        I have used this mic in my home studio. It works great for recording vocals and acoustic guitar. I can't wait to try it as a drum overhead. This sound is so clear!

          Comments about Audio Technica AT2020 Cardioid Condenser Microphone:

          Did not want to spend a fortune on a new condender mic, so I went bottom end at $100.
          The mic is beautiful, solid, compact and well made. I bought it to connect to a TC Helicon Voice Live 2 and with this setup I can fine tune the mic. The resulting recordings are truly amazing. Noise free, clean, clear and very detailed for being recorded at my desk! With todays technology it's hard to get something really bad. Save on the high end stuff unless you truly have the need for it. This mic will deliver for 95% of all the vocalists out there. Really.
