Showing 1-10 of 16
Solid, big and bold. This mic has a lot of mojo.
6 January 2012
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.
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.
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.
Excerpt: 're all already said OVERALL OPINION 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.
Excerpt: The at4047 is a condenser microphone. It is for studio applications, which can be aplenty with this diverse tool. There is a handy -10 pad on the mic, allowing you to place it right up on the grille of a loud amp or front and center on a kick drum.
