The ADX40 (ADX40W for the white version) is a miniaturized condenser microphone designed to hang from an overhead position for applications such as group vocals, choir, theatrical production and room ambience. Known for its clarity, resistance to feedback and ease of operation, the ADX40 has the ability to accurately capture and reproduce sound from a distance. The ADX40 is characterized with a uniformly controlled cardioid polar pattern, helping to isolate the area or section being miked from other vocals or instruments on stage.

The ADX40 is also available in a hypercardioid polar pattern (model ADX40HC) for tighter pick-up control. With a wide frequency range of 40 Hz - 20 kHz, the ADX40 provides natural sound with exceptional transient response. The ADX40 is supplied with an attached 30’ cable, external windscreen, wire hanger for positioning and phantom power adapter. Manufactured with very high standards and tight tolerances, the ADX40 features a machined brass body, field replaceable capsule and a variety of optional accessories.
