Audio-Technica partners with Hungry for Music to Celebrate AT2020 microphone sale milestone

Audio-Technica is celebrating one million sales of its iconic AT2020 cardioid condenser microphone by donating one million yen to Hungry for Music, a non-profit organisation dedicated to expanding opportunities in music for children.

The donation by A-T is a fitting one, as the AT2020 Cardioid Condenser was the first side-address microphone priced under USD100 to provide professional-quality sound – greatly expanding access to the technology of sound creation and ushering in a golden age for the home studio.

And in the two decades since, creators of all stripes – musicians, streamers, podcasters, et al. – have depended on, and been smitten by, the clean articulation and intelligibility of the microphone’s sound, its rugged design, and reliable performance as it brought so many artistic visions to life.

Audio-Technica U.S. president and CEO, Manabu Aoki., noted: “For nearly 20 years, the AT2020 has been a springboard for creators everywhere. With our donation to Hungry for Music, we hope to provide a similar boost to the creative expression of disadvantaged youth. By eliminating the economic barriers to learning an instrument, Hungry for Music makes it possible for more children to share in the joy of music-making, and we’re proud to support the organization in those efforts.”
