Audio-Technica AT2020 Cardioid Condenser Microphone
Side-Address Studio Condenser
Cardioid Pattern Rejects Off-Axis Sound
Superior Transient Response
144dB SPL Handling
Wide, Linear Frequency Response
Low-Mass Diaphragm


Cardioid Condenser Element
The 16mm low-mass diaphragm features a cardioid polar pattern. The cardioid pattern effectively minimizes ambient room noise, noise from adjacent instruments or vocalists and minimizes feed-back caused by monitors.

Wide Frequency Response
The wide frequency response of 20Hz to 20kHz allows accurate signal reproduction from any source.

Wide Dynamic Range & Transient Response
The AT2020 boasts a wide dynamic range of 124dB (typical). The capsule reproduces loud signals and transients with minimal noise and peak distortion.
