The AT2021 Cardioid Condenser Microphone from Audio-Technica is designed for general instrument capturing, vocals, amplifier cabinets, and similar applications. The microphone's small diaphragm condenser element yields a cardioid polar pattern for minimal noise at the off-axis sections of the capsule. There is an extended frequency response, providing versatility both in the studio and on stage. High SPL handling suppresses distortion when capturing transient sources such as drums, percussion, electric guitars, bass, and piano. The package includes a microphone stand clamp and a soft protective pouch.
