Fully Featured Design
The MTR201 is a large, 1-inch gold-sputtered diaphragm studio condenser microphone. It features a cardioid pickup pattern that provides increased isolation of a sound source and is designed to handle high SPLs of up to 132 dB. It also has a 10 dB attenuation switch for handling ultra-high levels. The MTR201 produces a smooth, extended frequency response, as well as low self-noise, and a wide dynamic range perfect for recording. In addition, its internally shockmounted capsule also reduces handling noise and external vibrations. This rugged die cast mic is bundled with a pop filter, shockmount, and protective carry case.

The MTR201 is perfect for capturing vocal performances in the studio. The mic's cardioid pickup pattern provides increased isolation, avoiding unwanted noise, and highlighting only the vocalist. As such, the MTR201 is ideal for any vocal performance where excellent rear-rejection is needed or use it as the "Mid" mic in a Mid-Side stereo setup. And, with a wide 20Hz–20kHz frequency response, the MTR201 can capture the most dynamic of voices with ease.

Instruments and More
Featuring a wide dynamic range and the ability to handle high SPLs, the MTR201 is ideal for use as a room microphone or for close micing a variety of instruments both live and in the studio. From aggressive guitar cabinets and drums to vibrant pianos, winds, and other preferred instruments, the MTR201 is designed to faithfully reproduce a diverse range of instrument tones. And, the previously mentioned vocal micing techniques can be easily applied to all of these instruments given the situation and desired sound.

Good Starter Mic


This is a great starter mic for anyone who is interested in using a consender mic but can't afford anything to crazy in price. Good sound for a cheap price. This is a hands-on product review by Tamir @ Sam Ash Edison

Good Inexpensive All-Around Mic


The Samson MTR201A Condenser Microphone has got a wonderfully crisp sound that does great things for voice, while having the body and clarity to get some great guitar, piano and anything you set in front of it. There is a -10 dB emulation attenuation switch that can be enabled to reduce input for large levels of input for this uni-directional/cardioid microphone. One thing for sure you will not find better in this price range. This is a real hands-on product review from Rick @ Sam Ash Phoenix.
