Solid, big and bold. This mic has a lot of mojo.

Summary: This is one thick mic. Absolutely love it. AT tried to recreate a U47 and in turn, created their own beast. Looks, feels and sounds great! For the price, there is some new competition, but there will always be a place in my mic locker for one of these, probably two.
Summary: I bought this Mic for more than one application so it's not a one trick pony. Great on a kick drum which was the #1 reason for this mic. For the price you get close to the sound of a vintage fet47 used on countless albums. Also use this mic on Bass cabs and some vocals work well with it.
Summary: Very correct sound. The mic is very serious. Not quite universal. Perfectly sound on the high female vocals. At the sound feels light compression as in the old Neumann. But unlike the old classic Neumann U87 sound a little digital painting is easy, but still very close in quality. Sounds great microphone for recording with a guitar cabinet. Here, it has no equal in the range of $ 1000 and more. And, most importantly, made in Japan.
AT4047 industry standard & great addition to the studio

Summary: Prior to purchasing the AT 4047 I had heard great things about it's versatility and recently had heard it in action as a stereo pair on drums. It blew me away as a great, clean mic that captured the wide spectrum of frequencies the drum kit throw at an engineer. In my first session with it I used it as a double to a SM 57 for stereo mic'ing a Fender Deluxe guitar amp and loved the way it grabbed the essence of the electric guitar without making it too dark or too bright.
Summary: This mic is an absolute winner. It sounds incredible on everything that I have tried it on. I'm very happy with it in every way except I have never been a fan of the audio technica shock mount. It's not super easy to get the mic in and out and the shock mount itself prevents the user from placing the mic directly next to an amp or whatever the source is. The closest you can get is about an inch away.
Excerpt: 1 year Before I tried: AT4033 AKG C451 Oktava MK12 I hesitated before investing in the AT4047. These are the opinions of Backle that made me switch and I thank him. I record vocal ensembles and I'm overwhelmed with the result. With similar sets as a singer, I had participated in recordings made by pros and I...
Excerpt: I used to microwave for about 8 months only way of making hip-hop rap (mine of course) Before I entered the micro-level, but it was before! + If I like the most is of course its restitution, namely that for the moment I do not have a preamp worthy to name when it is connected to my "Tc impact" my time and it makes m...
Excerpt: 4047- a great mic. I love Hard rock/heavy guitar sounds like Sevendust, Korn, Vai, Buckethead, Zakk, Satriani. This mic is flat out awesome in this area. I put it right up 1" from the grill and receive a slammin' sound with very little work on mic placement. It gives the combination of clarity and brutality that is so hard to find in distorted g...
