Audio-Technica AT4047/SV
The at4047 is a condenser microphone. It is for studio applications, which can be aplenty with this diverse tool. There is a handy -10 pad on the mic, allowing you to place it right up on the grille of a loud amp or front and center on a kick drum. It also has an option for rolling off the low end, which is always a great resource for eliminating mud in a recording situation.


4047- a great mic. I love Hard rock/heavy guitar sounds like Sevendust, Korn, Vai, Buckethead, Zakk, Satriani. This mic is flat out awesome in this area. I put it right up 1" from the grill and receive a slammin' sound with very little work on mic placement. It gives the combination of clarity and brutality that is so hard to find in distorted guitars. Sometimes I'll pair it up with a 57, or borrow a buddy's royer 121. Often it sounds fantastic by itself, as I like to multitrack rhythm guitars. It is awesome for detuned guitars. This mic was the basis for recent Korn discs- it sounds great on guitars, bass cabs, kick drum. I've recently discovered that I like it better on vocals than my tube Studio Projects T3; so the T3 was sold off. It has a low end presence combined with a clarity on the top end (without that shrilly cheap feel that my 4033 gives, since sold). I can't believe how cheap I got it (used), I'll buy another one at market price in a heartbeat. If you love heavy guitars and are depressed about how much or how brittle a royer 121 is, and you're tired of the 57 sound (always a fallback acceeptable tone) you simply must find try the 4047. This is the first mic I grab when micing up my Ampeg bass stack- it is perfect for those clear low frequencies. The 4047 sounds killer on toms as well, sometimes i'll just stick this one on the rack to capture two toms and the results are fantastic- huge and beefy, with plenty of snap to cut right through a mix. Awesome on the floor tom, gives that huge King Kong sound. Kick drums can benefit by placing this a foot away from the soundhole. This is a great room mic for drums; typically mics on this price level have an exaggerated high end that can be abrasive and annoying, especially after multiple tracks. Darker mics tend to muddy things up...this 4047 delivers dark without mud, it's a real organic sounding level of quality. I would purchase these mic again in a heartbeat, as it has so many applications and they all sound top level. Stranded on a desert island? This is the mic!

Condenser cardioid directivity, electronic FET output transformer. Sensitivity 18 mV / Pa. 9 dBA self-noise. 2 switches: attnuateur 10 dB high-pass filter 80 Hz.
It particulirement parat me silent and sensitive compared my other mics.
Comes with its supspension beautifully made but not practical: you have an elastic casing to fit the mic and once in place, we no longer access to the two switches. Storage Bote black leatherette with foam interior but for the microphone only: and suspension, it makes what?


I just did a aussitt the package reu outlet. In AB 1 m from a baby grand piano. Two days before, I had the reu lectrets of Avenson. Compared with Oktava MK-012, the gain in transparency was empty. But with the 4047, I think I went a step further: the physical presence of the sound is standard! I did not stain particulire not what the left prsager answers curve frquence that without being flat is wise enough for this type of microphone. So I put on 10 for the registry renewal classical piano. To be cohrent, I'll go down the note of Avenson 9 and that of Oktava 8.
EDIT: I change my mind back a month later. I must have mouths ears when I test the first time and i was fallen under the spell of his vintage Audi Technica declares wanting up with their 4047. Because color, y'en lot: warm sound! But my piano, it's not too much need. I tried two or three times, then after a while I tell myself that it is not possible to continue and I replace 4047 by Avenson. Bon does not prevent these microphones have class. If you like the warmth of vintage sound, go ahead, you will not due.
Edit: 2 years after. I have always and I like them. To listen to them on the piano and compare a pair of AKG C414B-XLS a priori ADAPTS this use:

Before I tried: AT4033 AKG C451 Oktava MK12

I hesitated before investing in the AT4047. These are the opinions of Backle that made me switch and I thank him.
I record vocal ensembles and I'm overwhelmed with the result. With similar sets as a singer, I had participated in recordings made by pros and I was always disappointed by the sound. With the 4047 I finally heard what I dreamed ... presence, a dynamic, smooth ... Fabulous. You can hear samples on
or search my name (bruno Houver). All that is 2014 is recorded with a pair of 4047 before it's 4033. I used a screen to reduce the return from the rear, the acoustics of the place is weird.
The voices are perfectly restored, never garish but with all the details.
I am now looking for extra microphones when I need to clarify a bit more of a desk.
Yes I do it again this choice without any doubt. Maybe the MP model, but we do not find occasion.
Soon I'm going to record very large professional violin ... to follow so

Sky Fu's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" One notch above ..."

Audio-Technica AT4047/SV
Microphone jack singing, plugged into the preamp of my "Tc Impact", positioned in an untreated room, only a reflector SE.


I used to microwave for about 8 months only way of making hip-hop rap (mine of course)

Before I entered the micro-level, but it was before!

+ If I like the most is of course its restitution, namely that for the moment I do not have a preamp worthy to name when it is connected to my "Tc impact" my time and it makes me seem already not bad!

+ I would also say that the suspension seem to me very well (to see the time because the "elastic" which take the microphone remains elastic)

- If I like the least (but that seems normal), is that if micro is very good indeed my way, but in his own way very well, it says even with the low cut've activated it tends to force serious, in my case about 200hz. So here we say "do not worry I will break this effect back to" yes, but not because a moment is all it is your room that untreated fucks brothel!

The price / quality ratio is very good for me, it says to those who would pass from one range to be entered and all other AT micro plus "almost pro" must not forget that a good microphone is all that is prendras much better, but all is not as well! So remember to treat your room and making his or mix before breaking your piggy bank for the gear "+ pro", and finally I said I said nothing ca ...

If I would be choice ... Probably I would say yes this a little acoustic correction before.

A studio you ...
