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).

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 :-)

Great mic for speach

This mic have a nice alimunim construction, it feel really solid.

The included mount is acceptable for low gain recordings, but for higher gain recordings, a shockmount is needed.

It does not include a shockmount, and a compatible shockmount cost too much comparing to the microphone's price, the better is just buying an universal shockmount.

The sound is not that special, it does a good job in voice and acoustic instruments, but its best spot is recording speach.

This microphone have a foam protection working as a built-in pop filter: This is good for amateur recording, so they do not need to worry about windscreens or pop filters, But, i other hand, It's bad, because the sound loose some detail in acoustic instruments recordings.

Fantastic for recording speech, but has worked very well recording guitar, drums, screamed vocals and piano also. Not the warmest or clearest sounding mic I've tried but at the price point it can't be beat.

Construction feels very solid, and the included carry case provides extra protection against scratches.
