Its clean on-axis response provides maximum intelligibility of vocals up to 90 degrees off-axis, while rejecting off-axis noise thanks to its massive rear rejection.

On acoustic string instruments a mic like this is a clear choice, literally! The sound it picks up is as rich and full or as thin and jangly as that of the source.
It delivers a superb vocal image that is brimming with uncolored detail and clarity.
Considering it can handle high volumes from instruments such as drums, and works equally as well for more subtle items such as strings, it’s sure to become a “go-to” item for any sound engineer.
Eisley’s music is very vocal-centric, and the amazing accuracy of the SR Series mics really takes the vocals to the next level. More so than any other instrument, everyone knows how a human voice sounds in real life, and when you can actually deliver that sound in a concert, it makes a tremendous difference.
Mark Schwartzkopf, SOUND ENGINEER
They sounded like a record! Stuart Duncan, the fiddle player, came off the stage and told Josh Trivett of Moonstruck Management who was in charge of the talent for the festival, ‘I don’t know who your front of house guy is, but that was one of the best mixes I have ever had.’ The SR20’s are like studio quality mics that really behave themselves in extremely tough situations!
