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.

Good sound and good price

Product Review

As with most condenser microphones, it's very sensitive. Though it has a cardiod polar pattern, you still need to be mindful of the placement. The high sensitivity also means you need to keep it stable, and you may want to invest in shock mount. Vocal sound from the mic is a bit sterile, but not so much to break the deal. It's still a good microphone and well worth the price.

Well worth the money

Product Review

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

Product Review

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.

Product Review

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.
