Audio-Technica AT4022 Small-Diaphragm Condenser Microphone

This omnidirectional small-diaphragm condenser is a serious value! Capture transparent recordings with a flat frequency response all the way down to 20 Hz.

The low-profile AT4022 omnidirectional condenser recording mic is outstanding for piano, acoustic guitar, and other acoustic instruments. With a flat, extended frequency response and wide dynamic range ideal for critical studio and live applications, the AT4022 handles high SPLs with ease. The microphone's omnidirectional polar pattern preserves the "sound" of the recording location, delivers flat response and freedom from proximity effect. Its low-mass diaphragm improves transient response and reduces handling/mechanical noise transfer.
