The AT 4050 is an excellent mic imo. It is considered by many to be a good workhorse/all around microphone.  I'm not sure that there is a difference between the AT4050 CM5 (which I own) and the new ones.  They may have dropped the CM5 part of the name but I've never seen or heard anything about AT changing or updating it.  The shockmount it comes with now is different.  I reserve the right to be wrong on this.

I love that cheese-food stuff. And cool color too.

What no air mike should I get?? I've got $600.
Could shop /stretch for a KSM 44
or just buy a RE20 and lots of Mac and Cheese.
Need multi purpose vocal / instrument and No Air. Got plenty of those.

FWIW, I just borrowed one of the new ones from a shop and compared it with my CM5.  I could not get them to null on program material played out through one of my monitors...  

Not to say that a NOS CM5 would not null, mine was originally purchased second hand and has been heavily used (while never abused) by me for about 5 years now...

Not exactly scientific testing, but I know I'm probably not going to be able to pair that mic very easily.

Best, Marcel

Thats not a very realistic. I doubt you will ever find two mics that will null. The specs on the materials used to make the mic are at VERY best +/- 5% and at that price range probably +/- 20% at best.
