Coles 4040 Studio Ribbon Microphone

Coles 4040 ribbon microphone
MFR# 4040

Product Description

With a bold look, greater output, and a wider frequency response, the Coles 4040 is sure to compliment any studio microphone cabinet.

This is the first ribbon microphone that Coles have developed using the very latest magnet technology.  The frequency response of the 4038 is exceptionally flat from 30 to 15,000 c/s but where the Coles 4038 starts to drop off, the Coles 4040 carries on past 20,000 c/s and throughout this range, like the 4038, the shape of the bi-directional (figure of eight) polar response is maintained substantially constant both in the horizontal and vertical planes, giving a natural smooth sonic quality textured response to sound signal being picked up.  There is also no discernible stray magnetic field, making it very easy to mount head to head in a "Blumlein" (crossed figure-of-eights) stereo configuration.

The 4040 comes complete with internal shockmount that can be secured for transit, an adjustable, universal stand mount and a hard case for storage.

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

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.
