Audio-Technica’s premier studio vocal microphone, the AT5040 represents a milestone in condenser design, offering remarkably musical high-fidelity
performance, with profound realism and depth, presence and purity of sound.
Designed as a first-choice vocal microphone, the AT5040 cardioid condenser features an extremely
smooth top end with controlled sibilance. Large-diaphragm characteristics and fast transient response also make it ideal for recording acoustic instruments such as piano, guitar, strings and saxophone.
Another key AT5040 design feature is advanced internal shock mounting that effectively decouples the capsule from the microphone body. For additional isolation, each AT5040 is also
provided with Audio-Technica’s innovative new AT8480 shock mount.
Every AT5040 is hand assembled and individually inspected for 100% quality control. Each microphone is
enclosed in an elegant housing of aluminum and brass with high-quality gray finish for durability and low reflectivity.
Discrete components have been selected for optimized
capsule performance; in fact, every aspect of the microphone has been carefully considered to minimize any effects on the audio signal.
