Audio Technica AT4050 Multi-Pattern Microphone

The Audio Technica AT4050 Multi-Pattern Microphone is a large-diaphragm side-address externally polarized condenser microphone with three switchable polar patterns: omnidirectional, cardioid, and figure-of-eight. It is designed to meet the most critical acoustic requirements of professional recording, broadcast and sound reinforcement.

The Audio Technica AT4050 Multi-Pattern Microphone is a studio condenser that captures every nuance. With three switchable polar patterns, the large-diaphragm Audio-Technica AT4050 exhibits a remarkable combination of qualities: high-SPL capability with transparent and airy uppers/mids complemented by rich low-end qualities. Its dual large diaphragms are gold-vaporized and aged for consistent, outstanding performance. A precision-machined, nickel-plated brass acoustic element baffle provides rock-solid element stability and exceptional sensitivity.

Ideal for studio use and live sound productions with vocals, piano, strings, drum overheads, guitar amps, and more. It's transformerless circuitry virtually eliminates low-frequency distortion and provides superior correlation of high-speed transients. Audio-Technica’s AT4050. For performance that legends are made of!
