This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful. "THIS IS A GREAT AT SERIES MIC FROM AUDIO TECHNICA !!"
Sound: this is super vocal and acoustic guitar mic.it has a full sound.airy highs natural mids and beautiful full lows. It's basically an improved at4033-has better specs!!! Feature: has a 10 db attenuator and 80 hz high pass. Quality: top notch quality in the at4040. I'll compare this mic to anything out there costing alot more. This mic is made in JAPAN. We all know that quality is what comes out of there- from cars to you name it!! Value: a great value.it is a Japanese built product.No wonder it's terrific.the 2 I bought sound like a matched pair !! Manufacturer Support: they're real helpful.I had a question on getting some extra mic mounts and they were great! The Wow Factor: i own 2 of them. Overall: this mic sounds as good as mics that are alot more in price. I compared it to the Blue Blueberry,the Neumann tlm103, and the Rode NTK. In my opinion it outperforms them all on vocals-and is as good on acoustic guitar.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
