Cardioid condenser mic
This hand-built AT5040 side-address condenser offers musical high-fidelity performance, with realism and depth, presence and purity of sound. It employs four ultra-thin rectangular diaphragms that function together as a single high-performance element. By using four diaphragms as a single capsule, the AT5040 achieves large surface area without increased weight and decreased transient response. An internal shock mounting decouples the capsule from the microphone body.
