Product Description for the Audio Technica AT4033/CL Side Address Mic

The classic edition of the legendary AT4033 microphone, the side-address AT4033/CL offers low-noise, symmetrical, transformerless circuitry that results in exceptional transient response and clean output signals. A studio classic and bluegrass favorite, the AT4033/CL cardioid studio condenser is the microphone that broke the US$1000-barrier in its class. A strong up-front presence characterizes the sonic signature of this 40 Series pro-audio classic. The AT4033/CL’s 80Hz high-pass filter easily switches between flat frequency response and a low-end roll-off that diminishes ambient noise and popping with closely-miked vocals.


  • Transformerless circuitry virtually eliminates low-frequency distortion and provides superior correlation of high-speed transients
  • Precision-machined, nickel-plated brass, acoustic element baffle provides enhanced element stability and optimal sensitivity
  • The 2-micron-thick, vapor-deposited gold diaphragm undergoes a five-step aging process so that the optimum characteristics achieved remain constant over years of use
  • Floating-construction capsule assembly provides isolation from noise and vibration
  • Open acoustical environment of the symmetrical housing assembly minimizes unwanted internal reflections
  • State-of-the-art surface-mount electronics ensure compliance with A-T's stringent consistency and reliability standards

Can\'t beat this for the money
Review by listeningroomfargo
The 4033 is a mic that has earned a reputation as a favorite for Bluegrass bands. It outperforms microphones costing many times more.

This microphone was an instant hit when AT introduced it - it broke the $1000 mark in side address condenser mics. A few years later they decided to discontinue it to make way for new \"progress.\" Musicians threw a fit and demanded they bring it back! It used to be just a 4033 - now it is a 4033 CL (classic).

We use this for bluegrass bands and they love us when they see it come out of the mic chest. You won\'t be able to use floor monitors when using this microphone indoors. Bluegrass players don\'t seem to mind!

We have done some very nice recordings using this microphone. Properly set, you can record several instruments and vocalists and end up with a perfect mix. (Posted on 9/30/10)
