Record vocals, interviews, and speeches with ease with Audio-Technica BP40 Large Diaphragm Dynamic Broadcast Microphone. This optimised microphone features a hyper-cardioid polar pattern that ensures high-sensitivity sound pickup for replicating crisp vocals well-suited for broadcasting applications. It has a humbucker voice coil that delivers more natural and distortion-free sound by preventing electromagnetic interference (EMI). Its floating edge design offers maximum diaphragm area that improves low-frequency response and makes the recorded sound beautifully lush. With multi-stage filtering in its housing, the microphone intelligently eliminates the bothersome vocal pops and plosives that ruin the otherwise good audio recording. It comes with a conveniently placed 100 Hz high-pass filter switch for blocking all low-frequency sounds and ambient tones in the background. Robust all-metal construction makes this efficient microphone ready for daily use and rough handling. Durable and affordable microphone tailored for all levels of audio professionals and enthusiasts.

Expanded Audio-Technica BP40 Large Diaphragm Dynamic Broadcast Microphone Key Features:

Capture High Quality Audio Recordings

This microphone features a hyper-cardioid polar pattern capable of high-sensitivity sound pickups. It is most sensitive to the on-axis sound, to where you point the microphone, and also capable of capturing off-axis tones, for bass-rich sounds when the microphone is pointed slightly away from the talent. It is more directional than average cardioid microphones because it can capture sound source from a long distance. It efficiently records the primary sound source with clean, flat, and natural tones. The hyper-cardioid pattern has great use in an atmosphere where noise isolation is required.

Smart Humbucking coil

This microphone has two coils rather than one; the humbucking coil provides a dynamic quality to the microphone by effectively minimizing those annoying electrical hums and other extraneous noises that can affect single-coil pickups. This feature easily eliminates one of the biggest hurdles commonly faced during sound recordings or broadcasts.

Internal Pop Filtering

The Audio-Technica BP40 sound capsule is placed within a multistage windscreen covered in a compact and sturdy metal housing. This windscreen provides superb internal pop filtering to eliminate vocal plosives and handling noise delivering you with a clean, noise-free sound replication.

Do you need a preamp to have maximum gain during recording an instrument with the Audio-Technica BP40?

Although the Audio-Technica BP40 can provide a nice gain before feedback, it is always good to have a preamp for rich sound quality. For example, if you are using this for an instrument recording purpose, then bass and electric instruments can be easily recorded but a preamp will be required for acoustic guitar.

Do you need to use a pop filter with Audio-Technica BP40?

Audio-Technica BP40 is equipped with a multistage windscreen internal pop filter. You do not need an additional pop filter to use with this product. The built-in pop filter can easily eliminate ambient noises and plosives.

When should you use the hyper-cardioid capsule featured by this microphone?

The Audio-Technica BP40 features a hyper-cardioid capsule that makes it ideal for recording high quality sound for vocals and broadcasting audio applications. You can also use it with a boom pole to record films, to capture specific sounds in the environment, to mic closely positioned sound sources, like drums.

The Buy Now Pay Later option comprises a 36 month loan following a six month deferral period.

During the six-month deferral period, it is possible to pay off the loan, either by way of a lump sum or in smaller amounts. If the loan is partially repaid within six months, the remaining interest will be adjusted to reflect the new balance. If the loan is fully repaid within the six-month deferral period, then no interest is payable, however, a £29 early settlement fee is payable in respect of repayments within these six months.

Following the six-month deferral period, Novuna Personal Finance will initiate a monthly direct debit payment for the remaining duration of the loan. Interest will be charged at a rate of 18.9% APR on outstanding balances (backdated to the first date of the loan). Novuna Personal Finance will send a reminder letter approximately one month before the six-month deferral period is due to elapse.
