      Comments about Electro-Voice RE20 Dynamic Cardioid Microphone:

      This microphone was recommended by a professional recording engineer as he matched it to my voice. I was reluctant to spend the cash but now that it's here my Rhode Microphone goes up for sale.

      Overall this is a great choice if you have the money. Durable and reliable.

      The best tone for the money

      By Josue Lugo

      from Canovanas,Puerto Rico

      Comments about Electro-Voice RE20 Dynamic Cardioid Microphone:

      I have tried many condenser and dynamic microphones in my career and just to mention some the Neumann M147, Shure KSM44 and SM7B, Audio-Technica AT3035, Sterling Audio ST66,Apex 460, etc. .... No microphone has given me such good results as the RE20. Quiet, Fat,Pleasant and Colorful Tone,good Transient content and Beautiful Vintage Look. To my ears the RE20 has the best tone for the money. On Vocals,Violin,Bass,etc. truly is almost impossible to sound bad. RE20 is a "work horse" in my Studio.
      Simple and effective
      Always the best result
      Worth every penny

      great vocal condenser

      By Anonymous

      from Undisclosed

      Comments about Electro-Voice RE20 Dynamic Cardioid Microphone:

      I have a Neumann u87, a Sennheiser 414, and a Rhode nt-1a. When it comes to recording male voices, this is my preferred mic. It is the industry standard for radio, but for all you podcasters out there, it's probably not worth the dough--save your self some cash and get a large diaphragm condenser.

      Great VO Mic

      By Rex

      from Dallas, TX

      Comments about Electro-Voice RE20 Dynamic Cardioid Microphone:

      I had been mic shopping for a bit now, and while some folks in the biz may say that this mic is NOT for VO use...i disagree COMPLETELY! This mic has held up to the riggers of the broadcast industry for years and is in production rooms across the country. This being because the quality of this mic beats others to the punch. If you have the cash, this mic is the way to go. Along with a good processor, your sound will reign supreme among audiophiles every where.

      Studio Excellence

      Comments about Electro-Voice RE20 Dynamic Cardioid Microphone:

      Being a 17 year radio vet and working for a dozen or so stations, I have logged a lot of time with the RE20 (as well as many other mics). The RE20 is a champ. It sounds really good on almost everybody. I also own my own production studio, and while some people sound better on a good condenser mic, I always test them on the RE20 first, more times than not they sound better on the EV. It's my benchmark. There is a reason why this mic has been the industry standard for decades. You just can't go wrong having one of these in your microphone locker.

      For vocals...

      By Anonymous

      from Undisclosed

      Comments about Electro-Voice RE20 Dynamic Cardioid Microphone:

      I've seen a lot of people mention instrumental uses for this, and some even say that they're not sure how it works for vocals...So, for you information, this is a microphone heavily used by Thom Yorke, Radiohead's vocalist, for both recording and performance.So there ya' go, vocalists.

      Great Mix

      By Burkeville

      from Vancouver Canada

      Comments about Electro-Voice RE20 Dynamic Cardioid Microphone:

      I haven't used a new one so I am not sure if they have cut the quality like some other mic, but the two old ones I have are amazing. I use them for kick and trumpet mostly, and it works really well. I also have used it for bass amps and prefer it for floor toms.

      studio uses

      By Eric-XrVdi

      from new york state

      Comments about Electro-Voice RE20 Dynamic Cardioid Microphone:

      Know that this mic is a pro studio standard for Bass Drum. Also the lead vocals on Bob Dylan's Blood on the tracks was cut with this. Also the lead vocals for the Clash's Combat Rock. After the SM57 and the SM58 this is the next dynamic you will want for a studio.

      It's the Standard Broadcast Radio Mic For a Reason

      By j swift

      from Jesup GA

      Comments about Electro-Voice RE20 Dynamic Cardioid Microphone:

      It's clean, prox effect is minimal unless you're right on it; However, I think most singers/musicians are not familiar with it, because you don't often see it anywhere but in a radio studio. It's really good for spoken word; I've never really seen it used for singers.
