A Do-It-All Mic for the Studio
Every audio engineer loves having a flexible large-diaphragm condenser microphone that can get the job done in a variety of situations. Your Audio-Technica AT4040 utilizes low-noise transformerless circuitry that minimizes low-frequency distortion and provides a seamless audio capture of high-speed transients -- a plus for recording drums or other percussion instruments.

A wide frequency response of 20 Hz to 20 kHz with a high-pass filter switch at 80 Hz will help you get a rich recording without picking up any unwanted low-end mud.
