Audio-Technica AT4050 - Multi-Pattern Studio Condenser Microphone

You Pay: $699.00

The AT4050 by Audio-Technica is a multi-pattern condenser microphone designed to provide years of high-quality performance in any recording environment. Its transformerless design and "extended life" dual-diaphragm capsule produces a warm detailed response with virtually no low-end distortion.

Multiple Polar Patterns
The AT4050 features 3 switchable polar patterns. Cardioid, omni-directional and figure eight provide flexibility in allowing the microphone to be used in a variety of recording scenarios.
Gold Diaphragm Design
The capsule features a 2-micron thick, vapor-deposited gold diaphragm resulting in a 20Hz to 20kHz frequency response, 132dB dynamic range (without pad) and handles sound pressure levels up to 149dB.
Hi-Pass Filter Switch
The recessed high-pass filter switch effectively eliminates noise and low frequency rumble below 80Hz.
Pad Switch
The AT4050 features a 10dB attenuator switch, increasing the sound pressure level capabilities to 159dB.
Included Shock Mount
The included AT 8449 spring loaded shock mount effectively eliminates handling noise caused by shock to the microphone and stand.
