Ideal for drum overheads, acoustic guitar, piano, horns and under snare, the AT4041 delivers a smooth, extended frequency response with a slight rise occurring in the high-frequency region. Transformerless circuitry virtually eliminates low-frequency distortion and provides superior correlation of high-speed transients. Low-mass diaphragm improves transient response, increases response bandwidth and reduces handling and mechanical noise transfer. State-of-the-art design and manufacturing techniques ensure compliance with A-T's stringent consistency and reliability standards. Switchable hi-pass filter and rugged turned-brass microphone housing. Included accessories: AT8405 stand clamp; foam windscreen; protective case.

Versatile and affordable.


I love these mics and use them for a variety of applications. Overhead mics for use on a drum kit. Excellent choir mics. Ambient room / audience mics. Great for acoustic piano and many other acoustic instruments. My favorite small diaphram condenser mic. Proper placement of a pair of these mics will give you excellent reproduction of small, medium and large ensembles. Any serious recording engineer whether in-studio or on-location will benefit greatly by having these babies in your toolbox. I encourage you to experiment.

A recording basic.


They're amazing. I've relied on my pair of 4041's since 2001 and alongside a couple of Neumann184's have never left my side, in fact when I need more mid to high range, I prefer them over the pricey but "choclatey" Neumann's. "The girls" have recorded choirs, drums (close and overhead), glockenspiels, guitars, podcasts, birds, grass and airshows and most recently after 15 years of reliable service, they've been on interview/focus group duty recording a group of 8 people to 2 cams, and really impressed an agency with their small size on video and their large and sturdy sound which falls off smoothly when interviewees were placed fairly equidistant. Of course in interview, they do pick up more ambience than the usual hypercardoid choice but for economy of kit and range of uses, I confidently recommend an AT4041 pair as basic kit for any audio setup.

Great Recording Mics


These are really fantastic mics for all sorts of recording applications. I have used them as drum overheads, room mics, choir mics and they have handled it all very well. They are not as bright or as harsh as other mics which makes them much more useful for things like vocals where too much high frequency is a problem. Great to buy them in the stereo pair.
