What We Think

"Audio Technica's AT4060A Tube Microphone exhibits a wonderfully detailed and silky smooth sound. Vocalists love it and it's great for a number of other applications, such as guitar cabinets and acoustic instruments. The AT4060A is a favorite for achieving that more modern day "Steely Dan-ish" type of sound - clean, detailed, yet warm and dimensional."
