This mic is easily one of the best mics I've ever used. I was trepidatious on what the quality would be because of the price range, but I was totally blown away. Being a metal vocalist who combines heavy and clean vocals, having a mic that can do the job for both styles is very important; and...

Been using this for acoustic recording at home, just simple singer songwriter stuff and it picks up what I need it to wonderfully. It's is also versatile for recording use with my Metal band Nephilim Rising.

I use this pretty much exclusively for ways in which it was not intended to be used with most of my recordings being of musicians performing outside in locations with water hazards, awkward placements and the general exposure to the elements.

This is an excellent mic for the money and is typical of my experience with AT mics. It has a fairly flat, nice full, clean response and does not have the brittle high end of many mics in this price range. Very good sound.

This is a static condenser microphone. Frequency response: 20-20 000 Hz High-pass filter: 80 Hz, 12 dB / octave

The AT2050 is a large diaphragm condenser microphone; it has a 10 dB pad and more than one pickup pattern on it. The most recent instrument that I have used this microphone with was a great piano. Now it didn’t sound like the best microphone but it still sounded pretty good for 200 dollars.
