    • For Gear Heads:

      The Coles 4038 Ribbon Microphone is a British Broadcasting (BBC) design for broadcasting and recording applications.  The 4038 is used where a clear smooth wide range frequency response, absence of transient distortion and relatively high sensitivity is essential.  is a proven performer, and is in use around the world by broadcasting networks such as the BBC as well as top engineers and studios on hit recordings. Frequency response of the Coles 4038 is exceptionally flat from 30 to 20,000 Hz and throughout this range the shape of the bi-directional (figure of eight) polar response is maintained substantially constant both in the horizontal and vertical planes, giving a natural sonic quality with smooth frequency response.

      Includes:

      • 4071B Mic to stand adapter with XLR

      • Soft cloth protective bag

      • Foam lined rigid plastic carrying case

      Layman's Terms:

      The Coles 4038 is one of the most iconic ribbon microphones in the recording industry.  Coles ribbons mics find their home on a ton of sources for me in the studio.  Like most engineers, they work wonders on drum overheads, drum room mics and even brass or woodwinds.  The Coles 4038's smooths out harsh, high-end frequencies on cymbals and overly ambient live rooms.   I believe every studio should own a pair of 4038's, especially for catering to veteran engineers and producers alike.

        • Ribbon: Low mass damped ribbon to control transient response
        • Polar Response: Bi-directional
