The AT4060a combines warm, round vintage tone with a dynamic range that far exceeds that of other tube microphones. Coupled to its high SPL capabilities, the AT4060a is capable of capturing everything from the subtlest nuances of vocal and instrumental performances to high-powered guitar cabinets. The new version of the microphone also benefits from a newly designed power supply unit (AT8560), engineered for improved performance and lower noise.
At Prolight + Sound
show 2014, Frankfurt, Audio-Technica announced the re-introduction of its modern classic AT4060a tube microphone. Originally released in the late 1990s, the tube-powered cardioid condenser microphone is back by poular demand of both retailers and consumers.
Created to deliver perfect performance for many years, the AT4060’s two-micron-thick, vapour-deposited gold diaphragms undergo a five-step aging process to ensure constant, consistent performance, while the dual-diaphragm capsule design maintains polar pattern definition across the full frequency range of the microphone.
Featuring a hand-selected, individually tested and aged Sovtek 6922 tube, the AT4060 achieves the coveted, classic sound of tube design without compromising the specification standards required for the most demanding modern recording situations.
The AT4060 ships with the AT8560 power supply, rack mount adaptors for the power supply, AT8447 shock mount, 10m cable with 6-pin XLR-type connectors for use between microphone and power supply and protective carrying case.
