Audio Technica at4073

One of my favorite boom microphones, the Audio Technica 4073 is often overlooked by filmmakers. It’s popularity in ENG work has made it so common that you can usually get it for a good price on the used market. New, the Audio Technica 4073 will set you back around $700, but right now there’s a 4073 boom mic on ebay with right angle cable and shock mount for just $275+$15 shipping.

If you are in the market for a very formidable boom mic at a reasonable price, you might want to move fast. These used 4073 mics only show up at this price 3 or 4 times a year.
