Tuned to deliver a tonal character akin to classic FET mics, the silver Audio-Technica AT4047/SV is a large-diaphragm cardioid condenser microphone designed for warm, low-noise reproduction of vocals and various instruments, making it a versatile tool in project studios and home setups as well as for commercial facilities. The dual-diaphragm capsule enables consistent polar response throughout the mic's frequency range while the transformer-coupled output further contributes to the vintage-style sound. Additionally, the precision-machined acoustic baffle yields increased stability and sensitivity.

The housing assembly's symmetrical construction lessens undesired reflections around the capsule and a switchable 80 Hz high-pass filter offers at-the-source reduction of rumble and low-frequency buildup. Thanks to the custom shockmount, the AT4047/SV is further isolated from vibration and stand-borne noise. Since it can take extremely high SPLs without distorting—up to 159 dB with the -10 dB pad engaged—the mic is a great choice for loud instruments in addition to nuanced, intimate performances.

Warm, Vintage-Style Sound

The mic's rich, warm sound takes you back to the classic FET studio microphones, but there's nothing remotely old-fashioned about the technology behind that vintage sound.

Dual-Diaphragm Condenser Capsule

The AT4047/SV studio condenser's dual large-diaphragm capsule design maintains precise polar pattern definition across the full frequency range.

Versatile Applications

With a wide dynamic range, incredibly low self-noise, and high SPL capability, this versatile microphone excels on vocals, strings, acoustic guitar, instrument ensembles, small vocal groups, and voice-overs.

Switchable Settings

The 80 Hz high-pass filter easily switches between flat frequency response and a low-cut filter that diminishes ambient noise and popping with closely miked vocals. The -10 dB pad allows distortion-free pickup of blaring instruments such as drums and guitar amps.

Features at a Glance

  • Cardioid polar pattern for directional focus and rejection of off-axis sounds
  • Transformer-coupled output and specially tuned element provide sonic characteristics reminiscent of early FET studio microphone designs
  • Exceptionally low self-noise, wide dynamic range, and high SPL capability (up to 159 dB with pad engaged)
  • Dual-diaphragm capsule design maintains precise polar pattern definition across the full frequency range of the microphone
  • Precision-machined, nickel-plated brass acoustic element baffle provides enhanced element stability and optimal sensitivity
  • Vintage silver-matte finish on microphone and shockmount
  • Open acoustical environment of the symmetrical housing assembly minimizes unwanted internal reflections
  • State-of-the-art, surface-mount electronics ensure compliance with A-T's stringent consistency and reliability standards
  • Switchable 80 Hz high-pass filter and -10 dB pad
  • Custom shockmount provides superior isolation
  • XLR 3-pin output connector
  • 48V phantom powered
