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.

AT Pro-37

By ksmandocat

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.

GREAT MIC

By DFarris

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

I've had this mic for a year and it has seen a lot of use both in live shows and in my home recording studio. It has the purest sound of any mic I have tried. I use it in a two mic system for my bluegrass band instead of the 10 vocal and instrument mics we had setup before and it works great. We get a much cleaner sound and no feed back problems thanks to a "Behringer shark DSP 110" feedback destroyer and phantom power unit. We run a lot of gain on this mic and it works well for instrument or vocal both live and in the studio. I plan to buy another one as a back up.

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

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.

Cant Beat it for the $$$

By kirilirik.com

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

I have two of these units, and they work great as either a single or a stereo pair. They sound great in my studio on steel string or classical acoustic guitars. I also use them to record live gigs. They are great in high SPL applications, and for quality stereo sampling purposes. They also do very well with blocking any off-axis sound, and have a very tight, focused polar pattern. This can make it a bit tricky when calibrating your angles for stereo miking; can leave a hole in the middle if you go too wide, and boost the middle if you go too narrow. Once you get used to them though, you'll find the sweet spots quickly. No bass roll off or attenuation pad, but for the price, you just cant beat it. I highly recommend this product.

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

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

What an improvement...

By Anonymous

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

I had been using a Peavey PVM480 condenser to mic a banjo and this mic is far superior. I am able to get much more volume without feedback and the sound is crystal clear. This mic was recommended to me by an experienced banjo player and I see why. There are better condenser mics, but they cost three times as much as the Pro 37. For the money, it's the best.

Great for close up instrument mic'ing

By Soundlight1202

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

These mics are great for acoustic guitar, dobro, mandolin, fiddle, saxophone, clarinet, etc. The windscreen is a must, as these mics are very sensitive at short distances; but the windscreen is very effective at sharply reducing unwanted noise. The small size lets you run out your booms stands all the way, and frees you from worrying about mic stands tipping over. These mics also work well for recording vocal or instrumental ensembles (but not for live use with ensembles.) The stand clip is very sturdy, and does not easily come unthreaded from a stand once it has been attached, so you don't have to worry about it trying to unscrew itself during a performance. My only caution would be to NOT hot-plug this microphone, because the noise caused by plugging/unplugging the mic cable from this microphone while it is being routed through the speakers is VERY loud. Make sure your mixer has Phantom Power before purchasing.

You can't go wrong with this mic

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

I just purchased two of these babies about a month ago. At the time, I had a need for decent condensers on a modest budget. Of course, I wanted the sm 81s but I did say modest budget. At any rate, I got my hands on these mics when they were on sale. I couldnt be more satisfied. This past Sunday the drummer in our childrens praise service forgot to turn off the snare when the Pastor started his message. We muted the drum isolation booth but for a minute I adored how this mic picked up the snare vibration. The cool thing is we flew this mic about 8 feet above on a overhead boom stand. I am very satisfied.
