    This is a good microphone. STOP saying this is a good mic for beginners. It's a good microphone for everybody it sounds professional. A Mic is a mic when you say beginner your making it seem like everyone is a beginner maybe you are but not everyone else

  • Great studio mic for a Mezzo

    As reviewed by Michael McNerney on 12/10/2012

    Back in the days when state of the art studios were bulked down with Otari analog tape decks, I owned a recording studio in the San Francisco area. Our mic selection ranged from Shure SM33 and 55's, RCA 77dx to Neumann M269c, various AKGs, Sennheisers, etc. I have to say, however, that with all the firepower we had available, I don't think anything made my wife's voice shine as well as the AT2020. I'm not saying this mic is for everyone, however, as a professional mezzo soprano opera singer who also belts jazz, this mic loves her tones. It's durable enough to handle the massive presence she can create, without sounding tinny, shrill or muddy. As a mezzo, she has more than a three octave range and the 2020 performs beautifully from her lowest, chocolate tones to the near glass-shattering highs. Every voice is different and should be evaluated individually before making a mic selection, but for our needs, the AT2020 is the perfect choice.

  • Great Mic

    As reviewed by Glenn on 8/15/2011

    I have used this mic for over two years now and use it with a presonus audiobox recording interface. I have had great results especially on acoustic guitars positioned right around the twelfth fret. It also seems to work well for vocals and even electric guitar when recording at lower volumes. I do suggest getting a shock mount to use with this so you won't have any extra noises as I did for mine. This mic holds up very well and should last a very long time. It's as clear as it was when I first bought it.
