Overview

A desert-island all-purpose mic that can give you silky vocals or screaming guitars.

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


Requires phantom power.
