Audio Technica mic service?
« on: November 20, 2017, 11:30:15 AM »
Dropped one of my AT4041's onto asphalt (don't ask). Screen is dented in; mic seems to work but at very low output levels. I have not reached out to AT yet. Anyone have any experience with AT service, or any suggestions on who to have look at it?

Thanks in advance

It's been more than ten years, but I sent in an A-T electret stereo microphone, not designed for phantom powering, that had been accidentally connected to 48 Volt phantom powering. They turned it around right away as I recall, and charged no more than parts and a minimum bench fee.

Thanks!! I guess it wouldn't hurt to give them a shout

I think they're a really responsible outfit all around. I think quite highly of the company, from all my dealings with them and their people.

I contacted them about shock mount elastics for the shock mount for a 4033 I bought used and they sent me one for no charge, not even postage. Good company and people who will help you out.

Where is AT USA service located?  I think AT products are fantastic, and have never had to have anything repaired, but am curious.
