Audio Technica 3060 is a fixed-cardioid tube condenser that operates on phantom power – rare and discontinued

“What struck me the most about the AT3060 was its retro sound that came across no matter what [mic]pre was in use. I wouldn’t call it a classic tube mic sound. But, I’d say it nails the retro sound sought by so many recording artists today. If you like the White Stripes, then you’ll like this mic.” – Stephen Langer, MojoPie
