AUDIO TECHNICA STUDIO MICROPHONES - Condenser

From an 'introductory' design to a dual large-diaphragm, side-address, multi-pattern professional instrument, this range are all condenser designs.

MB4k

An 'introductory studio-quality microphone', this is a cardioid, condenser design for 'studio vocal and instrument applications' with 'extended response for smooth, natural sonic characteristics'. It has a on/off switch, all-metal construction and a soft-touch finish. It operates using a single 1.5V AA cell, 1200 hours alkaline, or 11-52V DC phantom power. Output: Balanced, 3-pin male XLR connector.Supplied without cable. Impedance: 200/250 ohms, phantom/battery powering. Maximum input: 137dB/125dB SPL, phantom/battery powering. Response: 80Hz-20kHz, sensitivity -46dB (5mV)/-48 dB (3.9mV) re 1V at 1 Pa, phantom/battery powering. Dimensions: 205.7mm long, 41.7mm head diameter. Weight: 182g.

Included accessories: AT8405A stand clamp for 5/8 inch thread, 5/8 inch to 3/8 inch threaded adapter, battery, soft protective pouch.

AT4041

This cardioid, condenser microphone is engineered to meet the 'most critical acoustic requirements of professional recording, broadcast and live sound' and has a 'smooth, extended frequency response with a slight rise in the high-frequency region' and transformerless output for 'very high SPL-handling capability'. Housed in a case of turned brass with black chrome plating for durability and low reflectivity, it is suitable for 'drum overheads, acoustic guitar, piano, horns and under snare'. A low-mass diaphragm improves transient response, increases response bandwidth and reduces handling and mechanical noise transfer. The transformerless circuitry 'virtually eliminates low-frequency distortion and provides superior correlation of high-speed transients'. A low-frequency roll-off filter may be switched in, 80Hz, 12 dB/octave. Requires 48V DC phantom power. Output: Balanced, 3-pin male XLR connector. Supplied without cable. Impedance: 100 ohms. Maximum input: 145dB SPL. Response: 20Hz-20kHz, sensitivity -36dB (15.8mV) re 1V at 1 Pa. Dynamic range: 121dB, 1kHz, at maximum SPL. Dimensions: 159.5mm long, 21mm diameter. Weight: 120g.

Included accessories: AT8405A stand clamp for 5/8 inch thread, carrying case.

AT4033aSM

Suitable for vocal or instrument recording and on-air presentation, this side-address, cardioid, condenser design offers 'low-noise, symmetrical, transformerless circuitry that results in exceptional transient response and clean output signals'. A strong 'up-front presence characterises the sonic signature of this 40 Series pro-audio classic'. A 80Hz high-pass, 12 dB/octave filter switches between 'flat frequency response and a low-end roll-off that diminishes ambient noise and popping with closely-miked vocals'. A precision-machined, nickel-plated brass, acoustic element baffle 'provides enhanced element stability and optimal sensitivity', the' floating-construction capsule assembly provides isolation from noise and vibration' while the 'open acoustical environment of the symmetrical housing assembly minimises unwanted internal reflections'. Requires 48V DC phantom power. Output: Balanced, 3-pin male XLR connector. Supplied without cable. Impedance: 100 ohms. Maximum input: 145dB SPL, 155dB with pad. Response: 30Hz-20kHz, sensitivity -32dB (25.1mV) re 1V at 1 Pa. Dynamic range: 128dB, 1kHz, at maximum SPL. Dimensions: 170mm long, 53.4mm maximum diameter. Weight: 380g.

Included accessories: AT8449 shock mount for 5/8 inch thread, carrying case.
Optional accessories: AT8137 foam windscreen.

AT4040SM

With an 'advanced large diaphragm tensioned specifically to provide smooth, natural sonic characteristics', this side-address, cardioid, condenser microphone offers 'exceptionally low noise, wide dynamic range and high-SPL capability for greatest versatility' for use in 'a wide variety of studio and live miking applications, even under the stringent demands of digital recording systems'. The low-noise circuitry is symmetrical and transformerless, resulting in 'exceptional transient response and clean output signals for transparent reproduction of even the most troublesome of instruments and sound effects'. A low-frequency roll-off filter may be switched in, 80Hz, 12 dB/octave, as may a 10dB pad. An 'externally polarised (DC bias) true condenser design' the AT4040SM requires 48V DC phantom power. Output: Balanced, 3-pin male XLR connector. Supplied without cable. Impedance: 100 ohms. Maximum input: 145dB SPL, 155dB with pad. Response: 20Hz-20kHz, sensitivity -32dB (25.1mV) re 1V at 1 Pa. Dynamic range: 133dB, 1kHz, at maximum SPL. Dimensions: 170mm long, 53.4mm maximum diameter. Weight: 360g.

Included accessories: AT8449 shock mount for 5/8 inch thread, carrying case.
Optional accessories: AT8137 foam windscreen.

AT4050SM

With three, switched, polar patterns, omnidirectional, cardioid and figure-of-eight, this dual large-diaphragm 'exhibits a remarkable combination of qualities: high-SPL capability with transparent and airy uppers/mids complemented by rich low-end qualities'. The diaphragms are gold-vaporised and aged for 'consistent, outstanding performance'. A precision-machined, nickel-plated brass acoustic element baffle provides 'rock-solid element stability and exceptional sensitivity'. Suitable for 'studio use and live sound productions with vocals, piano, strings, drum overheads, guitar amps, and more'. A low-frequency roll-off filter may be switched in, 80Hz, 12 dB/octave, as may a 10dB pad. An 'externally polarised (DC bias) true condenser design' the AT4050SM requires 48V DC phantom power. Output: Balanced, 3-pin male XLR connector. Supplied without cable. Impedance: 100 ohms. Maximum input: 149dB SPL, 159dB with pad. Response: 20Hz-18kHz, sensitivity -36dB (15.8mV) re 1V at 1 Pa. Dynamic range: 132dB, 1kHz, at maximum SPL. Dimensions: 170mm long, 53.4mm maximum diameter. Weight: 360g.

Included accessories: AT8449 shock mount for 5/8 inch thread, carrying case.
Optional accessories: AT8137 foam windscreen.
