In this video as well as majority of Alex's other videos, he can be seen using the AT2020 Condenser Microphone. In this particular video, the item can be seen on the right side of the screen throughout the whole video. This video was uploaded about 1 month ago at his house where most of his videos are recorded.more
While not the best microphone, the AT2020 works fantastically for an entry-level large-diaphragm condenser microphone.
I use this in the studio to record vocals, and it makes my voice sound very lively and airy, which is why I love it and haven't jumped on an upgrade yet.
Without a doubt would recommend to anyone looking for a condenser microphone to use anywhere it's needed.
I have not found a microphone as reliable and constant as the audio technica AT2020 at such a budget price of £100. I would recommend upgrading (if you can) to Rode NTA 1 for an extra £20. Then you know your on the same equipment level as the pros.
This microphone is really cheap, around 99 bucks. It's a good condenser microphone if you are starting to record. It captures bright sounds decently but it's a bit short in the low frequencies in comparison to larger diaphragm condenser microphones
This mic will do it all pretty much (as far as condensers go) and its so dang cheap (Mine at the time was like $70 new). I find with vocals it higher ranges better. It also seems to easier to use with acoustic instruments than electric. It can be sensitive to high SPL so be cautious there, but for such a cheap side-address condenser what do you expect?
