Perfect entry level microphone
After thorough research I chose the AT-2020 for my first decent microphone to be used in my homestudio. I've been using it for over a year now and it's still going strong.
The sound is quite crisp and focussed due to the cardioïd pattern and even the smallest detail of sound is picked up when playing my steel string guitar or vocals for that matter without any excessive signal noise. I couldn't be happier. Oh wait.. If there had been an on/off switch that would've been amazing for my purposes but it's a small price to (not) pay for this wonderful microphone.
