Desirable iconic ribbon microphone from STC. This microphone is'fig' shaped and compact. Senior BBC sound engineer Chris Owen adds:
The 4038 has internal hum neutralizing wiring coupled with magnetic shielding of the toroidal ribbon-to-microphone line transformer reducing response to stray magnetic fields by 30 to 40 dB. For many years, the 4038 was found in virtually all BBC studios. Indeed, many studios were equipped with no other type of mic. Optional BBC logo and cue light.
