Audio-Technica's AT4050. For performance that legends are made of. Ideal for studio and live sound productions with vocals, piano, strings, drum overheads, guitar amps, and more.
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.
Transparent uppers/mids balanced by rich low-end qualities combine with advanced acoustic engineering for extensive performance capabilities and highest qualityDual-diaphragm capsule design maintains precise polar pattern definition across the full frequency range of the microphoneThe 2-micron-thick, vapor-deposited gold diaphragms undergo a five-step aging process so that the optimum characteristics achieved remain constant over years of useThree switchable polar patterns: omni, cardioid, figure-of-eightTransformerless circuitry virtually eliminates low-frequency distortion and provides superior correlation of high-speed transientsState-of-the-art surface-mount electronics ensure compliance with A-T's stringent consistency and reliability standardsSwitchable 80 Hz hi-pass filter and 10 dB padCustom shock mount provides superior isolation
