AT AT4050

Audio-Technica AT4050 - Large diaphragm multi-pattern condenser Microphone


A clean and detailed sounding multi-pattern condenser microphone, that sounds great on vocals and acoustic guitar. Being multi pattern you can pair the Audio Technica AT4050 with a cardioid microphone for mid side recording techniques. This microphone presents excellent value for money for someone looking for a clean, transparent sound in the studio. Meet the studio condenser that captures every nuance. With three 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.
