Great value studio condenser mic

Total rating

I am recording live drums on demos and band tracks. I bought a pair of these AT2020 mics to use as drum overheads, after also considering others such as Behringer B1, Studio Projects B1, Samson C01, etc. I chose this model for sound quality and build quality based on reviews.

Set up in the 'recorderman' configuration, the AT2020's capture a nice balanced stereo image across the drums with a nice 'live' sound that doesn't require your room to be perfect. Add kick and snare and you have a great basic working drum sound with only 4 mics.

I am very happy with these mics. The sound is excellent and they are well-built. They don't have a lot of features (no pad or roll-off), so what you see is what you get; but they do the job very well.
Of course there are better mics on the market, but you have to spend an awful lot more to get a significant improvement. I tested my AT2020's against a friend's AKG C214 (which costs four times the price). The C214 was just a little warmer at high frequencies, but with a little EQ they were almost indistinguishable.
Highly recommended for the price.

(Don't forget to buy a shock-mount! T-bone SSM 6 works well with this mic).

Amazing Value

Total rating

I have always been a fan of audio technica mics and i needed a pair for an upcoming recording, i chose these due to their amazingly low price as they are very similar to the higher end mics that they produce, the mics came in leather wallets with the mic holders and have impressed me from the first time i used them, the sound of the mics at this price point is usually what lets them down, but these mics sound like they cost four times as much, i have used them for recording backing vocals, acoustic guitars and even cello. the sound is quite bright and there isn't any on body options like a pad or bass rolloff, but in my opinion, for the money you cant beat them with any of the other low priced options from other manufacturers.

Bang for your buck mic

Total rating

I got this to bring to location recording sessions where I didn't want to risk pricier mics, and to my surprise it sounds decent. The workmanship isn't perfect (mine has spots of paint and solder on it, and there were metal shavings inside the grill that I had to clean out), but for the money I'm satisfied. I've used it on male and female vocals, kicks, cajon, sax, guitar, all kinds of percussion, accordion and for micing bass/guitar amps, and the results were much better than the price would suggest. I generally prefer it to the Studio Projects B1, which I use in similar situations.
