Audio Technica AT2020 Condenser Microphone


The AT2020 sets a new standard of performance and quality in studio condenser microphones at this price level. Its low-mass diaphragm is custom made for extended frequency response and superior transient response. With a very low intrinsic noise level, it is perfectly suited to current digital recording equipment. This microphone offers a wide dynamic range, and easily holds high sound pressure levels. Its rugged construction is designed to last for years.

Magazine Reviews
Sound On Sound, Feb 2006 "I certainly have no complaints about its subjective sound quality. Indeed, for some applications in turns in better results than microphones costing several times its UK price..." http://www.soundonsound.com/sos/feb06/articles/at2020.htm Emusician, July 2005 "It was crisp, clear and warm-sounding on everything I threw at it. The mic never sounded distorted, handled high SPLs without a problem, picked up quiet sources and seemed to possess a very low self-noise." http://emusician.com/remixmag/gear_reviews/hardware/mics/remix_audiotechnica/index.html Sound On Sound, July 2010 " Vocal mics : Matching mics and voices you shouldn't judge a mic on price alone" http://www.soundonsound.com/sos/jul10/articles/vocalmics.htm
