General
Your general opinion of this product.
Audio Technica,is first call,for my home studio,having owned and used an Audio Technica AT4033,AT4040,and now a AT2020,on many projects.The AT2020 is ideal for acoustic guitar,and very budget friendly,you could spend alot more on other condenser mics,but the build and clarity of these mics really will please most musicians,they don't color your sound they just give a very true representation of what is being sent to your mix,so have your A game working,these are very honest mics and will tell the truth on the user,as the header says money well spent.

Very honest,it will reproduce what you put in front of it,so at the end of the session,no matter what the brand or price,that's all you really need from a mic,honest reproduction,the AT2020 and the rest of the Audio Technica family do just that.
