The AT4050 Multi-Pattern Condenser Microphone from Audio-Technica features three switchable polar patterns: cardioid, omnidirectional, and figure 8. It is designed for studio use and live sound production with vocals, piano, strings, drum overheads, and guitar amps. The microphone offers high SPL capability combined with transparent and airy uppers/mids, and is complemented by rich low-end qualities. Its dual large diaphragms are gold-vaporized and aged for consistent, high-quality performance. A precision-machined, nickel-plated brass acoustic element baffle provides solid element stability and maximum sensitivity.

The AT4050 includes a shock mount, a microphone dust cover, and a protective carrying case.

    Audio-Technica AT4050 reviews

    AT4050 Multi-Pattern Condenser Microphone is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Bang For Your Buck The AT4050 microphone is a great product. It gives an honest representation of sound whether you are recording vocals, flutes, or stringed instruments. I am a multi-instrumentalist and am very pleased with its capabilities in capturing the sonic qualities straight across the spectrum of musical instruments in numerous settings. The multi-pattern features are a huge bonus, along with the low cut and -10 dB pad switch. All I can say is that at the end of the day you got one heck of a good microphone.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Nice! I've had the AT4050 for less than a month and today I did some very fine recording with it. I was impressed and decided to write here. It is a very good mic, very professional sounding, no compromise kind of mic. No surprise it is the best selling mic in its price range. Buy with confidence.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from good for the money Its not a neumann but is a VERY good mic!! Ive done some recordings for the university and it works great recording almost everything, from vibe to flute to saxophone to timpany... Ive used to record a flute in my new CD, if anyone wanna hear the sound, go to myspace - rafaeldelima, the music to listen is GAIA. we use a neumann u87 on sax, AKG c414 on guitar and acustic bass, neumann km184 on cello and 10 string guitar, just to number a few. If you compare the sound, the flute with the at4050 just sound very good side with this (well known) more expensive mics.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile Mic Great mic, pattern options add for versatility. You may want to consider two mics for half this price though depending what you're doing.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good Very good mic, with lots of details, very clean, accurate and transparent. On voice, you can ear each breath of the singer. I didn't give 5 stars because I was Expecting more gain (than the shure ksm32)but it give just the same output level. But sound is lots better!
