The Audio-Technica AT4053B-EL Cardioid head capsule is a modular component of the Audio-Technica AT4053B, AT4049B, and AT4951B Condenser Microphone systems. The AT4053B-EL is one of several capsules designed to work with the Audio-Technica AT4900b-48 microphone body. It is recommended for professional recording and critical applications in broadcast. The 4053b-EL has fast response to transients and contributes to the open, transparent reproduction of even the most difficult-to-capture instruments.
Works With The Audio-Technica AT4053b, AT4049b, and AT4951b Condenser Microphone systems.
Specially engineered to meet the most critical acoustic requirements of professional recording, broadcast and sound reinforcement
Hypercardioid polar pattern reduces pickup of sounds from the sides and rear, improving isolation of desired sound source
Direct-coupled, balanced output results in a clean signal even under high-output conditions
Transformerless circuitry virtually eliminates low-frequency distortion and provides superior correlation of high-speed transients
Switchable 80 Hz hi-pass filter and 10 dB pad
Rugged turned-brass microphone housing for enduring dependability
State-of-the-art design and manufacturing techniques ensure compliance with A-T's stringent consistency and reliability standards
RoHS-compliant—free from all substances specified in the EU directive on the reduction of hazardous substances (RoHS)
The excellent rear rejection of the AT5053B's hypercardioid pattern makes it great for live sound instrument recording, where additional rear-rejection is required.
