The 4038 Studio Bow Mic is of British Broadcasting design (BBC) and made use of for broadcasting and tape-recording such noises where a clear smooth large variety regularity response, absent of transient distortion and relatively high sensitivity is necessary.
The 4038 has a tested trustworthy performance ability, being since its basic principles, used by transmitting networks throughout the world such as the BBC.
The frequency feedback of the 4038 is remarkably flat from 30 to 15,000 c/s and throughout this variety the design of the bi-directional (figure of eight) polar response is maintained substantially continual both in the horizontal and vertical planes, providing a natural smooth sonic quality textured feedback to appear signal being picked up.
Studio microphones have now accomplished a remarkable fidelity of recreation. If the microphone is not close to perfection, there is no point in having expensive systems to take the sound the rest of the method to the crowd’s ears.
In the world of noise, the BBC has always been the innovator, and is still regarded as the ‘setter of criteria’.
