I am a student, musician, writer, and pretty good line dancer residing in beautiful Nashville, TN. I had used two on my floor toms in a session and fell in love with the sound and knew I had to buy one. You loose a lot of air in the spectrum and it picks up much more low end than you probably will want in any rhythm or lead guitar track. Like I said, this mic is built like a tank. Bottom Line?

I am a student, musician, writer, and pretty good line dancer residing in beautiful Nashville, TN. I had used two on my floor toms in a session and fell in love with the sound and knew I had to buy one. You loose a lot of air in the spectrum and it picks up much more low end than you probably will want in any rhythm or lead guitar track.
Like I said, this mic is built like a tank. Bottom Line? Get over your preconceived notions about the RE 20 and buy one for your studio I have however, played shows where the sound guys have used it on bass amps, and as far as I could tell it worked great. They are pretty versatile but they are best known as vocal mics.
Radio stations have used them for years. They also work well on kick drums, bass amps, and other applications. I tend to prefer large diaphragm condenser mics when recording vocals, but I have heard from colleagues that this mic has worked wonders for them. I personally prefer what it can do with drums and bass. The mic is great for bass amps, and was my go-to mic for quite a while, until I expanded my collection and started working at a studio where they had more mics.
Kick drums also sound pretty great with this, especially when used in tandem with an AKG D I once tried it as an overhead mic just for fun, and surprisingly, it worked rather well. It gave the drums a fatter, thicker sound that made them sound sort of vintage.
I once recorded drums and electric guitar in the same room, and this mic was hands down the best at reducing bleed from the guitar I used it on kick drum. Given how inexpensive it is, any beginning engineer or anyone with a low budget should make this one of their first investments.
RE series wired live performance microphones
Ken Theriot Electro-Voice RE20 This is an incredible mic for anyone doing voice-over work, podcasts, or any kind of broadcasting. Its sound quality is amazing and its resistance to recording p-pops is a huge time saver if you are recording vocals. The mic is also excellent for kick drum or acoustic guitar recording. It is now my go-to vocal mic. Like the SM7, the EV RE20 is an end-address you talk into the end and not the side, as with most large diaphragm condensers dynamic mic found most often in use by radio DJs and other broadcasters. Also like the SM7B, the EV RE20 has a "cardioid" pickup pattern, which means it is most sensitive to what is directly in front of it, while rejecting sound from the rear.

Sell Yours More Information From its humble beginnings creating a PA system for the Notre Dame football team, Electro-Voice has grown into a major player in the world of pro audio, most notably in the arena of broadcasting and PA systems. While the Electro-Voice RE20 is classified as a broadcast microphone, it succeeds in any application where the sound source is bass-heavy, high volume, close to the mic, or all three. An internal pop filter makes this especially good for situations where vocals are delivered at close range, like voice-over work, broadcasting, or the singer that just has to get intimate with mic to sing their best. Unflappable What makes the RE20 exceptional is the clarity, flat response and transparency you get no matter what you throw at it.
