Following the AT5040 vocal microphone and AT5045 condenser instrument microphone, Audio-Technica promises ‘exceptional dynamic performance’ from the new AT5047 cardioid condenser mic.
Based on the four rectangular diaphragm design of the AT5040, the AT5047 is a cardioid condenser with a transformer-coupled output that delivers a noticeably smooth sonic character and ensures high SPL handling without the risk of overloading mic preamps or console inputs. With its ability to cope with wide variation in dynamic range, the new model is designed for outstanding performance on everything from brushed snare drums to powerful vocals, guitar amps to brass instruments.
In common with the rest of the 50 Series, the AT5047 is hand-assembled and crafted from aluminium and brass, with an advanced internal shockmount that decouples the capsule from the microphone body. The custom-designed AT8480 mount, included with the AT5047, also ensures isolation from knocks and transmitted vibrations in the studio.
Supplied in a hard-shell carry case with die-cut foam compartments, the AT5047 has a recommended retail price of £3,499/€,3999 inc VAT and will be available in Europe from summer 2017.
