Audio-Technica AT4041SP Studio Pack

Outfit your studio with a pair of the best mics available from Audio-Technica. Includes 2 mics, 2 stand clamps, 2 windscreens and a wooden case.
The AT4041SP Studio Pack offers two AT4041 studio condenser microphones. Engineered to meet the most critical acoustic requirements of professional recording, broadcast and live sound, the AT4041 features a smooth, extended frequency response with a slight rise in the high-frequency region and a transformerless output for very high SPL-handling capability. The element back plate holds a fixed charge and has been aged to provide energy stabilization. The surface of the back plate is precision milled to ensure maximum charge linearity, resulting in a reduction in both frequency response peaks and diaphragm break-up distortion.

Includes:

- Two AT4041 cardioid condenser microphones
- Two AT8405a stand clamps
- Two AT8159 windscreens
- Protective wooden storage case.

Features:

- Smooth, extended frequency response with a slight rise occurring in the high-frequency region

"The True Acoustic Sound"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
There is no doubt I will supplement my 4041's with something else by AT ...
Sound
I have used the AT 3031's in the past, even for vocals... but the 4041's are the ideal solution for acoustic music... you want your acoustic guitar or mandolin to sound clean, clear and keep the purity of the instrument... the 4041 gives you that and more
Features
The only thing it came with was the stand adapter and wind screen...
Ease of Use
Plug and Play... it just doesn't get any easier...
Quality
as to the quality? If sound is any indication of the quality, it can't be beat. I've used Audio Technica for several years and it's the best bang for the buck out there anywhere
Value
The AT 4041 mic is beyond a doubt the best value for the dollar spend ...
Manufacturer Support
I've never had to use support on any of my AT products...
The Wow Factor
It was a practical addition to my current configuration.
