Samson’s MTR101A Studio Mic Kit brings exceptional performance and high-end quality to a variety of live and studio situations.

Sound Superior
Sound superior with the new MTR101A Studio Mic Kit from Samson. Ideal for recording vocals, close miking instruments, use as a room microphone and more, the MTR101A solidifies Samson’s commitment to offering superior sound and the ability to capture the best audio possible.

Fully Featured Design
The MTR101 is a large, 1-inch diaphragm studio condenser microphone. It features a cardioid pickup pattern that provides increased isolation of a sound source and is designed to handle high SPLs of up to 137dB. The MTR101 produces a smooth, extended frequency response, as well as low self-noise and a wide dynamic range perfect for recording. In addition, its rugged die cast construction features an internally shock-mounted capsule that reduces handling noise and external vibrations.

And All The Extras
In addition to the mic, the MTR101A kit includes a pop filter and shockmount. The pop filter features a stainless mesh screen that reduces vocal popping and sibilance. The filter is easily attached directly to the mic, and just as easily removed. The kit’s specifically designed shockmount provides the mic with enhanced isolation from mechanical noise, and is compatible with all standard microphone stands.

Capture Your Best...
The MTR101 is perfect for capturing vocal performances in the studio. The mic’s cardioid pickup pattern provides increased isolation, avoiding unwanted noise and highlighting only the vocalist. As such, the MTR101 is ideal for any vocal performance where excellent rear-rejection is needed or use it as the "Mid" mic in a Mid-Side stereo setup. And with a wide 20Hz–20kHz frequency response, the MTR101 can capture the most dynamic of voices with ease.

Instruments And More
Featuring a wide dynamic range and the ability to handle high SPLs, the MTR101 is ideal for use as a room microphone or for close miking a variety of instruments both live and in the studio. From aggressive guitar cabinets and drums to vibrant pianos, winds and other preferred instruments, the MTR101 is designed to faithfully reproduce a diverse range of instrument tones. And the previously mentioned vocal miking techniques can be easily applied to all of these instruments given the situation and desired sound.

        Great mic for voice or instrument. The large, phantom powered diaphragm brings out the nuances of woodwinds, acoustic instruments, voice and more.

          Comments about Samson MTR101A Condenser Studio Mic Kit:

          I was looking for an inexpensive high quality studio mic to use for my guitar parts. I tried all 3 levels of many different brands but in the end chose the samson mtr101. I have used 3 of the mtr line each for its best sound. I like this one for guitar amp mixing. Give it a try for yourself. I am a staff reviewer at Sam Ash Music.

          Comments about Samson MTR101A Condenser Studio Mic Kit:

          This mic is great when youre on a budget which happened to be the case for me. I hated constantly having to borrow a friends mic so I saved up a little, read some reviews, and took a chance on this one, and I havent looked back since. Ive used it on a variety of different vocals and have gotten great detail out of all of them. Later on I will definatley upgraded just for a different flavor of sound but this mic will definatley remain in my mic locker as a go to for anything I need captured.

            Versatile mic! Works well on many sources. Best for drum overheads, acoustic guitar & micing vocals. Package includes shock mount & pop filter. Shock mount design makes mic a little top heavy if using the mic in an upright position. Overall, a good value for the money!
