• Meet the most critical acoustic requirements of professional recording
• Featuring direct-coupled balanced outputs
• Omni and cardioid head capsules are available separately
• Transformerless circuitry virtually eliminates low-frequency distortion
• Switchable 80 Hz hi-pass filter and 10 dB pad
• Rugged turned-brass microphone housing for enduring dependability

This versatile studio performer may be used with confidence in a wide variety of professional miking applications. Featuring direct-coupled balanced outputs for clean signals in high-output conditions, the microphone 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 AT4053b consists of two modular subassemblies: an AT4900b-48 body and an AT4053b-EL hypercardioid head capsule (both available separately). Additional interchangeable capsules are available in omnidirectional (AT4049b-EL) and cardioid (AT4051b-EL).
