OVERVIEW

Meeets the stringent demands of modern digital recording systems.

Ideal for professional recording and critical applications in broadcast, the Audio Technica AT4053 hypercardioid condenser microphone consists of the AT4900a-48 body with the AT4053a-EL hypercardioid element. This versatile studio performer may be used with confidence in a wide variety of professional miking applications, even under the stringent demands of modern digital recording systems. Featuring direct-coupled balanced outputs for clean signals in high-output conditions, the microphone is totally free of the distortion associated with conventional transformer-coupled outputs. And its fast response to transients contributes to the open, transparent reproduction of even the most difficult-to-capture instruments.
Requires phantom power.
