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 :-)
I was on the lookout for an egg-laying woolen sweep, with which one can make the most, which comes to the homerecorder so Mic. Conclusion: It goes and that also still good and cheap. Measured against the rest of the recording chain (eg Soundcraft Mixer Compact 4), the actual slight noise is not problematic either. I use it as an individual microphone for acoustic guitars and the entire guitar as a sound body is beautifully illustrated. For language and singing, I also use it. My voice is about baritone, which works well with a nice presence.
The overall sound is probably combined with the words neutral and precise. You do not get the extreme bass boost from other competitors in this price class. The one must then however in the mix also not again rausfiltern. The signals sound "real", which I find very pleasant, since everything is "bigger than life" is too much. If you like this sound, the AT 2020 is actually ideal, unless you have much more money left, then you can of course have even more features and better noise.
I am happy. One thing, however, I find annoying. The accessory is miserably expensive. The matching spider costs 90, - what a plastic part is already a joke anyway. For a micro of this price class - without words. But you can take the spider "THE T.BONE SSM 2". Which must then be a little bend, then it fits the same - then for 9.90, which seems to me for such a small sheet metal also appropriate.
