      Purpose Built Entry Condensor Mic

          Comments about Samson MTR201 Condenser Microphone:

          The MTR 201 is a great, work horse cardiod condenser mic.

          It shines as a vocal, guitar amp, or drum overhead mic in a startup studio.

          It lacks the versatility of the bigger brother, the multi-pattern MTR231, but it cuts the cost of the more expensive mic while still maintaining the same capsule for those on a tight budget and a very narrow focus to their studio.

            Comments about Samson MTR201 Condenser Microphone:

            This is a killer vocal mic for the price. The vocalist I was recording immediately fell in love with it. Great reproduction, maybe even flattering reproduction, of the voice. Got plenty of life from it without having to resort to plugging a lot of EQ in.

            Great mic for the price. The entire MTR series demonstrates Samson's comitment to quality and affordablity. This mic really does handle high SPL's well and that coupled witht the 10dB attenuation switch makes this an excelent crossover mic from entrty to mid level recording.

              Comments about Samson MTR201 Condenser Microphone:

              I've used this product to record vocals in my studio, and the Samson MTR201 gives a clean an clear sound that I would expect from microphones twice it's price. The extended frequency response makes this microphone extremely versatile and fits a wide range of voices.

              The shock mount it comes with is fantastic, and although it does come with a pop filter I would suggest getting an additional Samson SP01 filter to reduce some of the harder P's and T's.

              While ideal for vocals, I've also used the 201 to mic acoustic guitar, which comes in extremely clean. I would reduce the gain and lower the treble on your input, as too much high end can cause it to sound a bit harsh. Still a great way to get great sound for a great price.

                High SPL lets you record instruments or vocals with one mic! Really nice, full frequency detail 20hz-20khz. 1" gold diaphragm keeps the sound full. Includes pop filter, shock mount and a case for on the go. Great choice.

                  Why is this so inexpensive??? Its got a great flat sound for laying down vocals and most acoustic instruments. It's packaged with a shock mount and a fitted pop filter so there's no need to waste money on additional accessories.

                        Sweet mic for recording studio vocals.
                        The sound is rich and detailed and not too brittle on the top.
                        Definitely glad to add this to my microphone closet.
