OVERVIEW

A studio mic bundle that delivers a pair of versatile performers for less.

The Audio-Technica AT2041SP Microphone Pack gives you 2 studio condenser microphones for use in your recordings. They deliver versatility and durability with remarkable specs and superior build. The critically acclaimed AT2020 is a side-address mic for vocal and instrument applications, while the AT2021 small-diaphragm condenser microphone is a natural for solo acoustic instruments and vocal and drum overheads. Each mic offers a wide dynamic range and handles high SPLs with ease. An innovative pivoting stand mount is included along with a microphone clip and protective pouches.

Using proven Audio-Technica technology, 20 Series microphones deliver great performance for digital and analog recording at a low price. Audio-Technica's stringent quality/consistency standards set both microphones apart from other mics in their class. Both require phantom power.

I purchased the AT2041SP set of two microphones as my first condenser mikes for my home recording studio. I researched many mikes before settling on Audio-Technica. The AT 2020 had received many glowing reviews on the internet for its performance and toughness. The reviews were spot on. This a tough and reliable mike. I have used it in my studio and when playing out. It provides a clear reproduction of your sound. The AT 2020 has been the workhorse in my recording. It provides a very nice proximity effect on acoustic guitars. I have also used the AT2010 for miking guitars as well. Both mikes have proven to be reliable performers. I would highly recommend them to anyone starting in home recording.

I bought these mics a few months ago because they were a cheap package deal with good reviews. Well, I should have bought something else. The Vocal mic sounds very muddy and the instrument mic hasn't worked since the day it arrived. AT has never replied to my warranty request. If you buy these, keep your receipt, you'll need it. Spend the extra $ and buy a SHURE SM57 & SM58.

      Comments about Audio-Technica AT2041SP - AT2020 and AT2021 Microphone Pack:

      When I was studying audio engineering 8 or 9 years ago, I was anxious to start putting what I was learning into practice. I was awarded a special grant designed to help technology students get the tech they were studying - in essence, I was told I must buy "toys" with the money! (Ouch, stop twisting my arm already!) I purchased a digital interface and 2 of this set. They looked like a good set to start out with, and the price was good.

      They turned out to be some of my most used mics. They have good overall sound for just about any sound source, nice range, and a SNR that rivals mics costing far more. When funds came again, I ended up buying 2 additional sets.

      The 2021 is a fantastic mic for hi-hats and other brass, guitar, and toms. The 2020 is great on vocals and other broad-spectrum instruments, as well as foley.

      Surprisingly, the place these have really performed well for me is on piano. 2 of this set is my go-to for baby grand piano: Put the 2021s in an X/Y near coincident pair covering the hammers inside, and the 2020s in the same configuration 12-16 feet outside the open lid, mix (with the appropriate delay on the 2021s) and WOW! I've impressed several professional pianists with the results.

      If you're looking for a good set of general-purpose, inexpensive mics, give these babys a try. You'll be glad you did!

      Their value certainly exceeds their cost!!

      By toolategabe

      from Mesa, AZ, USA

      Comments about Audio-Technica AT2041SP - AT2020 and AT2021 Microphone Pack:

      I originally picked up the studio pack and after hearing what the 2020 could reproduce used as an overhead for drums, I soon added another to my setup. I primarily use the two 2020s in a Glyn Johns setup with a kick mic and let me just say that I haven't enjoyed such a full drum sound at home EVER. I will NEVER go without the AT2020 mics as long as I can help it! I have to admit that I haven't used the 2021 enough to comment on it just yet, but when I have a chance I'll certainly give my full opinion... But so far it's been a decent mic! Cheers A-T!!

        Comments about Audio-Technica AT2041SP - AT2020 and AT2021 Microphone Pack:

        I bought this mic package on a whim, and Man was I in for a shock! The 2020 has a big, punchy sound and captures big overdriven guitar amp sounds up close and far away, fantastically. The real gem however, is the AT 2021. Whoa!!! It is so dynamic, with power and clarity, that it's my go to mic for any and all acoustic instruments and overhead drum/cymbal applications. I notice some of the reviews stated that this mic doesn't work. Well, don't forget it needs "phantom power" to operate correctly. If you're not using this, it will not make a single sound! This is a fantastic mic package and one helluva great deal!

          Something to consider

          By Steven Andres

          from Manitoba, Canada

          Comments about Audio-Technica AT2041SP - AT2020 and AT2021 Microphone Pack:

          I love the AT2020. I think it sounds great, looks good and is perfect for starting up. Highly recommend it, though it would be nice if it came with a shockmount. I'm sure the AT2021 is a nice mic, if it were to work. The one I got doesn't make a sound, and I've read another similar review. Just make sure wherever you buy it from will take it back and give you a new one if you would be lucky enough to get one that doesn't work.

          Comments about Audio-Technica AT2041SP - AT2020 and AT2021 Microphone Pack:

          I started recording my own music about a year ago and bought these for acoustic, vocals, and drums and have not been disappointed. I've read a few reviews that bash these mics, but if you are just starting out you can't go wrong with these guys. Different polar patterns, etc would be nice, but at this price you can't expect too much. Great overall value.

          Comments about Audio-Technica AT2041SP - AT2020 and AT2021 Microphone Pack:

          When I first hooked up these mics to try them out, I was blown away! They have a great tone to them, which I love, and I can't get enough of them! With some mics when you first try them out they sound good, then after a while you notice they're not as good as you thought. Not these two! If you're looking at this page, these are the right mics for you!

          Good for a beginner

          By why

          from Arlington, VA

          Comments about Audio-Technica AT2041SP - AT2020 and AT2021 Microphone Pack:

          I bought one of these sets, and it wasn't a bad deal for the price. Honestly, these aren't the greatest mics in the world, but you can get decent results with soe experimentation. The large diaphragm 2020 has a warm tone, perhaps a bit too much on the high end. The smaller 2021 can be a bit tinny sounding. I had originally hoped to use the 2021 on my acoustic guitar while using the 2020 for my voice, but the 2020 ended up being better suited to both so I'd go with just the larger one rather than this package.I'm now looking to upgrade to something better, but this was a decent value that was good to experiment with and learn. If I had it to do over again, I might go for something more professional like the 4040 right out of the gate, but if you're on a budget I'd recommend at least the 2020.

          from Knightstown, IN

          Comments about Audio-Technica AT2041SP - AT2020 and AT2021 Microphone Pack:

          The 2020 makes and excellent stereo pair for acoustic guitar. Very open and airy. I first used it in a state of the art studio where the mic selection was vast and costly. I was dubious when the engineer recommended it. But, by golly, he was right! I don't know anything about the 2021...never used it. But I now own my own 2020 and often choose it over my AKG 414 for recording guitar AND vocals. Excellent value for the bucks. It would be a bargain at twice the price.
