CardioidAudio-Technica AT4041

Cardioid Pencil Condenser Microphone

The AT4041 is a cardioid FET condenser microphone with an electret capsule.

The mic has a flat frequency response from 30Hz to 5kHz, with a presence peak (+3dB) above 10kHz.


The AT4041 is a rugged microphone housed in a case of turned brass with black chrome plating for durability and low reflectivity. The element back plate holds a fixed charge and has been aged to provide energy stabilization. The surface of the back plate is precision milled to ensure maximum charge linearity, resulting in a reduction in both frequency response peaks and diaphragm break-up distortion.

The mic has a transformerless output circuit.

It ships with a mic clip, foam windscreen, and carrying case.
