Audio technica 4073

I’ve been a fan of the Audio-technica 4073 boom mic for years and it’s often overlooked by filmmakers. The 4073 has a very strong signal, a lot of reach, and a very crisp clear sound. It’s popularity in ENG work has made it so common that you can usually get the mic for a good price on the used market. New, the Audio Technica 4073 will set you back around $700, but right now there are three 4073 boom mics on ebay with a buy it now price of $270. They look a little beat up but the 4073 is a work horse even with a few bumps and bruises. I’d buy one right now if I didn’t already own two.
