      Sleek, stick design bidirectional ribbon mic perfect for instrument miking.

      The handcrafted Audio-Technica AT4081 Active Ribbon Microphone delivers the warmth and natural sound of a classic ribbon microphone. The bidirectional AT4081 offers a robust build for long-lasting performance and higher output for maximum compatibility with microphone preamplifiers.

      With its low-profile stick design, the AT4081 is a natural mic to use for a wide range of instruments—horns, strings, drum overheads, orchestras, and more—and for miking guitar cabinets in recording studios and live-sound settings.

      Equally at home in recording studios and live-sound settings, the AT4081 microphone has Audio-Technica's innovative MicroLinear ribbon imprint, which protects the dual ribbons from lateral flexing and distortion.

      With 18 patents pending, Audio-Technica's innovative ribbon transducer advances the evolution of ribbon microphone design. Other features include powerful N50 neodymium magnets for high output level, supoerfine mesh to protect the ribbon against damage, high-SPL capability, and extended frequency response. The Audio-Technica AT4081 Bidirection Ribbon Microphone's phantom-powered active electronics provide stable impedance and high output for maximum compatibility with your mic preamp.
