For live recording, its rugged construction and low prices will make it a perfect companion for capturing percussion, acoustic guitar, hi-hat, overheads and piano.

“wide dynamic range”

Listening to this microphone is truly amazing especially when considering the price range. It can also serve as the main stereo pair or microphone boosters, for users with a larger budget.

“excellent frequency response”

The AT2031 offers excellent frequency response, and gives accurate and airy sound on sources difficult to capture, such as piano and strings.


With its gentle filter slope of 6 dB / Octave at 150 Hz, low frequencies are controlled in a very soft and natural way.


Star-shapped grille

A star-shaped metal grille protects the element. Four sets of quadruple slots allow for precise directivity control.



Due to its numerous qualities, the AT2031 works well as an affordable option for an ORTF or X / Y configuration, when using two units together.


AT8405a stand clamp

The AT8405a stand clamp that comes with the AT2031 is also suitable for all cylindrical microphones with a diameter of 21mm.
