Product Highlights
  • Omnidirectional Polar Pattern
  • 80Hz Hi-Pass Filter
  • -10dB Pad Switch

The Audio-Technica AT4022 Omnidirectional Condenser Microphone features a low-profile design and small-diaphragm condenser element. The sensitivity, frequency response and SPL capabilities make it a suitable choice for speaker cabinets, vocals, percussion instruments, drums and "spot" placement on guitars, stringed instruments, etc.

The omnidirectional polar pattern provides a wide pickup area and preserves the integrity of the signal. An 80Hz high-pass filter switch reduces low frequencies and all associated noise. In addition a -10dB Pad switch provides added headroom and minimizes distortion when capturing transient (peaking) audio signals.

      Comments about Audio-Technica AT4022 Small-Diaphragm Omnidirectional Condenser Microphone:

      Audio-Technica has achieved what I thought was not possible in a microphone at this price. It provides very accurate and clear reproduction of string and reed instruments with a robust signal/noise ratio. In fact, the self-noise is far below what I expected in this small diaphragm design.
