Summary: I just got this mic in yesterday and recorded a song with it. Fantastic mic for the lower range vocals! I sing in a tenor range and all my other mics are suited well for higher vocal range. But am recording a few songs in a baritone range, and the mics sounded too thin (in my opinion) - this AT2010 really fattened up my lower range. Highly recommend this mic!
Excerpt: Well made and good sound quality. I didn't give it five stars only because it requires 48 volts of phantom power, which I did not notice until I tried to hook it into a 12 volt string of lavalier mics. Really my bad, I guess, for not noticing.
Pros: Clear Sound, Compact, Easy To Use, Lightweight, Versatile
Summary: I purchased one of these and hurriedly ordered another to have a pair after testing. Frequency response and self noise are excellent. I use these on a stand or boom but found the handling noise to be fairly low. Not as low as a SM58 though. The pickup pattern allows use of a floor monitor if the performer needs one though I use these in my studio. I did have in mind using them on the road if needed.
Summary: Excellent quality condenser microphone with cardiod polar pattern. Good clarity of sound. No handling noise. Prefer it had a on/off switch since in our band no one runs the mixer once we start to play.
