The AT4050 Multi-Pattern Condenser Microphone from Audio-Technica is a large-diaphragm side-address externally polarized condenser microphone with three switchable polar patterns: cardioid, omnidirectional, and figure-8. It can be used to capture audio for broadcast, studio, and sound reinforcement applications.
The AT4050 is powered by 48V phantom power and built with a 3-pin XLR output connector. It is equipped with a -10 dB pad that lowers the microphone sensitivity and provides higher SPL capability. This makes it applicable in a wide range of applications like vocals, piano, strings, drum overheads, and guitar amp capture. Its dual large diaphragms are gold-vaporized and aged for consistent, high-quality performance.
Furthermore, a precision-machined, nickel-plated brass acoustic element baffle provides solid element stability and maximum sensitivity. The AT4050 includes a shockmount, a microphone dust cover, and a protective carrying case.
