HAS SOME MARKS AND A FEW SCRATCHES FROM USE. SEE PICS FOR HELP WITH CONDITION AND WHAT IS INCLUDED. AT4040 is another masterpiece from Audio-Technica sitting in the middle-end price range. It is a large diaphragm, condenser mic with a cardioid pick-up pattern and a smooth, uncolored sound.
This mic will work for any situations, both for home and professional studios alike. Conversations or singing, instruments, percussions or drums theres nothing it cannot handle. With the pad on, it can record even the loudest sounds with minimum distortion. A specification of maximum SPL is 155 dB, which is probably just enough to handle a shotgun burst or a jet take-off.Audio-Technica seems to really excel at making quality condenser mics. They already have a number of low-end models that perform quite well, so a more expensive AT4040 set our expectations on high.
After conducting a couple of tests, the results got us impressed: the difference was quite obvious! This mic has an excellent sensitivity as well as noise characteristics; the sound response is also crystal clear. As it is a large diaphragm microphone, it naturally gets warmer towards bottom end. Of course, it is not Neumann but the sound quality is still very nice! AT4040 microphone is fairly massive, measuring 6.7 inches in length and 2.1 inches in diameter.It comes with its own shock mount and overall it is a solid build. I especially liked this shock mount, although installing it can be a little bit tricky. Like many other condenser microphones, it comes with two standard controls: a minus dB pad to reduce sensitivity, and a low frequency roll-off. Though as it handles the loud sounds naturally, you will hardly ever be using that pad.
