Great value studio condenser mic

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).

Black spots are OK

As far as I know, this is one of the budget studio mics, and for me it works very well.

When I got it, I noticed that it has black spots and dots all over its body. I thought it's some kind of a defect, and contacted Thomann about it.
They were about to change the item or provide a discount, while they got a note from AT that these dots and spots are fine. Even the image on AT site shows them (if you zoom in). So if you notice this, don't worry about them and enjoy the unit :-)

Very impressive sound for the price

Plugged into my Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 this mic gives a really high quality sound - it seems well balanced across the frequencies while also being very detailed and accurate. It really shines when recording acoustic guitar in particular. Would highly recommend. Sounds way beyond it's value!

Nice!

Great sound quality and price. This and a SM57 go great together for guitar mic'ing.

I use this to record my voice, singers and different sounds for sampling purposes.
It is my first condenser microphone and the difference between this and my 20? dynamic microphone was huge. When i first plugged it into my sound card, I was amazed. I just listened to myslef talking and put some effects over. The details are there and the sound sounds very realistic to my opinion. I can hear the clock ticking if I have my headphones on.
I recored an interview for my collage assignment, which was played on our semester exhibition and my schoolmate thought he was hearing the interviewed person. So that proved to me, that the sound is somewhat realistic.
I am not a professional audio person and I haven't used tons of different equipment, but I just can't imagine, why would I spend 1000? for a microphone. I think its more important, that the singer is good or the guitarist play the melody right. If you are like me and want to start recording a bit more professional, this is the microphone I would suggest. For the price it gets the job done.
The build quality is great, it feels strong and not so fragile (ignoring the fact, that condenser microphones are fragile by default). It has a nice metal body frame and comes with a foam, that you cant put into a box that you have to find/make by yourself. It easier to find a box than to cut a foam to fit the microphone nicely.

So overall a great product for the price and if you are not a highly professional audio person, this will work just fine.
