A desert-island all-purpose mic that can give you silky vocals or screaming guitars.
- Dual large gold diaphram capsule
3 switchable polar patterns: omni, cardioid, figure-8
Transformerless circuitry virtually eliminates low-frequency distortion and provides superior correlation of high-speed transients
State-of-the-art surface-mount electronics ensure compliance with A-T's stringent consistency and reliability standards
Switchable 80Hz hi-pass filter and 10dB pad
Custom shock mount provides superior isolation
Audio-Technica AT4050 Multi-Pattern Condenser Microphone
Meet the Audio-Technica AT4050, a multi-pattern studio condenser microphone that captures every nuance. With 3 switchable polar patterns, the large-diaphragm Audio-Technica AT4050 exhibits a remarkable combination of qualities: high-SPL capability with transparent and airy uppers/mids complemented by rich low-end qualities. Its dual large diaphragms are gold-vaporized and aged for consistent, outstanding performance. A precision-machined, nickel-plated brass acoustic element baffle provides rock-solid element stability and exceptional sensitivity.
The AT4050 is an ideal microphone for studio use and live sound productions with vocals, piano, strings, drum overheads, guitar amps, and more.
•Transparent uppers/mids balanced by rich low-end qualities combine with advanced acoustic engineering for extensive performance capabilities and highest quality
•Dual-diaphragm capsule design maintains precise polar pattern definition across the full frequency range of the microphone
•The 2-micron-thick, vapor-deposited gold diaphragms undergo a 5-step aging process so that the optimum characteristics achieved remain constant over years of use
•Transformerless circuitry virtually eliminates low-frequency distortion and provides superior correlation of high-speed transients
•Open acoustical environment of the symmetrical housing assembly minimizes unwanted internal reflections
•State-of-the-art surface-mount electronics ensure compliance with A-T's stringent consistency and reliability standards
