    The AT8031 is an all-purpose condenser microphone ideal for interviews, voice-overs and air studio, as well as for vocals, overheads, piano and strings. The microphone requires 11V to 52V phantom power or a 1.5V AA battery for operation. A battery need not be in place for phantom power operation. The cardioid polar pattern of the microphone is more sensitive to sound originating directly in front of the element, making it useful for controlling feedback, reducing pickup of unwanted sounds and providing isolation between performers.
    The output of the microphone is a 3-pin XLRM-type connector. A switch permits choice of flat response or low-frequency roll-off (via
    integral 80 Hz high-pass filter) to help control undesired ambient noise.
    The microphone is enclosed in a rugged housing. The included AT8405a stand clamp permits mounting on any microphone stand with 5/8"-27 threads. A windscreen, a battery and a soft protective pouch are also included.
