The AT5040 Cardioid Condenser Microphone by Audio-Technica is designed as a vocal microphone and features a smooth top end with controlled sibilance. It also offers fast transient response, making it suitable for acoustic instruments, such as piano, guitar, strings, and saxophone. The microphone employs a four-part rectangular element to provide purity of sound. Each of the four parts function together and provide a surface area twice the size of a standard 2.54 cm circular diaphragm. There is an advanced internal shockmounting system, effectively decoupling the capsule from the housing for vibration-free performance. The microphone includes a shockmount for additional isolation. The AT5040 is hand assembled and inspected for quality control and is enclosed in an aluminium and brass housing for durability.
