MGR/AlexV's review"Audio-Technica 4033"

Audio-Technica AT4033
The Audio-Technica 4033 is a large diaphragm cardiod condenser mic. I am a student, musician, writer, and pretty good line dancer residing in beautiful Nashville, TN. I've been a drummer and guitar player on and off for the past 10 years of my life and have began engineering and producing in the past 4. I currently play drums for the band Brookline and you can see me rockin' an Orange County Drum and Percussion or Mapex kit decked out with Zildjian K Hybrids.

I bought a pair of these mics a few years back for right around $400 a piece from Sweetwater. I was wanting to expand my mic catalog at home and have a good stereo pair of large-diaphragm condensers

The 4033 sounds great on just about anything. I use this at home on my acoustic guitar all the time and bring it to any studio I know I'll be tracking guitar at. I have done many 'blind' mic shootouts with this mic in line with others such as the U87, 147, 414, and even a 49 and this came up on top!

This mic is tough! It has been banged and bruised over the past few years and still sounds great and never suffered any damage. It is one of the only large-diaphragms that actually comes with a solid shock mount!

Bottom Line? Whether your tracking in your living room or on Music Row with the big dogs, this mic is a must have! It sounds incredible and stands up next to mics over 5 times it's price!

On first listen, an increase in the acute setting, is visible, the rest of the spectrum is reproduced with a "transparency" amazing. The quality / price ratio is excellent and the choice is again.

Audio-Technica AT4033
It's a song that gives micro sound of a scratching folk dingo, I guess any instrument is returned as well. Bought second-hand ', I do not never part because it gives my voice a metallic appearance that I do not want to lose, no microphone is the sound there.
It is a condenser mic if I remember correctly, therefore the headphone of course, but hey, great tool.


I have since 2001 I believe, be 10 years, I have not tried it and I bought it from view on the net, I did well, he's great at the time I ' had paid occas' almost € 400, but it's worth.
The big plus is its sound, little more is the sound of the guitar folk, genial, less is certain is that he must leave the artillery (pop filter, phantom power supply, foot , elastic suspension ...) but anyway all good micro has this disadvantage, if the sound does not.

Mixed micro typed song. Large-diaphragm condenser microphone. 1 single directivity (cardio) sufficient for most users. Pad and low cut.


I have since 2007, I used a very large number of microphones in any price range who worked in the studio in a professional way.
Pros: For the price, Audio Technica does not lower the quality, but removes the options. In this case it is the ability to change keys. Indeed, for this option must take two capsule and therefore nearly double the price of the microphone. The AT4033 is an AT 4050 on which there is no selector keys. Suffice to say that the sound is very clean, a little flattered and crystalline. Very suitable for modern or taken voice snapping guitars (metal for example). The best thing is to try it.

It's good stuff.

Cons: Lack of torque selector for MS or equity ROOM.

Excellent value for money, a choice that I will ever 4,5,6,7 times, and as many times as it takes. But hey, I like my park varied microphone.

Trs condenser microphone (too?) Versatile. I have 8 years (one of my first wages passsl in it, so think the memory!).


Here I will not add much normment what t said before, but I "plussoie" as they say. It works well on trs trs voices (including fminines) for her (all of the same lightweight) ct "U87".

I used quite often in overhead on batteries in acoustic diffrent trs, I almost never of the t rsultat.

One could blame him a lightweight prsque lack of personality as it is Fidler. So if you Searching for "strange" or "vintage", go your way, or do it through some chose.Mais for balance and neutrality is trs trs well. As it begins to be old (my first "real" Micral) I tend not out for large okaz because I flip it to the ide dteriore! (Even when it is designed).

Dception the only experience I had with this Micral is its unique directivity which limits the possibilities :-( (

But his great ERRF 4060 offers the other figures I think.

Micro Audio Technica AT 4033


I use the microwave for 3 years or so, I could compare it to a direct Manir cu41 SANKEN worth all of the same 3000euros, a well-U87 sr, and many other of the microphones genre.
I must say that this micro m'pate, it is versatile, easy to work and put a hand to the sharp correction, I have never heard the final mix the diffrence between this small AT4033 nothing at all, plus microphones and other deficits.
I speak particularly well voice recording sr. When I plug the same "thing" in AVALON vt737sp what I think (and even sr) is important. However, I ct a, a envoice of mindprint and your exact trs is good. Although sr correction and compression are not of the same ilk ..... but hey, the price is not the m ^ me either.
It is a micro price indisputable quality report
