          Comments about Audio-Technica AT2050 Multi-Pattern Large Diaphragm Condenser Microphone:

          I use this pretty much exclusively for ways in which it was not intended to be used with most of my recordings being of musicians performing outside in locations with water hazards, awkward placements and the general exposure to the elements. Creates a beautiful, big sound that leaves me totally satisfied, including excellent instrument reproduction and glorious vocals.

              This microphone meets the expected versatily of a multi-pattern microphone with a sound quality that can be compared to its higher cost counterpart. Polar pattern, low-cut, and pad setting on this microphone can be changed easily without using a tool, and it fits nicely on its shockmount.

              Very smooth mic

              By Nate

              from philadelphia

              Comments about Audio-Technica AT2050 Multi-Pattern Large Diaphragm Condenser Microphone:

              After buying this mic, i was very impressed about the way this mic sounded in comparison with the nt1a. With the rode mics, ive experienced that rode mics had a somewhat harsh sound in the high mid/high frequencies in a matter of speaking which could ultimately make a sound source sound almost brittle. But with the the 2050, it was an immediate difference in the upper frequencies and was very smooth in my ears. This mic can make vocals clear and smooth and make horns sounds full and detailed. When i bought this mic, i wasnt looking for anything special but after i tried it, i was very glad i bought it.
