A true jewel of Audio-Technica in the 90s, reinvented by popular demand in the industry. The AT4060a is a large-diaphragm cardioid condenser tube microphone, designed for use in the most demanding studio applications. Each hand-selected tube is individually aged and tested, then employed in a uniquely configured circuit for enhanced tube performance. Specially tuned elements improve dynamic range and the allow the AT4060a to handle high SPLs (up to 150dB) without sacrificing high-frequency characteristics. A floating-construction mounting of the elements provides isolation from noise and vibration. The AT4060a operates in conjunction with the included tube microphone powering unit, featuring low-impedance output and a ground-lift switch.
