What a GREAT mike!!!!!

By Kidterry

from Central North Carolina

Comments about Audio-Technica AT2020 Large Diaphragm Condenser Microphone:

I use this mike to record vocals and guitar. Although I own some sure mikes, I only use this one for lead vocals or quartet/trio combinations. For a hundred bucks, buy 2 !!!! Highly reccomend this one!

Hey, mine was free!

By darren

from Undisclosed

Comments about Audio-Technica AT2020 Large Diaphragm Condenser Microphone:

Yep, got it with a Presonus Eureka channel strip. The ridiculous thing is that this mic kicks butt! When used with a pop screen this is my favorite vocal recording mic. My other condenser picks up everything in the room, but this one does a nice job of delicately picking up what you put in front of it. The sound is very transparent and uncoloured. For lots of fun, try running your voice through this, then a distortion pedal. Monitor it with open headphones.

No Coloring at all

By Allen KV

from NJ - (NYC area)

Comments about Audio-Technica AT2020 Large Diaphragm Condenser Microphone:

first when I got my MXL 990s I thought that it was the best thing ever. I found that there are better mics out there with a similar price. So I bought the Audio Technica AT2020 and man, This mic produces your actual voice. I record a friend who spits it and his real voice sounds the same on the record. I'm sure its enough info for you guys, same sound in the software as the original !!!

My favorite microphone

By Chris

from San Clemente, CA

Comments about Audio-Technica AT2020 Large Diaphragm Condenser Microphone:

I use this microphone to record vocal and acoustic guitar and it performs like a champion. It picks up everything perfectly making it easy to find a good placement for it, which is very important when mic'ing an acoustic guitar. For vocals I couldnt ask for more. You probably want to get a screen so you dont mess it up though. This mic is great and is worth ever penny!

Sound Great!

By Brian Jones

from Virginia Beach, VA

Comments about Audio-Technica AT2020 Large Diaphragm Condenser Microphone:

I finally got to use these as drum overheads tonight...I was VERY impressed! I have used it on Acoustic and Electric Guitars and also Main Vocals and I liked them..but I REALLY liked them on my drumset as overheads...I ran them through a Pre Sonus ADL600 mic pre and it was ultra clean! I think I have a new fav mic brand seeing as the AT4050 has become #1 on my vocal takes in the studio...def a great buy!

      Comments about Audio-Technica AT2020 Large Diaphragm Condenser Microphone:

      I use this mic in my home studio recording setup and the clarity and bass response are remarkable for something in this price range . I have used this for vocals and record acoustic guitars . It is so easy to get a good clean signal within minutes guess you could almost call this plug and play with a few small adjustments on gain structure your set to record .I highly recommend this mic for any recording studio.
