SAMSON MTR231A -- Quality Versatiliy, and Value
The Samson MTR231A studio microphone is a versatile studio workhorse for recording vocals, instruments, as a room microphone and more. With three selectable pickup patterns, cardiod, omnidirectional, and bidirectional, the MTR231A can pick up an entire room or reject ambient sounds and focus only on nearby performers.  If you need for studio quality mic priced right that can handle virtually all miking situations, then the Samson MTR231A is for you.

Three Selectable Pickup Patterns
The MTR231A has two large, 1-inch gold-sputtered diaphragms with three selectable pickup-patterns – cardioid, omnidirectional and bidirectional - to meet any recording challenge. Your recordings will sound great with the MTR231A's smooth, extended frequency response and wide dynamic range. It also features an internally shock-mounted capsule to minimize handling noise and vibrations. The rugged MTR231A includes a pop filter, shockmount and protective carry case.

Perfect for the Studio
The MTR231A is perfect for handling a variety of vocal miking techniques. Use the cardiod pattern for any vocal performance where excellent rear-rejection is needed or use it as the "Mid" mic in a Mid-Side stereo setup. Whether recording a single vocalist or surrounded by an ensemble, the omnidirectional setting is ideal for capturing the ambiance of a great-sounding room. The bidirectional pattern can be used to isolate two sound sources, one or both being vocals (two vocalists, a singer-guitarist, etc.). And with a wide 20Hz–20kHz frequency response, the MTR231A can capture all the subtlies of a great vocal performance.

Instruments And More
With a wide dynamic range and the ability to handle ultra-high SPLs, the MTR231 is ideal for close miking a variety of instruments both live and in the studio. Use the MTR231A to mic guitar cabinets, drums, pianos, winds and other instruments. And all of the previously mentioned vocal miking techniques can be easily applied to all of these instruments given the situation and desired sound.
