Multi-pattern Condenser Microphone Three switchable polar patterns Switchable 80 Hz high-pass filter and 10 dB pad Large diaphragm for smooth, natural sound and low noise State-of-the-art surface-mount electronics Includes shock mount & protective pouch
The versatile AT2050 provides consistent, superior performance in switchable cardioid, omnidirectional and figure-of-eight polar pattern settings. Its dual large diaphragms are gold-vaporized and aged to achieve optimum characteristics over years of use. Equipped with a switchable 80 Hz high-pass filter and 10 dB pad, the microphone is ideal for studio and live sound use on vocals, piano, strings, drum overheads, guitar amps, and more.
The dual-diaphragm capsule design maintains precise polar pattern definition across the full frequency range of the microphone. Its dual large diaphragms are gold-vaporized and aged to achieve optimum characteristics over years of use.
The AT2050 provides consistent, superior performance in switchable cardioid, omnidirectional and figure-of-eight polar pattern settings, that give it great versatility, depending on the type of recording and the sound source to capture.
An integral 80Hz hi-pass filter provides easy switching from a flat frequency response to a low-end roll-off. The high pass position reduces the microphone's sensitivity to popping in close vocal use. It also reduces the pickup of low-frequency ambient noise (such as traffic, air-handling systems, etc.), room reverberation and mechanically-coupled vibrations.
