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.

      Comments about Samson MTR101A Condenser Studio Mic Kit:

      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.

              This is a great microphone for a beginning producer who is trying to get their Home Studio off the ground. It comes with a pop filter and a shock mount so all you have to do is plug it in and you have an enhanced recording experience. Great for a beginning producer or somebody trying to set up a home recording setup. At the price you can't lose with this product.

                Not sacrificing good sound quality for the price either.

                  Usually, by the time you've bought a nice cable and a pop filter, you're down about 40 bucks, but this mic comes with the mic, which is really convenient. It's a solid mic for vocals.

                      The Samson MTR101A Condenser Studio Mic Kit is a great condenser microphone for recording vocals and close miking instruments. It also is great as a room microphone to record the natural eco of the cave you managed to sneak into to record in. If you're looking to record at high levels, look no further! This microphone has tested to handle SPLs of up to 137dB!! For easy comparison, its like recording a jet engine at 100 ft away! Crazy!
