Great Price, Great Product

  • Excerpt: Definitely a good purchase, I was looking at one of the rode mics that was a little more pricey. The quality definitely outweighed the rode and was cheaper... I use it for tracking vocals and acoustic guitar, really clear and warm tone, can't really fault it, it's a good like mic for my mini studio in my apartment.
  • Pros: Clear Sound, Easy To Use, Great value

  • Excerpt: just got it and started recording. Seems clear, however dealing with a high frequency that is a little ringy.. may be because my inputs are high.

"Very good value for money"

4 April 2014
  • Excerpt: I've used it for 4 years, mainly for vocals. I have also used it to record a distortion guitar amp, as well as for overheads. This mic was obviously conceived for vocals, it's very precise, quite transparent, it may lack some depth and it has a slope in the high mids, which can easily be corrected with a good preamp or duri...

  • 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...

  • Excerpt: I use it for years, occasionally. Good mic for everything, the pad and low cut are very useful very straight, very detailed, cold and surgical limits. Beau med low, yet firm enough c for the price very good.

"Cheap Condenser with quality skills!"

  • 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 a year or so, I was able to listen cot other large membranes, C414 (2x more expensive), U87 (7/8x more expensive), it is doing really well. the ratio Q / P is remarkable, trs equilibrated on voice, impeccable in OH, even when pummeled below, works well on guitars, a xylophone, ... short, versatile enough, I had no opportunity of ser...
