Recorded bass, sax and vocals with the RE 20: great mic!

By Mo A on February 16, 2020

Such a keeper mic. It sounds *almost* flat and is usable even when your room isn't the best. Unflattering, in that it doesn't hype anything. It can get slightly sibilant with certain voices, but nothing you can't EQ out. Best dynamic i've ever used, period.

Works great, killer for Saxophone.

Very versatile and a great cost benefit

By Andre A on February 9, 2019

been trying to find that perfect 70's kick thump with nice low end, but with out too much click. If I want click I'll eq it in. Been experimenting with an AKG D20 I picked up and and RE20 I just grabbed. Both are killer for the vibe I'm looking for. takes EQ nice! Add a bit of 60htz, cut some 350 and sounds great in front of my double head kicks. yeah!

Industry standard broadcast mic that just happens to kick ass on bass cab, kick drum, anywhere the sound is low and loud. Pretty much a must-have for any commercial studio's mic locker. Famously the preferred vocal mic of Stevie Wonder - so, try it on vocals too! It has never worked for me in that application, but that's because I go for big, super hi-fi sounding vocal tones with generally tube condensers.

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.
