When you are just getting started with podcasting, you might not afford those pricey microphones. The Audio Technica AT2020 is a condenser studio microphone that is cheap and offers superb quality (especially if you use it in well-treated rooms). You are going to need the right mounts or accessories to get started with your audio recordings:
On Stage DS7200B Adjustable Desk Microphone Stand: this is perfect for beginners. If you have a limited amount of space on your desk or can’t afford more advanced stands, this one can more than hold your AT2020 microphone.
On Stage Stands MS7701 Tripod Boom Microphone Stand: this is a durable tripod mic stand and boom combination. These are easy to store too.
Nady MPF-6 6-Inch Clamp On Microphone Pop Filter: want to stop plosives and protect your mic? This pop filter is affordable and does the job. It includes boom and microphone stand clamp.
Samson SP01 Shockmount Spider Mount: isolates mic from physical vibration, floor, and stand noise. We have tested it with AT2020 and works just fine.
RODE PSA 1 Swivel Mount Studio Microphone Boom Arm: holds up to 4.4 lbs in weight. It gives you two desk mounting options. Rotates 360 degrees and is an affordable option for more advanced broadcasters.
There are many more accessories you can pick up to get more out of your AT2020 microphone (adapters, cables, …). Having one of the above mentioned stands is a good place to start though.
