"My Live Multitrack Recordings came alive!"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I expect to be fully satisfied for a long time. These mikes improved my live recordings to professional quality sound, being much better matched to the sonic capability of my digital recorder, than my old Shures were.
Sound
I bought two Audio Technice AT2020 and AT2021 studio packs to replace Sure SM 57 and SM58's I used in sound reinforcement, but ended up using the Shures for recording sessions on my digital multitrack recorers. Something was lacking in the sound of my prior recordings and I suspected the SM 57's and 58's as the primary suspects. I recorded a rock band several weeks prior with the old Shures, and then recorded the same band again using the Audio Technica 2020 and 2021 condencer, phantom powered mikes. I could not believe the difference in clarity and frequency response range, from lows to highs. I used the AT2021's as overheads on the drums to pick up the cymbals, and the larger AT2020's on the Marshall Amp cabs. The difference between the Audio Technica condencer mikes for recording was far superior than my old mike set up. I noticed at mixdown with these Audio Technica recording mikes that the flat signal recorded from each instrument needed very little EQ, if any, to sweaten up the mix. I liked them so well and they made so much difference on my digital multitrack recorder, that I bought two more Audio Technica Studio packages giving me now 4 AT2020's and 4 AT2021's; that's eight good phantom powered mikes for about $600 bucks, plus shipping. You can pay thousands to get mikes that rate 10, but you can't get better recording mikes for the money.
Features
The Audio Technica mikes are well made, feel solid, and work very well for digital multitrack recorders. A spider shock mount would be nice to come with these.
Ease of Use
No problem using them, just make sure they are connected before you turn on the 48volt phantom power. You may want a tube preamp for recording vocals into your mixer/recorder, They work fine without additional preamps on musical instruments.
Quality
The Audio Technica mikes were of top notch quality fit and finish, and worked well in live recording situations.
Value
I have spent three times the cost of the pair of AT2020/AT2021's and basically wasted money on one mike that did not perform as well as these mikes. They are the big bang for the home digital studio buck.
Manufacturer Support
Never dealt with the company before.
The Wow Factor
Good looking mike. Musicians commented, "Wow"! and were excited to record with them. Much better sounding recordings were made.

"Great stuff."
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
Fantastic product for an incredible price.
Sound
Great sound. Very easy to get a clean, hum-free recording, from both mics.
Features
Came with nice leather (faux-leather?) cases.
Ease of Use
You plug it in, tweak a few settings on your mixer or what have you, and you're gold.
Quality
Both mics feel very sturdy.
Value
A huge amount of bang for your buck.
Manufacturer Support
Haven't used any company support, though I did file for a rebate, and that has been an easy process (so far).
The Wow Factor
The large-diaphragm mic is definitely sexy-looking. The smaller one is also pretty sleek.

Audio-Technica AT2041 Customer Review
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
Sound
We use 4 other higher end AT studio mics for our choir, which sounds good, but with these two added on, the congregation has praised the sound team for the crisper clarity improvement it's brought to the choir.
Features
No low or high switches to mess with simplicity is a factoid.
Ease of Use
took only a few seconds to set the highs,lows, and mids. NO CRACKING noises.
Value
Sure I could have spent less money on a similar mic, but you always get what you paid for. I nearly got perfection.
The Wow Factor
Sure those shock mounts are nice but I didnt need them for my application.
