Sound superior with the new MTR201 Condenser Microphone from Samson.

Sound Superior
Ideal for recording vocals, close miking instruments, use as a room microphone and more, the MTR201 solidifies Samson’s commitment to offering superior sound and the ability to capture the best audio possible.

Fully Featured Design
The MTR201 is a large, 1-inch gold-sputtered 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 132dB. It also has a 10db attenuation switch for handling ultra-high levels. The MTR201 produces a smooth, extended frequency response, as well as low self-noise and a wide dynamic range perfect for recording. In addition, its internally shock-mounted capsule also reduces handling noise and external vibrations. This rugged die cast mic is bundled with a pop filter, shockmount and protective carry case.

Vocals
The MTR201 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 MTR201 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 MTR201 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 MTR201 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 MTR201 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.

Good Inexpensive All-Around Mic

The Samson MTR201A Condenser Microphone has got a wonderfully crisp sound that does great things for voice, while having the body and clarity to get some great guitar, piano and anything you set in front of it. There is a -10 dB emulation attenuation switch that can be enabled to reduce input for large levels of input for this uni-directional/cardioid microphone. One thing for sure you will not find better in this price range. This is a real hands-on product review from Rick @ Sam Ash Phoenix.
