AT2020 Black Cardioid Condenser Microphone
The Audio-Technica AT2020 is an ideal microphone for vocals and instrumental applications, for a professional recording project or home studio. It has become synonymous around the world as a solid, sturdy large diaphragm condenser microphone, that is a leader in its price point. It requires 48V DC phantom power, which may be provided by a mixer or console, or by a separate, in-line source. Included is a stand mount and a protective pouch.
High Standards from Audio-Technica
Audio-Technica’s stringent quality and consistency standards set the AT2020 apart from other mics in its class. Its low-mass diaphragm is custom-engineered for extended frequency response and superior transient response. With rugged construction for durable performance, the microphone offers a wide dynamic range and handles high SPLs with ease. The AT2020: the new standard for affordable side-address studio condensers.
Cardioid Polar Pattern
This polar pattern is ideal for recording a single vocalist, or acoustic instrument. The mic's pick up range is 180 degrees in front of the microphone. The cardioid polar pattern of the microphone is more sensitive to sound originating directly in front of the element, making it useful in controlling feedback, reducing pickup of unwanted sounds and providing isolation between performers. Cardioid mics are used for a very high percentage of microphone applications.
