4038 & 4071B Adaptor description:

The Coles 4038 & 4071B Adaptor is a studio ribbon microphone is a British Broadcasting (BBC) design for broadcasting and recording applications.  It is used where a clear smooth wide range frequency response, absence of transient distortion and relatively high sensitivity is essential.
The 4038 is a proven performer, and is in use around the world by broadcasting networks such as the BBC as well as top engineers and studios on hit recordings.
Frequency response of the 4038 is exceptionally flat from 30 to 20,000 Hz and throughout this range the shape of the bi-directional (figure of eight) polar response is maintained substantially constant both in the horizontal and vertical planes, giving a natural sonic quality with smooth frequency response.

Also included is the 4071B adaptor.

These mics don't need much reviewing, they've been legendary since the 60's.
Incredibly smooth and detailed on drum overheads, but very nice punchy transients.
Also amazing for many other sources including brass, room mics, vocals and acoustic, slightly dark on some sources, but takes eq better than any other Mic.
