The AT4047/MP Cardioid Condenser Microphone from Audio Technica delivers a rich, vintage sound for F.E.T. (non-tube) microphones in an advanced, technologically up-to-date build. This modern mic gets its classic sound from a transformer-coupled output and a specially-tuned element. The retro effect is rounded out by a vintage-style look complete with a silver-matte finish on the mic and its included shock mount.

Boasting a wide dynamic range, exceptionally low self-noise, and high SPL capability, the AT4047/MP sports a multi-pattern design with three selectable polar patterns: cardioid, figure-eight, and omnidirectional. A precision-engineered acoustic element baffle of nickel-plated brass helps enhance the element’s stability and increase sound sensitivity, while the microphone’s open acoustical environment and symmetrical housing assembly minimize unwanted internal reflections. Also featured in this mic are an integrated 80 Hz high-pass filter and a 10 dB pad switch.

Versatile and reliable, this mic is specifically engineered for professional applications where acoustic excellence is critical, including studio recording, live broadcast, and sound reinforcement. It is great for a wide variety of uses, including vocals, strings, acoustic guitar, instrument ensembles, small choral groups, and voiceovers. The AT4047/SV comes with a custom AT8449a/SV shock mount for 5/8"-27 threaded stands—allowing for even better sound isolation—as well as a microphone dust cover for safe storage and a protective carrying case for secure transport. As with all Audio-Technica microphones, every AT4047/SV features innovative surface-mount electronics that meet stringent standards of consistency and reliability and boasts certification by the METAlliance (Music Engineering and Technology Alliance).
