" Very good quality / price ratio" - rammanson

Audiofanzine
4 April 2014
  • Excerpt: I use it for 4 years, I pricipalement used for voice (and guttural vocals). I happened to use a guitar amp to use saturated and also overhead. That is clearly the song that was made that micro, very accurate, transparent enough, lack of depth can be and is a hollow in the top easy to fix with a good preamp or mix medium. <...

  • Excerpt: I used it for 2-3 records vocals and guitars. I have an AT 2020 and now langevin CR 2001. Micro who are not in the same range and as we could expect if the AT 2020 is well below langevin and CR 2001 is well above the AT 4040. The 4040 AT gives a sound a bit muffled, it puts everything into the background, so it see...

" Excellent versatile choice" - Mauser

Audiofanzine
15 April 2011
  • Excerpt: I use it for 3 years (the previous pair was stolen stereo ...), mainly couple at first, then gradually, and happily, for the live. In overheads, excellent record in the studio but too sensitive for the live. On a Leslie, a real treat! On occasional solo (clarinet, accordion, vocals, violin ...), excellent record but again...

"Cheap Condenser with quality skills!" - mooseherman

1 December 2010
  • Excerpt: I like this microphone, for the price it's really pretty awesome. As another reviewer mentioned, it's much better than most LDC mics in its price range as it doesn't have the harsh sound that those do. I like to use it at home more than in the actual studio, as the place I work has better mics than this. If I was going to use this microphone, I'...

  • Excerpt: I have been using a pair of these for a long time as drum room mics, and ambient mics for various other purposes. I personally find the transient response on these mics to be phenomenal despite the deceivingly low price tag. The sound overall is very rich and and full. You don't get that harsh, cheap sound that you get on many other large dia...

  • Excerpt: I use it for several months. It is good on acoustic instruments, an amp face (1m derrire an SM 58) is well complte trs dynamic microphone providing the precision and brilliance, it can be used a can do anything, even the voices. It is true that one can not find the dynamics of a big fat Neumann or AKG good, but it is prcis trs, be careful becaus...

  • Excerpt: I for one year. Trs good value quality / price. I coupled with a pre-amp behringer lamps T-1953 and I admit that is your exact surpenant. Of course this is not a Neumann or a pre-amp avalon but for a budget of less than € 500 you can have the hardware and enjoyable trs good quality for his home studio and especially witho...
