The Electro Voice RE20 is a dynamic microphone with a cardioids polar pattern. The casing is made out of steal and you don’t have to worry at all about this microphone getting damaged from a drop/fall. The microphone is built to last a long time and it is great in so many different situations. The RE20 is truly a work horse type of microphone, it can do it all and do it well. You can use this microphone on kick drums, vocals, bass and guitar cabinets. Since we have had this microphone we really have not found something that it is not good at.


This open circuit dynamic microphone has an impedance of 150 ohms and a frequency response of 45Hz-18 kHz. I love the way this microphone sounds on our Pearl kick, it brings that thump while still keeping the sound punchy. We don’t even have to mess with the EQ at all when we record kicks with the Electro Voice RE20.
Depending on what your main use for this microphone is I do suggest getting a good quality shock mount for it, Electro Voice does make a shock mount for it but you have to pay for it separately and it is not cheap. The shock mount itself will cost you a little over a hundred dollars.
Since you can use this microphone for almost any applications, live or studio; it makes it a must have for any band or group that is a dynamic group recording not only vocals but instruments as well. You will need a microphone that can handle whatever you throw at it and the RE20 is just that. I was not too sold on Electro Voice microphones before we got this one, but since we have been using it I have to respect the company now because this is by far one of the best all around microphones that I have used.
