One of the new stars of the Artist Series remake, the ATM450 cardioid condenser offers an innovative side-address stick design for endless placement options and minimal obstructions. The microphone is equipped with an integral 80 Hz hi-pass filter that provides easy switching from a flat frequency response to a low-end roll-off. The ATM450 also features a switchable 10 dB pad that lowers the microphone's sensitivity, providing higher SPL capability for flexible use with a wide range of performers and system configurations. The microphone’s extended flat frequency response makes it ideal for high SPLs as well as for live and amplified acoustic instruments. Includes a professional isolation clamp to provide secure mounting, versatile positioning and effective dampening of unwanted mechanical noise.
 

Is this a good microphone for wooden flute?

I play Irish traditional music on wooden flute. Most of my amplified playing is for dances -- ceilis, contras -- i.e., noisy environment.

I've been playing for years through the trusty old warhorse, Shure SM-57, but I'm wondering if there isn't something a bit "higher end" that might perform a bit better?

Is the ATM450 a suitable mic? Or does AT have another product in this price range that would be more suitable for mic'ing wooden flute through a PA in a noisy setting? I don't specifically need a clip-on mic, because when playing for dances, I'm mostly stationary -- and there may even be times when I may want to mic a fiddle with this mic.

Many thanks in advance for your kind advice.
