    I have one.

    Last weekend I used it as a 2nd mic for bass cabs. Dry was DI, and the wet was the AT4040 in front of any Eden D410XLT. The combination recorded well. Very fat and full.

    I got a 4047 which is strong on vocals. No doubt, the 40s series are fine mics.

    Thanks guys, I should be purchasing it today. I was told yesterday to get a neuman or blueberry mic for recording puroposes. Are they better mics?

    The AT4040 is a really nice microphone with a pretty hot output and a fat sound too. I also have an AT4047SV & that thing is da bomb for me in the 40 series! The other microphone I really love is the AKG C 4000B

    I have an AT 4047 too. I think the 4040 is good but the 4047 is worth the extra bucks.

    It depends on your personal tastes, and what you look for in a mic. But generally speaking, yea, those other mics are much more expensive and there's a reason for that. It's not always the case that expensive mics are necessarily better . . . and certainly I'd say the 4040 outperforms it's price tag, but let's be honest with ourselves here.
