Product Highlights

The Audio-Technica AT2035 Cardioid Condenser Microphone is a well suited solution for home studios, project recording and live sound reinforcement alike. The side-address condenser microphone features a cardioid polar pattern for minimal feedback and off-axis noise. The element and output stage combine to produce a smooth yet natural audio quality with low noise.

An 80Hz high-pass filter switch eliminates low frequency hum and any associated noise.

The cost effective AT2035 is an ideal choice for capturing vocals, general instruments and speaker cabinets.

      AT2035 mics are used to record performances of professional, and serious amateur instrumental and choral musical groups. Music recorded is typically classical. Condenser microphones do this very well and the AT2035 mics perform completely to my expectations, good directionality, sensitivity and frequency response. I made the purchase decision based on spec sheet performance and recording results bear them out. Only thing I don't like is the shock absorbing mount included with the mic. While its elastic is quite substantial, if it breaks for some reason, there is no other way to mount these mics. Replacement mount from Audio Technica is pretty pricy. Oh, one other thing. The mic is a cardiod directional and there's no indication on the mic itself or in the literature, which side is the front to be pointed at the music source, and which is the back. I guessed that the logo side is the front, and the side with the switches is the back. Subsequent testing proved that to be the correct guess. It would be nice if the mics themselves could be so marked by AT.

      This mic is a great starter side-address condenser. it handles fairly high SPL and has a fairly linear frequency response. I have used it on B3, Guitar Cabs and as Drum Overheads. I have found it to add some coloration on the top end, but nothing that can't be dealt with. For the price, it can be tossed around and left onstage without having to worry about it.

        Comments about Audio-Technica AT2035 Cardioid Condenser Side-Address Microphone:

        Everything included seems of good design, it looks as though it will last a long while. The cable is just the right length for my home studio and doesn't give me any problems. As for the microphone itself, when wearing headphones I am amazed by the ability it has to pick up noise but (so sensitivity) but all of the unwanted noise is mostly a non-issue thanks to the cardioid pick-up pattern. This is my first microphone purchase.

            I use this to record voice over at my home studio. I love the warm sound it picks up. I have a low rumble in my voice and it picks that up very cleanly. This mic works best from about 6 - 10 inches away. It also has great rejection from the sides and back.

                Comments about Audio-Technica AT2035 Cardioid Condenser Side-Address Microphone:

                Vocal and acoustic piano recording so far - plan to use it in other ways, creating sound fonts as well, radio advertising demos. Placed a marble in a glass bowl, got the marble in a centrifugal spin on the edge of the bowl, then moved a stainless steel pot up and down to create a velocity chamber. Hung this mic at about 45 degrees and 6 inches from the edge of the bowl. And the sound this mic picked up is fantastic. Then moved the recording into a sound font creation software - wow - don't know everything about acoustic sound - but I got better than I expected out of this mic - seems every detail is there - and it melts well into 67 tones - putting some Hall effects to this as well as Chorus effects - was not sure what I wanted - but I got what I was hoping for - a wild strange sound that folks asked - "How'd you do that?" Plan on purchasing about three more of these mics - and let the fun begain. For the price the quality in this digital age - well I am satisfied - not sure what your expectation level may be - but the details shine with this mic. I have a GT Mic that I still love for my own vocals. But this mic picks up my vocals well - I still EQ everything of my own vocals - seems I like to hang in the base level range a lot.

                    I use it mainly for voical and string music. I am novice in recording but not in music. Works well and quiet, not picking any noise from my refrigirator even when put a couple of feet away. The sound is a bit flat, not colorful.

                          I definitely recommend the AT2035 for anyone just starting home recording, on a limited budget, and want quality sounding tracks. I've used this mic with excellent results coupled with an SM57 for guitar cabinets, alone for both acoustic and vocals, and am pleasantly surprised with the sound. I've seen reviews where people have had problems with the shockmount but, so far so good here!!!

                                      I use this microphone for vocals and it works great. It is great deal since it is only $ more than the microphone below it and also includes a shock mount, which is worth $ dollars on its own.

                                      Gives warm sound to vocals and clarity to acoustic instruments. Has a great -10db function for those rather loud sessions that need to be toned down a little.

                                        The sound is brilliant and crisp. Great all purpose mic as there is no strange accent. Very low noise. Solid construction and nice finish. This is my favorite mic so far.

                                            I am using this for recording and live performance. I am a vocalist and flutist. This microphone allows natural singing by allowing you to stand a foot or more from it. It captures your voice without singing "into the mic" which can actually wreck your performance.
                                            I also have the Audio Technica ATM710 which has very similar qualities.

                                            The reason the AT2035 is a natural in live settings as well as in the studio is due to the fact that it is a cardioid mic. You will be surprised at the lack of feedback you will get on stage.

                                            I am very happy with this microphone.
                                            ps; I bought one for my son last Christmas.... After hearing how this mic transmits clear, full and undistorted vocals, I had to get one for myself!
