Cardioid Condenser Microphone Premium electret condenser microphone Smooth, extended frequency response Ideal for drum overheads, acoustic guitar, piano, horns and under snare Low-mass diaphragm improves transient response Transformerless circuitry virtually eliminates low-frequency distortion Custom shock mount provides superior isolatio
This premium electret condenser microphone is engineered to meet the most critical acoustic requirements of professional recording, broadcast and live sound. The AT4041 cardioid studio condenser microphone features a smooth, extended frequency response with a slight rise in the high-frequency region and a transformerless output for very high SPL-handling capability. A unique combination of audio excellence and moderate cost, the AT4041 is a rugged microphone housed in a case of turned brass with black chrome plating for durability and low reflectivity. The element back plate holds a fixed charge and has been aged to provide energy stabilization. The surface of the back plate is precision milled to ensure maximum charge linearity, resulting in a reduction in both frequency response peaks and diaphragm break-up distortion.
Transformerless circuitry ensures virtually no distortion of low frequencies providing excellent transient response.
Low-mass diaphragm improves transient response by increasing the bandwidth of the response and reducing the transfer of mechanical noise and handling.
Design techniques and advanced manufacturing ensuring compliance with Audio-Technica's strict standards of consistency and reliability.
