Audio Technica AT4050/CM5
multi-pattern condenser x3
Probably the most versatile microphone currently made. Small diaphragm in a large-capsule housing. Sounds great on almost any source. Notable features include low noise, high output, high SPL tolerance, high-pass filter, and cardioid, omni, or bidirectional pickup patterns. Useful with shockmounts or Audio Technica clips for exceptionally close-miking situations or coincident microphone arrangements.
