    Great Acoustic Mic

    Did a shootout of mics including the AT4021, Rode NT5, Josephson C42, AKG C 451 B, Telefunkin M60, Bock 195. The AT4021 won by far. More focused, clarified sound. Overall character of the sound was awesome. Captured the sound of my Martin 000-17sm perfectly.

    Audio-Technica AT4021 for acoustic guitar

    Great mic for acoustic, it brings the shimmer and sparkle.

    Best Acoustic Mic ever

    I always loved the mojo of the 2021 but it had the nastiest noisefloor at 19 db!! This baby has less noise than the SM81 but it just has a better coloration (though still very flat response) and just brings that magical presence out in string noise/harmonics that NEVER gets annoying. Amazing Mic (try on toms too)

    The only reason that I'm giving this mic a 4.5 and not a 5.0 is that I wish the pad, & response switch wasn't inset. Now to the meat and potatoes. I bought this mic for acoustic guitar in my studio. Upon opening the box, I'll say that the build of this mic is solid. Doesn't feel lightweight and cheap.The sound is fantastic. I play a Breedlove so was looking for something that would fit well with it, and this mic does all that. Very nice flat response, not too bright. Last night I mic'd up a mandolin and did a comparison against my Shure Ksm44. Myself, and the mandolin player both agreed that the AT4021 sounded better. Or maybe I should say that it did a better job capturing the mandolin. I've also used this mic for recording tambourine, and shakers, and it works great. When I was shopping for a new mic, I almost bought the more expensive AT4051, I'm glad I didn't as you get your monies worth with this baby.
