Overview

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.

Features
  • Smooth, extended frequency response
  • Slight rise in the high-frequency region
  • Ideal for drum overheads, acoustic guitar, piano, horns and under snare
  • Low-mass diaphragm improves transient response
  • Transformerless circuitry virtually eliminates low-frequency distortion
  • State-of-the-art design and manufacturing techniques
  • Switchable hi-pass filter and rugged turned-brass microphone housing

Best Uses

    Comments about Audio-Technica AT4041 Cardioid Microphone:

    These are really fantastic mics for all sorts of recording applications. I have used them as drum overheads, room mics, choir mics and they have handled it all very well. They are not as bright or as harsh as other mics which makes them much more useful for things like vocals where too much high frequency is a problem. Great to buy them in the stereo pair.

    The Guitar Mic

    By 

    from UT

    Comments about Audio-Technica AT4041 Cardioid Microphone:

    This is the best mics I have have ever used for micing up an acoustic guitar. If you have a good room then a room mic is a good with this mic but if not this mic on its own has an excellent sound. Very clear and crisp but also pickups the ump that most mics tend to miss out on.

    One of the best bang for buck mics

    By 

    from NYC

    Comments about Audio-Technica AT4041 Cardioid Microphone:

    These make great bang for the buck stereo pairs for overheads or instrument micing. Very clean consistent reproduction of the source.
