Summary: I must start off by saying that this was my first experience with these types of microphones, and what all goes into making them work. So, I've had this mic for 4 or 5 months now, its been on the air 3-3 and a half months. Little did I realize when I first started this journey that it would be as involved as it was, had I had ANY inkling of half of what was to come, I probably would have sold the mic and the boom long before.
Excerpt: My friend and I have been using his MXL 990/991 pair for amateur recording. I figured it was time to get my own condenser mics, so I went with this and its brother, the AT2021.<br /><br />So far with my experience, this mic is a good all arounder. I've used it not only for vocals, but for acoustic guitar, cajon, other percussive instruments, etc. I place this off-axis from my guitars sound hole, and the AT2021 a couple inches from the 12th-14th frets.
Pros: Clear Sound, Easy To Use, Lightweight, Versatile
Summary: This is a great small condenser type microphone. Very directional so I did not need a noise gate. Made very well! I'am using The AT2020 with the TS-870SAT, Behringer 802 and getting great audio reports.
Excerpt: I am a theatrical sound designer who was looking to have a better quality microphone to record voiceovers. This mic certainly does the trick! It gives great vocal sound quality. I typically don't like the sound of my voice, but I when I tried recording it on this mic, I thought I sounded great. I would definitely recommend this mic.
