Every aspect of the AT2020 has been tailored for a very smooth, natural sound while ensuring maximum accuracy, making it a perfect complement for today's digital recording equipment.

The Audio-Technica AT2020 comes standard with a pivoting, threaded stand mount, which attaches securely for easy and precise placement. The microphone requires 48V phantom power that may be provided by a mixer/console. In addition, the AT2020 measures 6.38 inches long, has a maximum body diameter of 2.05 inches, weighs 12.1 oz., and comes with a soft protective carrying pouch.

Well worth the money
Product Rating
What is your opinion of this product?
The AT2020 is a well designed cardioid microphone, it’s a bit more rugged than other “touchy” mics. I am actually able to use this mic in live performances. It is able to go from studio to stage, and always delivers satisfying clarity.

Great Condenser Mic For The Price
What is your opinion of this product?
The AT 2020 sounds clean and full without boominess. This is NOT a Neumann by any stretch of the imagination - but it's also a $100 mic. I'm sure a great higher-end compressor like a Warm Audio would warm it up nicely. If you are on a budget and need a solid condenser microphone, you could do a lot worse. Solidly-built, good sound, does what it says it will do. The mic alone is 99 bucks - add 95 cents and you get a boom stand and XLR cable. Not bad. Not. Bad. At. All.

A tremendous microphone in a very budget friendly package.
What is your opinion of this product?
Smooth over the top side (I know some say crisp) so that means to me that the high end is not annoying. The bottom is full and doesn't seem to be boomy. I am trying it cutting vocals thru a DBX channel strip and it sounds very natural. Looking forward to trying out the other pre-amps and channel strips in my rack. In summary I say go for it. You can't go wrong at this price point.

Great Microphone
What is your opinion of this product?
I was looking for something not too expensive and checked out multiple sites and videos about budget microphones. This was one of them. I haven't played with it too much yet but initial testing seems to be doing great.

This is a great mic!
What is your opinion of this product?
It's hard to believe that you can get a mic this good for under $100! This thing reproduces the sound of my guitar even better than the built-in pickup. I'm very satisfied.

Money well spent !
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 well engineered and manufactured,no sloppy fit or finish,I don't throw money around,they have to do what they claim,I feel they do that's why I own three of them.
Very straight forward and easy to use,each mic brings something special to the table,try different mic placements on a instrument or vocalist
The build and finish Clarity Price would like to see db cut and roll off switches as other Audio Technica units but it's a small issue
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.

Outstanding Value and Quality!
Your general opinion of this product.
Tne build quality is par with more expensive mics. For doing vocals it sounds amazing. The mic provides a nice bass along with some sparkle. Just remember you're not getting a $1000 mic.
The mic is very well made. I've been using these mics for the past year and found them to be a good workhorse mic for what I do.
Plug and play is easy enough, I'd say.
This mic is a plain Jane compared to others. The features that would make it more versatile in my opinion are a pad and bass roll off switches.
Very good to Excellent tone from this one.
