The classic edition of the legendary AT4033 microphone, the side-address AT4033/CL offers low-noise, symmetrical, transformerless circuitry that results in exceptional transient response and clean output signals. A studio classic and bluegrass favorite, the AT4033/CL cardioid studio condenser is the microphone that broke the US$1000-barrier in its class. A strong up-front presence characterizes the sonic signature of this 40 Series pro-audio classic. The AT4033/CL's 80Hz high-pass filter easily switches between flat frequency response and a low-end roll-off that diminishes ambient noise and popping with closely-miked vocals. Transformerless circuitry virtually eliminates low-frequency distortion and provides superior correlation of high-speed transients. Precision-machined, nickel-plated brass, acoustic element baffle provides enhanced element stability and optimal sensitivity. State-of-the-art surface-mount electronics ensure compliance with A-T's stringent consistency and reliability standards. Included furnished accessories: AT8449 shock mount for 5/8"-27 threaded stands, microphone dust cover, and a protective carrying case.
