The 4038 Studio Ribbon Microphone is of British Broadcasting Corporation design (BBC) and used for broadcasting and recording such sounds where a clear smooth wide-range frequency response, absence of transient distortion and relatively high sensitivity is essential.
The frequency response of the 4038 is exceptionally flat from 30Hz to 15kHz 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, smooth sonic-quality textured response to sound signal being picked up.
