I don't know for certain, but being a Japanese mic, I don't think there are any parts made in China in their mics. Years ago when I was doing research on mics, there was fierce competition with electronics between the two countries. I have a few AT's that I occasionally use

Haven't used that one but heard it in a vocal demo in a quiet room at an event a few years ago and thought it sounded good. I've used some of the not-quite-as-expensive AT mics and thought they were decent. My 4040 does a pretty nice job on bass drum.

LOVE my ATM-25's on toms: they are like 'instant big rock toms'; unfortunately they are no longer made.  Bought a 4060 after a 'household name' mixer said it was an excellent mic for the money.  It was very well made and exuded a sense of quality... unfortunately every time I tried it, I found it unexciting, so I sold it.  Haven't heard the 5045.

AT mics in general (have not tried the 5045) have been quite impressive to me in price/performance ratio.

I still occasionally find a use for the old 4033a, which is a 200 dollar microphone.

They made a 'new and improved' model that I believe was called ATM-250; I'm pretty sure I tried it and didn't care for it nearly as much, but it's a foggy memory... I could be wrong.

AT makes a line of mics to fit any budget. You can usually find a low, medium and higher cost mic to do the job. The 50xx series is their top of the line. I reviewed the AT 5040 when it first came out. I was very impressed by this mic. I haven't heard the AT5045 yet. 

I think this forum doesn't allow posting URLs to elsewhere, but if you google my name and AT5040, you can find my review with sound files.

Nah, that's Gearslutz. They must be afraid that once someone leaves their forum, they won't come back. ;)

This forum doesn't allow the posting of commercial advertisements, but it's always been OK to post a link to somewhere else for reference.

hmmm... for $1000, it'd better be pretty danged wonderful. they suggest it for under the snare? sorry, there are plenty of much cheaper mics that will work there (57 anyone?). for toms, i can think of lots of mics for under half that price (heck, under a fifth of it!) that work well. it appears like the side-address feature is the main selling point. this looks like a design in search of an application.

however, i'll second the appreciation of the atm25. it's also great on kick. not bad on VO too.

Interesting: I would never have thought of that.  And I believe it's pattern is hyper.  Maybe good in a panel discussion?

well, i like the proximity effect of the atm25. so for a panel discussion, i.e. at a distance, not sure i'd be quite as enamored of it.

I was reminded of how good ATM mics were Saturday.

6 musicians on a small stage, the ATM41H vocal mic outperformed the SM58's with a higher output, better feedback rejection and clarity in vocals.
