Designed for outdoor recording in indie films, TV shoots, nature shows, and documentary projects, the Audio-Technica AT8035 long shotgun microphone utilizes an extended interference tube to yield sharper directionality and more uniform off-axis tone than many shorter shotgun mics.

The AT8035's moderate sensitivity delivers optimal performance when paired with high-gain, low-noise microphone preamps. With a selectable low-cut filter at 80 Hz, the AT8035 is capable of delivering clear sound while attenuating rumble and bass buildup. Plus, its full-spectrum frequency response utilizes a gentle increase in high frequencies to enhance intelligibility.

The durable housing ensures rugged dependability while maintaining a light weight that won't burden your boompole or camera, and the included accessories accommodate mounting the AT8035 to a mic stand, boompole, or camera-mount microphone holder. Plus, the AT8035 can be operated via phantom power or a single AA battery for flexible device compatibility.

Quality Sound for Outdoor Shoots
The 14.5" long AT8035 uses a long interference tube and a supercardioid polar pattern to yield highly focused on-axis directionality while attenuating rear-entry sound and rejecting sound at the sides. Compared to the omnidirectional mics found in most cameras, the AT8035 is far more effective at capturing distant sources and reducing ambience. Due to the nature of long interference tubes, the AT8035's tone will be most natural when shooting outdoors or in spaces with minimal reflections/reverb.
Bass Roll-Off
The high-pass filter can be set to flat or 80 Hz to roll off low-frequency noise from common sources such as air conditioners and traffic.
Battery or Phantom Powered
Thanks to its 3-pin XLR output and compliance with 11 to 52 VDC phantom powering, the AT8035 is compatible with a variety of handheld audio recorders, field recorders, and mixer adapters as well as built-in preamps on many camcorders and cinema cameras. When using devices that don't offer phantom power, the AT8035 may be powered by a single AA battery (included).
Ideal for Boompole Mounting
The AT8035 includes a mic clip for easy placement on a mic stand or boompole. Alternatively, mount the AT8035 in the Audio-Technica AT8415 shockmount (available separately) to impede the transfer of vibrations between your boompole and the mic. The AT8035 also includes two rubber O-rings that expand the microphone's diameter to fit the larger mic holders found on many high-end cameras.
Windscreen Minimizes Wind Noise
The AT8035 has a foam windscreen to reduce unwanted wind noise from breezes, fans, heaters, and air conditioners. Enhanced attenuation of wind noise is possible with the addition of an optional windshield such as the Rycote 24cm Classic-Softie.

For maximum reduction of handling noise and wind noise in indoor or outdoor environments, consider the separately available Rycote Windshield Kit 6, a complete windjammer, windshield, and shockmount suspension system.

Which case comes with this microphone? I have an old AT815b and my case just fell apart. I need a replacement case
Asked by: Kenneth
The Audio-Technica AT8035 Long Shotgun Microphone includes the Audio-Technica SG1 Case. Audio-Technica specifies the SG3 Case for use with the AT815b Line+ Gradient Condenser Microphone, which is not offered by B&H at this time.

Can this mic pick a sound from a distance like 5 or 6 feet?
Asked by: Adam
Yes, it will still pick up audio at that distance, however for better sound quality try to stay within a 3-5 feet range from the subject you recording.

Is the AT8035 moisture resistant?
Asked by: Alex
No, the Audio-Technica AT8035 Long Shotgun Microphone is not moisture-resistant. As an option for a long shotgun microphone that is moisture-resistant, you can use the Deity Microphones S-Mic 2 Moisture-Resistant Shotgun Microphone (B&H # DESMIC2) or the RODE NTG3B Moisture-Resistant Shotgun Microphone (B&H # RONTG3B).

Could one get power from a POE connection for a ptz camera to provide the phantom power for this mic connected to a ptz camera?
Asked by: smith
Microphones are not wired to accept PoE instead of phantom power, unfortunately, even though the voltage can be similar. In addition, regardless of whether a microphone requires 48V phantom power, it will also always require amplification first, before it can connect to the input on the PTZ camera. This is because the signal provided by a microphone is "mic level" voltage, which is much lower than the "line level" voltage your PTZ camera expects, and even when powered by 48V, the signal voltage will be the same. A microphone preamplifier is required to bring this signal to a useable level. You could use the Rolls MP13 Mini-Mic Preamp (B&H # ROMP13) with an XLR female to 3.5mm TRS cable such as the Kopul XRSM 3-Pin XLR Female to 3.5mm RA Stereo Mini-Plug Cable - 3' (B&H # KOXRSM03B), in any length you prefer, to connect to the camera's 3.5mm input. The Audio-Technica AT8035 Long Shotgun Microphone requires 11 to 52V for power and the Rolls MP13 can supply 24V. You will also need to use a standard XLR mic cable like the Kopul Premium Performance 3000 Series Neutrik XLR Male to XLR Female Microphone Cable - 10' (B&H # KOM3010), in any length you prefer, to connect the AT8035 microphone to the mic input on the MP13 preamp.

question

Do you need to purchase separately an XLR cable to connect it to a digital voice recorder like the TASCAM DR100 MKII? If so, any recommendations for which cable to get?
Asked by: Joe
The Audio Technica AT8035 will not include a cable. For connecting to a recorder like the DR-100 MKII you will need an XLR mic cable. The Kopul 3000 series cables are an excellent choice. Available in lengths from 1 to 100 feet depending on your application. Please see the following link: http://bhpho.to/1FcPvxy
