Product Details

Audio-Technica AT4050 Studio Condenser Microphone

Meet the studio condenser that captures every nuance. 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. Ideal 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 five-step aging process so that the optimum characteristics achieved remain constant over years of use. State-of-the-art surface-mount electronics ensure compliance with A-T's stringent consistency and reliability standards. Includes furnished accessories: AT8449 shock mount for 5/8"-27 threaded stands, microphone dust cover, and a protective carrying case.
