  • Overview


    To celebrate Audio-Technica’s 50th Anniversary, A-T has introduced a special limited edition AT4050URUSHI Anniversary Microphone with hand-painted red Japanese maple leaves in urushi lacquer. A unique serial number is etched on the surface of each AT4050URUSHI model. The limited edition offering comes with a beautifully crafted wooden carrying case.

    With three switchable polar patterns, the large-diaphragm Audio-Technica AT4050/LE exhibits a remarkable combination of qualities: high-SPL capability with transparent and airy uppers/mids complemented by rich low-end qualities. Its dual large diaphragms are gold-vaporized and aged for consistent, outstanding performance. A precision-machined, nickel-plated brass acoustic element baffle provides rock-solid element stability and exceptional sensitivity.

    Ideal for studio use and live sound productions with vocals, piano, strings, drum overheads, guitar amps, and more.

    Audio-Technica’s AT4050URUSHI. For performance that legends are made of.
