Audix. Every unit is designed, assembled, and tested in the USA, guaranteeing both quality and reliability. Invest in the best; the ADX51 won't let you down.
