Audio-Technica AT4047/SV Cardioid Condenser Microphone


The Audio-Technica AT4047/SV is a large diaphragm cardioid condenser microphone that harkens back to classic FET designs from the 1970s. The specially-tuned capsule and transformer-coupled output give the AT4047 a sound reminiscent of vintage mics that cost thousands of dollars. This workhorse mic is exceptionally detailed, but with a big, warm low-end that makes it ideal for kick drums, bass amps, lead vocals and voiceover applications. When you're up close on a bottom-heavy source, flip on the pad and 80Hz high-pass filter to tame the level and proximity effect before it hits the preamp for clearer sound.

    This mic is better than its price point imo. Really good, versatile microphone that sounds more of quality than hyped tones.
