Audio Technica AT4033 Condenser Microphone

AUDIO-TECHNICA AT4033 The AT4033 has a cardioid pattern which is preferred for 90% of all studio work. The response is unusually at between 20Hz and 20kHz. The capsule utilises vapour deposits of pure gold onto a specially contoured large diaphragm which is then aged through a five step process to ensure absolute long term stability. The capsule is the more recently developed fixed charge back plate permanently polarised variety. The design is more tolerant to moisture which can cause low frequency rumbles on older high voltage polarisation designs. This is a useful consideration when used for vocal recordings where water vapour from the breath can create condensation on the capsule. Sonic integrity is maintained by the inclusion of a transformerless output stage. The 4033 includes a switchable 10dB attenuator and is able to handle SPLs as high as 147dB. Another switch provides bass roll off below 80Hz to minimise unwanted noises.
