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.
