Audio-Technica AT4053b Hypercardioid Condenser Microphone

Hypercardioid studio condenser microphone
MFR# AT4053B

Product Description

The Audio-Technica AT4053B is a hypercardioid condenser microphone that you can use with confidence in a wide variety of professional miking applications. Featuring direct-coupled balanced outputs for clean signals in high-output conditions, the AT4053B mic is totally free of the distortion associated with conventional transformer-coupled outputs. And its fast response to transients contributes to the open, transparent reproduction of even the most difficult-to-capture instruments. The microphone is fully RoHS-compliant—free from all substances specified in the EU directive on the reduction of hazardous substances (RoHS). The Audio-Technica AT4053B consists of two modular subassemblies: an AT4900b-48 body and an AT4053b-EL hypercardioid head capsule.

Features:
  • Specially engineered to meet the most critical acoustic requirements of professional recording, broadcast and sound reinforcement
  • Hypercardioid polar pattern reduces pickup of sounds from the sides and rear, improving isolation of desired sound source
  • Direct-coupled, balanced output results in a clean signal even under high-output conditions
  • Transformerless circuitry virtually eliminates low-frequency distortion and provides superior correlation of high-speed transients
  • Switchable 80 Hz hi-pass filter and 10 dB pad
  • Rugged turned-brass microphone housing for enduring dependability
  • State-of-the-art design and manufacturing techniques ensure compliance with A-T s stringent consistency and reliability standards
  • RoHS-compliant—free from all substances specified in the EU directive on the reduction of hazardous substances (RoHS)

Before purchasing this microphone I did a lot of research. I listened to several sound samples, read and watched user reviews and finally took the plunge.
Three months into it I am beyond satisfied. It gives me exactly the rich deep sound I was hoping for and the sensitivity is great. For video interviews, podcasts, whatever this mic will shine.
Great service from my friends at Vintage King as well.
Thanks

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.

From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
