AT2020


CARDIOID CONDENSER MICROPHONE

  • Rugged construction for durable performance
  • Ideal for project/home-studio applications
  • High SPL handling and wide dynamic range provide unmatched versatility
  • Custom-engineered low-mass diaphragm
  • Cardioid polar pattern

BEST QUALITY TO PRICE RATIO IN ITS CLASS

The AT2020 sets a new standard of performance and quality in studio condenser microphones at this price level. Its low-mass diaphragm is custom made for extended frequency response and superior transient response. With a very low intrinsic noise level, it is perfectly suited to current digital recording equipment. This microphone offers a wide dynamic range, and easily holds high sound pressure levels. Its rugged construction is designed to last for years.

  • One of the best quality / price ratios in side-address studio condenser microphone technology
  • Ideal for “Project / home-studio”
  • High sound pressure level and outstanding dynamic range make it a particularly versatile microphone
  • Made to measure Ø16mm low-mass diaphragm, providing both wide frequency response and superior transient response
  • Cardioid polar pattern improves isolation of desired sound source and a reduction of sound to the side and rear
  • Screw fixture and swivel foot ensure secure mounting and facilitate accurate microphone positioning
  • With its low operating noise, it is suitable for use with sophisticated recording equipment
  • Can be suspended optionally using AT8458
