Most small condensers seem to be designed for drums and are strongly colored. By those standards, this mic is very natural and flat. It is small and easy to balance over a violin on a long boom or tuck up close to a seated sitar player, and between the low self-noise and the insane SPL rating will handle anything from a soft guitar to a snare head. I've made it my workhorse mic for years and rarely been disappointed. It is a hot mic, too -- great for when you have a cheap board or a long cable run. It ain't a large-diaphragm condenser, but if all you've tried on your acoustics and drums up till now are SM57's, hang this guy and prepare for an ear-opening experience.

I'm a big AT fan and have several of their mic's, that I use frequently and consider "Go To" mic's The Pro 37 is not one. A dissapointment in fact. It just does not sound "right" on 3 different acoustics, have tried as a neck mic and body mic. Even tried a tambo, still not so good.
The one thing to consider in my review is that I typically use 350 to 1,000 buck mics on acoustics so my reference point is slanted. I don' know how the P37 compares with similar priced products.
Save your money and buy a Shure SM81. Get a definitive pencil mic.

          Initially, I bought it to amplify acoustic guitars on stage. In the end it turned out to be a Swiss-Army-Knife-type of tool. Due to the great combination of sound/size/SPL and a very friendly behaviour whe it comes to feedback, it is my favourite device on stage. For 8+ years we have been useing it on the road, now. Mainly acoustic instruments. The latest expereience was a drum overhead setup in front of one of this new column speaker systems. Briliant results!

          I have 4 of the AT Pro 37R mics in my possession for several years. I have used two of these about 40" high on stage for live shows with a 5-piece bluegrass band; used live as an instrument mic for a single instrument; and, used in our home studio for acoustic guitar, lead vocals, harmony vocals, mandolin, and banjo. Love these mics and find them easy to work with. They even work for left-handed pickers!

              We use 2 of these mics in place of 1 large condenser for bluegrass. Put these in xy set up and they capture vocals and instruments with no feedback. We even pointed our foh speakers back at us just to see if we could get any squeal or rumble. Why use anything else, and for the price they are more than great. I would spend much more if needed to get the quality and versatility of these.

                  Believe it or not, I mainly use the Pro37 for vocals. This mic is great for Southern Gospel Quartets as well as the normal use of it in the studio for instruments. I highly recommend this mic.

                  What a great little mic, don't let the size fool you I use this on my overheads for my cymbals and it's really good it picks up every thing. What's good about this mic is, that you do not have to have this turned up loud at all. Well worth the buy

                  Wow! I am so pleased with this little mic that's not quite as big as a nice cigar I can not tell you, but I will anyway. After a day struggling to figure out how this mic and all my other equipment could ever get along without crazy feedback I finally figured it out and the game was on. After several extended practice sessions and two live gigs I'm in love with this little guy. This thing will do anything asked of it from my brief experience as far as pure acoustic guitar and mandolin goes. I needed something for live application and it was a toss up between the AT-2035 and the Pro-37. I find it hard to believe that the 2035 would be any better but it would be a lot bigger that's for sure. I like the small size of the 37 and it's almost weightless! No regrets here.

                  Comments about Audio-Technica PRO 37 Small Diaphragm Cardioid Condenser Microphone:

                  I purchased two of the Audio Technica Pro-37's a couple of years ago to get a warmer more acoustic recorded sound as compared to the SM 57 I also own. I also have started using the Pro-37 on stage with the bluegrass band I play with because of their natural acoustic tone reproduction for mandolin and guitar. These mics are physically small but don't let that scare you off as the sound is not small and you will appreciate the size and lighter weight on the mic stands.
