Want to record clear-sounding vocals or instruments in your home studio? The Audio Technica AT2020 is for you. Thanks to this models' cardioid directional characteristic, you'll be easy to understand at the front of the mic. It won't record ambient noise. This will save you work when mixing, since you won't need to suppress noises with an equalizer. Since the microphone has a large sound pressure level, you can go nuts when playing a solo. The signal won't clip easily. Use the included clip to simply place the microphone on a stand.
