Las Vegas (April 25, 2006)–Audio-Technica U.S., Inc. announced at the NAB Convention, going on this week, that it’s reduced the price of its AT3060 Phantom-powered Tube Microphone. The AT3060 is now available with an estimated street price of $399 U.S. ($499 U.S. MSRP)–what the company called “the lowest price ever for vintage A-T tube sound.”
Designed for studio production, voice-overs, on-air and other critical broadcast applications, Audio-Technica’s AT3060 features a large-diaphragm cardioid condenser element, delivering high sensitivity and smooth sound with low overall noise levels, while a precision-machined, nickel-plated brass acoustic element baffle provides enhanced element stability and optimizes sensitivity. The tube used in each AT3060 is hand selected and aged to maintain peak performance, and the tube itself is shock-mounted to dampen mechanically induced vibration. The AT3060 operates on standard 48V phantom power.
Electronically, the AT3060 includes a large coupling transformer to provide superior linearity at low frequencies, while precision valve design delivers the traditional warmth of the classic tube microphones. The AT3060 comes with the AT8458 shock mount to provide superior isolation, and a protective pouch.
