Great for Hip Hop Vocals

By David Bilske

from Undisclosed

Comments about Audio-Technica AT4040 Large-Diaphragm Studio Condenser Mic:

Just picked up this mic and it was worth every penny.

Really crisp, clean vocals when using this mic. With an exciter equalization and some compression you can have it sounding like professional quality.

Comes with a shockmount and a pretty decent carrying case.

Even when I do upgrade, I'm probably going to keep this one around to add some character to my mixes.

Comments about Audio-Technica AT4040 Large-Diaphragm Studio Condenser Mic:

Has great sound, better than the old AT4033, made very well. Good deal for the price. A high end microphone for the price of a low end one.
