There are some mics that claim to be studio workhorses, and then there are some mics that are studio workhorses. The Electro Voice RE20 is one of those mics that can really do it all! A long-time secret weapon of engineers in the know, the RE20 easily moves from kick drums to bass cabs, from vocals to guitar cabinets. It's been seen recently handling vocal duties for Radiohead's Thom Yorke among others, and it's been a long-time favorite of broadcasters. And unlike most directional mics the RE20 is virtually immune to proximity effect, letting you close mic a sound source while still capturing a natural sound. Fancy yourself a "real" engineer? You'd better have an RE20 in your mic locker!

Highly recommended, you won't regret buying one.
But would it work for me?
The answer is yesssss! Right off the bat, it was outstanding. The difference is incredible. Do yourself a favour and get this microphone. You will not be disappointed. I'm back to enjoying the production of the podcast once again!
The RE-20 is the venerated holy grail of broadcasting. Creamy radio audio, retro 60s charm.
This mic gives a lot of freedom of movement. With my old Shure Beta 57a mic, I had to be right up on it to sound great. The sweet spot was the size of a plumb. That ended up making my back and neck tense doing a long live show. With the RE-20, the sweet spot is the size of a basketball. I can move all over and sound great. Will extend my life span! (Good for us cranky, creaky old guys. I turn 49 this week.) You can also talk more naturally with an RE-20, it doesn't require conscious or subconscious "mic technique" that other mics require to sound really good.
This mic is built like a tank. The RE-20 comes with a 3-year factory warranty. What else in the WORLD comes with a 3-year factory warranty these days??
Available in any color you like, as long as it's green. To be more specific: somewhere between Vietnam-era US military camouflage green and old-school hospital room green.
I skipped the fancy accessories, like the expensive RE-20 specific shock mount ($125) and the RE-20 specific pop filter. A standard condenser mic shock mount and boom arm works fine. And while this mic, more than most, will work fine without a windscreen, a standard cheap foam windscreen stretched over the end makes it sound even better. No need to get the dorky little RE-20 specific pop filter.
Used correctly and with a good pre-amp, the RE-20 is a sword of truth cutting through the murky swamp of media lies and statist COINTELPRO sheeple-bleeting horizontal enforcement of injustice.
If you want to hear some stellar two-minute audio tests I did with the RE-20 I bought on Amazon, Google:
Freedom Feens Two-Minute Audio Test of Electro-Voice RE-20 Microphone
It really picks up all the minor details of my voice when I'm doing VO work and makes my voice really boom. This Mic does require a bit more power so if you have an interface that doesn't supply enough gain you might want to consider a cloudlifter or something similar.
