I started out with an inexpensive Dynamic microphone from a music store. It was cheap. I used that up, and noticed the poor quality it was giving, so I moved up to a better Dynamic microphone from the same store. Again, loved it, but then got tired of it. Wanted something better. I finally wanted to leave the Dynamic mics and step up to the studio-type, condenser microphone. I noticed this one on this web site first, of course, because of the price and the look. I read up on it, and it looked perfect. I got it, and realized I needed a Phantom Powered box to power it. (Which I found out can come from a mixer, or a box that you can buy that just provides the power). I borrowed a friend's mixer, and WOW. That's what it all boils down to. I hooked the mic up through it and it sounded amazing. I was picking up sounds from all the way across the room crisp and clear. THEN, I messed with the mixer and truly brought the best out of the microphone. Adding treble by turning up the Hi's, adding more Bass to my voice by turning up the Low's. I recommend two things. Get this mic, then get a small mixer for an amazing sound you're going to love. (Also, I was worried about the "speaking and yelling too loud and it records that way" before I bought the mic, but the condenser in itself fixes that problem. Got a pop-screen and it's near perfect. AMAZING microphone for its price!)

This mic really seems terrible. Everything sounds distant and echoey with it! And I'm recording in a dampened room. I don't understand how people can love this thing when all I get is lackluster echoes! The only way I can make it sound decent is to sing into the TOP of it at close range -- if you sing into the sides (the way it's supposed to be used) it sounds like you're singing from Mars! Just awful!

Who says quality has to cost

By Verz

from Wichita KS

This was the first condensor mic I bought and it was a great choice. The vocals are clean and have just that bit of warmth that smooths out your vocals. I've since bought and sold mics within the price range of the AT3035 and none compare to the sound this thing produces. If you want a first mic you cant go wrong with this one.

AT-3035 A very GOOD Vocal Mic.

My vocal and guitar tracks shot up in Quality the day I started using this Mic.It was recommended to me by a fellow Sound Engineer. It will pick up a dog barking four blocks away so it is not very good for live performance. It is great for studio work if you can\t afford a Neauman. This mic has servrd me very very well for years in my studio. very versatile. bought it new about ten years ago and it is still my go to for vocs and acoustic guitar.

No good for sax

By gmsax

from LA, CA

The rating is useIess. The recordings are nonusable. I cannot get a good saxophone sound with this mike. No highs, no crispness, all nonusable recordings. Maybe I'll find another use for it. Very disappointing. And I sent an email to AT for some advice, no response.

Good Acoustic/Male Vocal Mic

By REC

from Harrisburg, PA

I used this extensively for a year and found I liked it better than an AKG that was twice the price. I liked it so much I bought one for myself. Great for Acoustic Guitar and Male Vocals, but more importantly its a great value.

Great general mic.

By mewzishun-MiO39

from Portland, Or

This was my first side address condenser. Since then I've bought many other condenser mics (including another one of these), and these still has a valuable place in my locker. I've used them on acoustics, amps, vocals, and percussion. They're so versatile. My favorite use thus far believe it or not is drum overheads. This is an entry level mic and it kicks the crap out of anything in it's price range. If you're looking for a lower end condenser, this one is for you. It's a great mic to build your collection upon.

A must have

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

I bought this mic and it has instantly taken my recordings to the next level. I have used it to record vocals, accoustic guitar, and to mic a guitar cab. This mic is quality. If you are recording and do not have a condenser get one, and make sure it is this one.

This is without the a doubt the best condenser in its price range. terrific sound quality. These are excellent on acoustic guitars when used in conjunction with a good directional (ie Shure SM81).

the AT-3035 is the best bang for your buck if you're an up and coming musician. you get studio quality for a very affordable price. after only 2 days of owning it, i already mastered the features and controls. I suggest this mic to anyone.

Very good mic, for the price.

By Yesitsdrew5310

from Tigard, OR

This is one of the best mics, for the price. I compared it to an AKG C3000 from my church, and the AT3035 sounds alot clearer and it's quieter than the AKG (and it's much less!). I have used it both recording and live. Recording, I used it for bass drum, drum overhead, a marching snare, vocals, guitar cabs, and acoustic guitar. In all of the cases it produced a true sound. I used it live for a childrens choir, and miking my guitar amp, the feedback rejection is amazing, and all of the voices in the choir came through. The -10 dB switch is nice to have when recording loud stuff, like drums or guitars. I record my band live sometimes in the same room, I mic my guitar cab with it, and when i'm not playing and the drums are going away at it, you can barely hear them through my mic. You set up the mic in a vocal booth and it just sits quietly for someone to start singing, one of the quietest mics i have used in my studio. I strongly suggest this mic, I'm tryin to get another one or two.

The mic don't sound right

By Zeke-7SLyl

from Georgia

I gave money for this mic and it sounds like some one has boosted the mids and cut the lows. It will be a long time before i buy anything with Audio-Technica on it.

A waste of time and money

By Micheal

from Atlanta Georgia

See all my reviews

This mic has absolutely no place in any studio above that of a high schoolers garage band. I used this mic to record both male and female vocals and that was a mistake! I spent more time correcting and re-recording vocals than anything else on the album. I only gave this mic a 4 on value, because it is cheap. BIT OF ADVICE. If you are determined to have this mic, DO NOT pay retail price. Too many engineers [myself included] would rather give the thing away, rather than look at it! I overheard a customer at the music store trying to sell his back to the store. The sales rep told the customer they would not even consider it! Don't waste your time. If you are serious about your music, don't buy this mic.

AT 3035 is the best entry level condenser, period

By Jim Smith Sr.-HfGOT

from Gloucester, Virginia

See all my reviews

I can't say enough about this microphone. It is absolutely the best condenser in this price range. It is well designed, well made, and I've used the 3035 to record just about every acoustic and amplified instrument made with great results. This mic. works well for vocals also...almost no coloration.

A dope mic

By Dr.Cause of L.S.D

from PA

See all my reviews

I was using a Behringer B1 condenser before I got this one with a yamaha mg 12/4 mixer... but the Audio Technica i recently got is much crisper. Only thing is the shockmount is a lot cheaper compared to the one the behnringer came with. But the mic is really nice and clear.

Great starter

By Marcus-zf27Z

from Canton, SD

See all my reviews

This is a great mic for the beginning home studio. I use it for vocals, some guitar cabs, and a room mic. The shockmount sucks though. I need to get a different one soon. It hold it nicely and everything but it has no give so it doesn't really absorb anything. This mic is a great value and is just right for a beginner.

AT3035 -- Good Stuff

By Stan-KN4ZZ

from Anywhere U.S.A.

See all my reviews

Blows most good dynamic mics completely away. I've only owned this mic about a month and my vocal & acoustic guitar tracks no longer need EQ adjustments. You are basically recording almost exactly what you are hearing; which quanifies a good mic.

Mic is dope - I just need to get a new mixer and soundcard to find out the full effect of it.
