Great value studio condenser mic

Mike the Drums, 12.03.2014
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).

Great mic for the price by far

16.01.2016
This is a super cheap mic that gives results, sounds great for vocals (more so female than male) but also works great on acoustic and even on guitar amps!

I'll start with the cons of this mic. It is a tiny bit noisy when compared to say the Rode NT1-A - however is a lot cheaper than the Rode. It is nearly unnoticeable in fairness, unless you are recording quiet parts such as gentle singing, where the noise can be heard in the silent gaps.

Second is that it can be a little bright. Not necessarily harsh, but could maybe be a touch more natural sounding. However I am being super picky, It's so good for it's price I would have happily paid more!

It captures the extreme lows and extreme highs with ease, which sounds great on amps, especially in live situations - however the polar patterns are a bit inconsistent throughout the frequency spectrum so it can be worth keeping it well away from other sound sources.

Overall, it is a bit of a swiss army knife, and an absolutely solid, reliable, all-round mic - regardless of price! The cheap price point is just an added bonus!
