Audio-Technica AT2020 Condenser Microphone
Audio-Technica AT2020 Condenser Microphone is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Versatile For Beginning/Mid Level EngineersI purchased this mic from a different website a few months back, and all I can say is that it was completely worth the money. Inexpensive, built like a brick and great-sounding. I use it to over-track myself playing woodwind ensemble pieces (about 4 feet back alongside an SM57 close to the middle of the instrument). The mic has a good sound: not tinny or thin, but not muffled. Also very durable for a condenser. If you're on a budget, this is one of the best solutions.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from It's price parallels its performanceThis mic is a rather flat and boring disappointment. Don't expect any high end or warmth.
