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.

        The cover of the top creates a more focused recording based on my experiences, and the mic is a great entry level purchase for a live or studio setting. Works well on vocals, acoustic guitars, and brass instruments.

        The Best Budget Friendly Vocal Mic

            Comments about Samson MTR101A Condenser Studio Mic Kit:

            The MTR101 is the least expensive option in the new Samson MTR series of mics. While it lacks the versatility of the MTR231 or dynamic range of the MRT201, it is half the price for the home studio on a tight budget, or the person looking for a serious upgrade over a USB mic for podcasting or Skype calling.

            The MTR101 is my first choice for clients on the tightest of tight budgets that are looking for a highly efficient, single purpose mic to record vocals.

            The MTR101 would not be ideal for drum overheads or guitar recording, but it is a perfectly serviceable vocal mic when being used in conjunction with an interface with solid pre-amps such as the Scarlett or UR22.

            Your first and last home-studio mic

                  Comments about Samson MTR101A Condenser Studio Mic Kit:

                  The Samson MTR101 is the perfect microphone for jump-starting your home studio setup. This mic features a cardioid (heart-shaped) pickup pattern that reduces room noise, and features a low self-noise rating that makes it perfect for laying down vocal tracks in your home recording studio. Additionally, it comes with a great shock mount and pop filter that you usually have to buy separately with microphones in this price range. Pair this mic up with a Scarlett 2i2 interface and you're making vocal magic for an incredibly low cost!
