AT2020 or AKG 120?


Hello all. I'm looking into getting an inexpensive condenser for vocals and maybe drum overheading. I'm looking to spend about $100. I'm debating over the Audio-Technica AT2020 and the AKG Perception 120. I do like that the 120 has a bass roll off switch and a -20db pad but I can live without these. Also open to any suggestions. Thanks.

No opinions? Alrighty. I've come to a conclusion that the best compromise would be...drum roll please...the AT2035!! With a bit more research I've found that this mic has the bass roll off and the -10db pad. And as an added bonus, a custom shockmount! Well thanks anyway guys .
