The AT4022 Omnidirectional Condenser Microphone from Audio-Technica features a low-profile design and a small-diaphragm condenser element. The microphone's sensitivity, frequency response, and SPL capabilities allow for use with speaker cabinets, vocals, percussion instruments, drums, and spot placement on guitars, and stringed instruments. The omnidirectional polar pattern provides a wide pickup area and preserves the integrity of the signal. An 80 Hz high-pass filter switch reduces low frequencies and associated noise, and a -10 dB Pad switch provides additional headroom and minimizes distortion when capturing transient (peaking) audio signals. The package includes microphone stand clamp, a windscreen, and a protective carrying case.
