Comments about Audio-Technica AT5040 Cardioid Condenser Microphone:
Used the 5040 for a new record and it was absolutely amazing! The intimacy of this mic is almost embarrassing. I believe it actually picked up some of the notes I was only thinking about singing. Best ever.

Q:Is this a good mic to use with an acapella men's quartet in a live setting?
A:In my opinion, no it would not be. This is a studio vocal microphone designed for recording a single vocalist. The accuracy this application requires is best obtained by a microphone that is rather directional. Although it is listed as having a cardioid type pickup pattern, the 5040 performs more like a hypercardioid pattern microphone at frequencies above 1 kHz. This smaller acceptance angle at the higher frequencies requires the vocalist to stay more on axis as the tone of their voice may change as they get further and further off axis.
Q:Where can i buy the 5040?
A:To check availability of the AT5040 Cardioid Condenser Microphone, Audio-Technica offers an Authorized Dealer List and Locator for your convenience at www.audio-technica.com.
