AT4033/CL: Under the Hood

  1. The 2-micron-thick, vapor-deposited gold diaphragm undergoes a five-step aging process so the optimum characteristics achieved remain constant over years of use


  2. Precision-machined, nickel-plated brass, acoustic element baffle provides enhanced element stability and optimal sensitivity


  3. Floating-construction capsule assembly provides isolation from noise and vibration


  4. Open acoustical environment of the symmetrical housing assembly minimizes unwanted internal reflections


  5. Transformerless circuitry virtually eliminates low-frequency distortion and provides superior correlation of highspeed transients


  6. State-of-the art surface-mount electronics ensure compliance with A-Ts stringent consistency and reliability standards


This is the side-address studio condenser that broke the US$1000-barrier in its class. The classic edition of the legendary AT4033, the AT4033/CL is a studio classic and bluegrass favorite. From vocals to drum overheads, from woodwind sections to guitar cabinets and on-air announcing, the AT4033/CL is a microphone of many talents as useful on stage and in a broadcast facility as it is in the recording studio.
