Product Description

Supplied with Audio-Technica's versatile UniMount clip and violin mount, the low-profile ATM350 is an exceptional cardioid condenser microphone designed to clip to brass, reeds, piano, snare, toms, and violin. The microphone offers a crisp, clear, well-balanced response, even at high SPLs. It features an integral 80 Hz hi-pass filter and is also equipped with a in-line power module. Its cardioid polar pattern reduces pickup of sounds from the side and rear for effective protection against feedback.

Features:

- Low-profile design for minimum visibility
- Attaches to brass, reeds, piano, acoustic bass, snare, toms, and violin
- UniMount clip permits accurate positioning, provides shock resistance and protects element
- Unique violin mount permits unobtrusive placement of microphone between the instrument's bridge and tailpiece
- Crisp, clear, well-balanced response, even at high SPLs
- Cardioid polar pattern reduces pickup of sounds from the sides and rear, improving isolation of desired sound source
- Interchangeable elements available for hypercardioid and omnidirectional polar patterns
- Corrosion-resistant contacts from gold-plated XLRM-type connector
- Rugged, all-metal design and construction for years of trouble-free use

Artist Series Microphones

Audio-Technica's renowned Artist Series has been re-engineered from the ground up. They've packed the culmination of 40-plus years of research and design into the rebirth of these road-proven, reliable designs -- adding some spectacularly innovative microphones to the line, and upgrading classic models for a complete selection of vocal, instrument and drum mics.

This first-ever remake of the Artist Series was inspired by consultations with touring artists and sound engineers who rely on these microphones for rock-solid performance night after night. Audio-Technica's engineers turned their "what ifs" into "why nots": Why not create a dual-element kick drum mic that the working musician can afford? Or a pencil side-address condenser built for incredibly flexible placement options? What about adding a durable vocal condenser to the Artist Series family? And while they're at it, why not include a generous selection of real-world accessories that make these microphones easy to use on a clutter-free stage? A-T has made these and more dreams for this series a reality.

The sound is everything you'd expect from Audio-Technica. The vocal mics set industry standards for intelligibility, detailed reproduction and noise suppression. The instrument microphones feature a fast transient response and low distortion characteristics that faithfully reproduce the complex details of virtually every sound source. For the drums, Audio-Technica built on the legacy of its legendary AE2500, and introduced the ATM250DE, a dual-element kick-drum microphone that combines 2 perfectly positioned capsules in a single housing.

Whether you use wedges or in-ears, line-array or portable PA, the Artist Series will help you squeeze every ounce of performance out of your reinforcement system. Plus they're built tough. As the company that made studio condensers durable enough for stage use, Audio-Technica knows a thing or 2 about solid construction. The Artist Series is rugged to the core -- these all-metal microphones are engineered to perform flawlessly despite the inevitable bumps and bruises of life on the road.

These microphones are created to bring clear sound, rock-solid durability and aesthetic design to every stage where artists and audiences connect... from corner bars to Carnegie Hall. Meet the Artist Series.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (30 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Audio Technica ATM350 Condenser Mic "
Overall: An excellent mic for instruments at a reasonable price. I use it on a fiddle in a small ensemble playing at coffeehouses. I use the clip to attach it to my chinrest and point the mic downward toward the bridge by adjusting the gooseneck. The mic stays on securely and gives excellent sound reproduction in this position. I do not use the included violin attachment accessory; it would orient the mic incorrectly to catch the high-frequency sounds of the instrument.
Style of Music: I play primarily Scottish and Scottish-influenced fiddle.

"Good for casual live performances. Garbage for professional recording."
Sound: Good for live performance, terrible for recording. Violin Mount useless. Just purchased this mic anticipating it's multiple uses on different acoustic instruments. Being a multi-instrumentalist, sound engineer and composer, playing and recording over 20 different instruments in a less than sound proof studio, I thought I purchased the perfect mic. CON: It lacks the high end and sounds very muddy. Sounds almost as if there's a low pass filter on it. It starts to weaken at around 700hz. It doesn't record the overtones and harmonics of instruments. I played around with the placement of the mic on each instrument and each placement and instrument had similar problems with the frequencies. I currently own a AT2020 and AT2021 and even though it's less than half the price of the ATM350, the sound is superior to the ATM350. Even with the bassier instruments (ei. Cello) it didn't sound good since it was lacking the rich overtones of the instrument. Also the violin/viola/cello mount clips on well but is not the best mic placement. I found that if I used the regular clip and clipped it on the bridge with the microphone hovering straight above the finger board near the center, it sounded a bit better. Having the mic behind the bridge creates a harsh and brassy sound. PRO: It barely records environmental noise. The room noise sounds at least 12dB or 2x quieter than the AT2020. I put the tv on in the background while recording and it didn't pick it up while I was playing the instrument. It focuses on the sound and negates all other sounds. It can also handle high spf levels which is rare for a condenser mic. I can see how the mic would be a hit for live performers since it reduces the chances of feedback due to the focused diaphragm and suppresses outside noise from picking up. The best instruments for the mic: Harp Violin/viola if you don't use the violin mount Oboe if you clamp it on the right hand thumb rest sax The worst instruments for the mic: Bassoon, clarinet, flute, cello Feature: Good clamp Terrible violin mount. Wrong placement for mic Ease of Use: Can't always clip it on the bell of instruments. Violin mount is useless, the sound is horrible when placed behind the bridge. I had to tape it to different areas on my instruments to get the optimal sound Quality: Looks and feels very high quality. Too bad the sound isn't good. Value: Too expensive for a shorter/lighter pencil mic with a clip. The AT2021 sounds 100X better is only a fraction of the price. Manufacturer Support: N/A Overall: I gave it a 3 since it may work for live performers but not for professional recordings. It may sound good on a drumkit. I haven't tested it on drums.
Style of Music: Orchestral & experimental electornic
