Beginning as a turntable company in 1962, Audio-Technica has become a spectacular manufacturer of microphones, headphones and wireless devices. Here at House of Musical Traditions, not only do we sell these items, but we're true believers, with our pro audio division (Dave Eisner's "Sounds Reasonable" sound engineering company) using almost excusively AT microphones and most of our staff finding that both on and off the stage, in the studio and in the field, Audio-Technica microphones really provide an ideal balance between quality and price unmatched in the world of pro audio gear.
