Audio-Technica is celebrating the 25th anniversary of its AT4050 multi-pattern condenser microphone. The AT4050 has the reputation as a studio condenser that captures every nuance. With three switchable polar patterns, the large-diaphragm 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. The AT4050 is ideal for studio use and live sound productions with vocals, piano, strings, drum overheads, guitar amps and more, stated the company.
“In a market flooded by new and updated microphone models, it’s gratifying to have this versatile legacy mic stand the test of time,” said Gary Boss, Audio-Technica marketing director, professional markets. “The AT4050’s sound hasn’t changed for 25 years, and to this day, it remains a first-call studio workhorse.”
