The rich, warm sound takes you back to the classic F.E.T. studio microphones. But there’s nothing remotely old-fashioned about the technology behind that vintage sound. The AT4047/SV studio condenser’s dual-diaphragm capsule design maintains precise polar pattern definition across the full frequency range. With a wide dynamic range, incredibly low self-noise and high SPL capability, this versatile microphone excels on vocals, strings, acoustic guitar, instrument ensembles, small vocal groups and voiceovers.

For this price I have not found a mike that matches its performance and sound quality. 2 thumbs up. (Posted on 7/25/2012)

For such a detailed and capable mic, you would expect to pay much more. But Audio Technica gives you lots of added value at this price point.
The sound is somewhat vintage in that it is warm and rounded, with slight roll-off above 18k or so and a slight bump at 6k which gives spoken word a nice sound to me.
It handles very high SPL outstanding even without the pad and it performs admirably with a variety of instruments making it an ideal choice in studio.
