The classic edition of the legendary AT4033 microphone, the side-address AT4033/CL offers low-noise, symmetrical, transformerless circuitry that results in exceptional transient response and clean output signals. A studio classic and bluegrass favorite, the AT4033/CL cardioid studio condenser is the microphone that broke the US$1000-barrier in its class. A strong up-front presence characterizes the sonic signature of this 40 Series pro-audio classic. The AT4033/CL's 80Hz high-pass filter easily switches between flat frequency response and a low-end roll-off that diminishes ambient noise and popping with closely-miked vocals.

 
  • Features

    • Transformerless circuitry virtually eliminates low-frequency distortion and provides superior correlation of high-speed transients
    • Precision-machined, nickel-plated brass, acoustic element baffle provides enhanced element stability and optimal sensitivity
    • The 2-micron-thick, vapor-deposited gold diaphragm undergoes a five-step aging process so that the optimum characteristics achieved remain constant over years of use
    • Floating-construction capsule assembly provides isolation from noise and vibration
    • Open acoustical environment of the symmetrical housing assembly minimizes unwanted internal reflections
    • State-of-the-art surface-mount electronics ensure compliance with A-T's stringent consistency and reliability standards

    Comments about AUDIO-TECHNICA Audio Technica 4033 Cardioid Studio Condenser Mic:

    I've been using this mic for 20 years, to record self-improvement albums. I wanted something that made my voice sound like those great radio and television announcers - intimate, powerful, great presence, warmth, power. With a little EQ and some compression in post (post production) it does exactly that.

    In 1990 we had an opportunity to record an album for Nightingale Conant, and I spent a lot of time talking with their recording engineer. We used an AKG 414C, which is supposed to be one of the best mics for recording a male voice. When I got home, I compared the recordings I made in the Nightingale studio with the recordings in my home studio and to me they sound equally good.

    The only difference I could hear - they leave more bass than I do. I EQ'd it out because we were still delivering the product on audio cassettes, and the sound was more clear when there was less bass.

    I've done a lot of recording with this mic, in my home studio, and it has always come through for me. I recommend it highly.

        Comments about AUDIO-TECHNICA Audio Technica 4033 Cardioid Studio Condenser Mic:

        I've had one fo these in the cabinet for about 15 years (?!) now. It was my "go to" mic for quite a while, now it's simply for secondary use, ambient and the like. Noise floor is a little bit high, but you have to spend twice the $ to do much better. If you use a good mic-pre, you'll be all set (avoid the pre's that are built in to many mixers, but a stand alone, it's worth the $).

        For primary vocals, it has a bit of a bump in the 4-5k range, so you get some "up front" presence. Good for lead vocals.

        The only improvement I might make is to sell it at a lower price. HA!
