For dependable and exemplary performance, the MB 1k offers rugged all-metal
construction and is specially tuned so that vocals and instruments cut
through the mix loud and clear. The MB 1k is confidently backed by Audio-Technica’s
exclusive five-year warranty.
The all-inclusive MB 1k/pack also features a durable tripod
microphone stand, the AT8470 Quiet-Flex stand clamp and 5/8"-27
