OVERVIEW

Unobtrusive clip-on mic for brasswinds and percussion!

The Audio-Technica PRO 35 clip-on microphone is designed for sax, brass, toms, and percussion. The PRO35 is a cardioid condenser mic that excels in high-SPL (sound pressure level) applications and is ideal for active stage performances. Its extended frequency response captures subtle nuances of the performance. The included UniMount clip permits accurate positioning and provides shock resistance while protecting the element. The microphone's cardioid polar pattern reduces pickup of sounds from the sides and rear, improving isolation of the desired sound source.

¢The A-T PRO 35 includes the AT8538 power module, which accepts the PRO 35's locking cable connector and terminates to an XLR male connector for a wired connection to a mixing console etc.

(If you're looking for a wireless solution, the A-T PRO 35cW terminates to a 4-pin connector for use with A-T UniPak bodypack wireless transmitters.)

Requires phantom power.

      Comments about Audio-Technica PRO 35 Cardioid Condenser Clip-on Instrument Microphone:

      I have used this for years and overall I love it. However, the jack is so big in comparison to the wire that the wire inside the insulation breaks often right near the jack. I have had to have it fixed fairly often by clipping the wire a little shorter each time. Suggestions? Install a clip on the jack so it can be clipped to pants or a back pocket or something - instead of just hanging onto the floor or bunched up in a pocket. The wires break very easily.

        Comments about Audio-Technica PRO 35 Cardioid Condenser Clip-on Instrument Microphone:

        It is definitively perfect for my sax but versatile enough to use for congas and bongos. This microphone is amazing. It handle a well balance range of frequencies and delivers a powerful gain. Just be extra careful with the attached thin and fragile cable that comes out of it. You will regret being too rough with it.

          Comments about Audio-Technica PRO 35 Cardioid Condenser Clip-on Instrument Microphone:

          I have used the PRO35 for five years now. I've played with it in both large and small venue with great results.
          I have the hard wired and the cordless. Both sound great. Sound is a little thin on the palm keys on my Soprano. I highly recommend this mic.

              Thanks for the fast shipping! Ordered days before a gig to open up for The Fabulous Thunderbirds, knowing that they wouldn't make it in time. But I was wrong! They came the morning of the gig. The 4 horns were free to move around the stage and rock the house! Thanks again MF, you came through again for me!

              Great value for the price vs other costly ones I've seen. Light weight, has cable stays to secure mic cord. Fits in trumpet bell even with harmon mute in- Would NOT recommend for un-muted horn as it tends to distort but I wanted it only for muted horn and for the price can't be beat. With only 6 ft XLR cable, need something like my pre-amp to plug in to as most likely you will be more than 6ft from PA on stage.

                Comments about Audio-Technica PRO 35 Cardioid Condenser Clip-on Instrument Microphone:

                Clips on and works well with my tenor and soprano saxes. I use the XLR adapter connection to my floor pedal mixer when playing live. I will later get the AT belt pack transmitter and receiver for wireless. But I don't move around much on stage so wired is fine. Previously (and still do sometimes) use a dynamic Beta 58 so resetting the eq and levels for the AT Pro 35 is still a work in progress. But I think the AT Pro 35 has good dynamic range and sounds a bit more crisp. Helps me compete with guitars in groups when not out doing my solo act. Very nice mic for the money.

                Bell mic for Sax

                By Steven Brewster

                from Montana

                Comments about Audio-Technica PRO 35 Cardioid Condenser Clip-on Instrument Microphone:

                I have been wanting a bell mounted Sax microphone for years (DECADES) but thought they would be much more expensive to get a good one. Didn't want to buy one on the web for fear the owner had a problem with it and wanted to dump it on someone else. Being able to purchase this one for under $100 from a dealer was awsome. It is exactly like new and works great. Thanks for providing your service.
