      I use this for recording voice over and for recording on my portable 8 track studio.

      I bought an inexpensive M-Audio DMP3 pre-amp to help with the slight "muddiness" of both microphones.

      Overall, good value for the money, I'm not expecting amazing results for the price.

      The small diaphragm mic was very difficult to operate. It was very touchy and I didn't like the sound.
      The large diaphragm mic was the opposite. I tried it on vocals and a cymbal. I'm not sure what I liked about the sound I got from it, except that it seemed real and undistorted.
      I don't think it is worth it just for the large mic. I think I would use it, however there are plenty of other mics in this price range.

        Good microphone set for recording guitar and voice. The AT2020 is a little on the heavy side so, if you use a boom microphone stand, be sure it's a good quality stand that can support it.

            I bought two of these packages so I would have the two medium condenser mics along with some other medium and large condenser mics for up close recording of individual instruments and use the two pencil mics to capture the stereo image from back in the audience. These two mics in this package do not disappoint -- the aural quality and clarity is great and considering the price they are phenomenal.

                    bought this for a small home project studio. Very cheap for 2 condenser mics. A/B these mics against shure sm27 condenser. Both me and my kid liked the 2020 better, felt it was clearer and more realistic sounding on both voice and acoustic guitar. The 2021 sounded thinner with less bottom end. We'll use them on drums, guitar cabinets.

                      2020 - Smooth lows, crisp highs, and natural midrange. A fantastic mic at a very good value.
                      2021 - Excellent for highs and midrange. Unfortunally gets overwhelmed easily by lows. However, for most of its applications that is not a problem.
