Audio-Technica AT2020 Condenser Cardoid Studio Microphone

Available: In Stock
$199.00
  • The AT2020 does not come with an XLR cable or stand and, as the AT2020requires 48V phantom power, you will also need to purchase a suitable audiointerface.
  • You will need a 3-pin XLR female to XLR male microphone cable to connectyour AT2020 to a phantom power supply or audio interface.

Audio-Technica’s strin­gent quality and consistency standards set theAT2020 apart from other mics in its class. Its low-mass diaphragm iscustom-engineered for extended frequency response and superior transientresponse. With rugged construction for durable performance, the microphoneoffers a wide dynamic range and handles high SPLs with ease. The AT2020: the newstandard for affordable side-address studio condensers.

What is a Cardioid Condenser?

A Condenser microphone such as the AT2020 contains a delicate diaphragm thatcaptures the vibrations of the sounds you’re wanting to record. This diaphragmis so delicate that it requires powering through the XLR cable, ensuring everyaspect of your instrument or voice is captured in crisp detail.

Audio-Technica cardioid microphones have heart — figuratively andliterally — thanks to the shape of the sound capture area. Cardioidmicrophones capture what’s in front of them in a rough heart shape, from thepinnacle of sound capture at the front of the microphone to the graduatedcapture off to the sides. This cardioid pattern improves isolation of anydesired sound source for rich and accurate recording.
