            Don't let the crazy low price of the Samson MTR201 Condenser Microphone fool you! There is more detail in this bad boy's sound than the finest Pacific Island scrimshaw. The MTR201 boasts a frequency range of 20hz-20khz, which will be sure to rock the casbah! It comes with a shock mount and carry case, so have no fear recording clear vocals or instruments in the heat of battle!

                  Great mic at a great price. I particularly like this mic best for some vocals and especially for instruments. For the price and included accessories, this is a great mic for startup studios or simply just to add it to the tool box.

                    If you're looking for a good isolated vocal sound, or for something to capture a really sweet instrument tone, this mic is for you. It has a sound quality that rivals companies twice its price range, and is great for any studio environment, small or big.

                      This microphone sounds great on a wide variety of vocals. I think it particularly shines on voices that sing softly as it picks up very well.
