An affordable dual diaphragm microphone suitable for many applications.
The versatile Audio-Technica AT2050 is a multi-pattern large diaphragm condenser microphone that provides consistent, superior performance. The AT2020 mic offers you switchable cardioid, omnidirectional and figure-eight polar pattern settings. The AT2050 mic's dual large diaphragms are gold-vaporized and aged to achieve optimum characteristics over years of use. Equipped with a switchable 80 Hz high-pass filter and 10 dB pad, the Audio-Technica AT2050 microphone is ideal for studio and live sound use on vocals, piano, strings, drum overheads, guitar amps, and more.
With high SPL handling and a wide dynamic range, the AT-2050 is equipped for any recording scenario. Kick it into the omnidirectional pattern and record an entire vocal ensemble at once. Stick it between that guitar and banjo in figure-8 and capture your favorite bluegrass duo with no background noise creeping in. The cardioid setting produces excellent vocal clarity, but can just as easily be placed in front of that Marshall stack. High SPL resistance means it can stand up to the screaming British crunch with no tone lost and no harsh clipping.
Pro Quality at an Amateur Price
Users of the entire AT-20 line have been consistently floored by the pro-level quality delivered by such budget-friendly condensers. The added versatility of the AT-2050 only expands the series' reputation for value. Grab two and your placement options grow even more extensive. Stack a pair in the figure-8 setting for a classic Blumlein pair, and get exceptional stereo imaging. Try a spaced pair set in omni mode to stick your listener in the middle of any room.
Built to Last
Designed and tested with the care and quality Audio-Technica brings to all its mics, the AT-2050 is built to last.
