Overview
  • 1Description

The 4038 from Coles is a studio ribbon microphone that was originally developed by the BBC as a broadcast microphone. Recognized for its wide, flat frequency response and high sensitivity, the 4038 quickly became a valuable tool in the recording studio as well as broadcast applications. The pressure gradient ribbon transducer is capable of withstanding high sound pressure levels without distortion and the bi-directional (figure 8) polar pattern provides a uniform pick up response at either side of the diaphragm. The bi-directional pattern proves valuable when capturing multiple singers, musical instruments, ambiance capturing and more. The smooth, rich sonic detail of the 4038 has made the microphone a classic among some of the recording industries most celebrated engineers.

Pressure Gradient Ribbon Transducer
High sensitivity and SPL handling are just some of the attributes associated with ribbon transducers, the 4038 is hailed for its overall sonic performance.
Flat Frequency Response
The flat and wide frequency response of 30 Hz to 15 kHz results in rich, transparent audio reproduction while eliminating low frequency noise.
Bi-directional Polar Pattern
The bi-directional (figure 8) polar pattern provides an even pick up response at both sides of the diaphragm.
Low Hum and Noise Floor
The tailored frequency response and hum eliminating electronics, result in an output stage that provides high audio gain levels and low noise floor.
