Audio-Technica AT2035 Studio Microphone

An unbeatable value in a cardioid large-diaphragm condenser, the AT2035 is your go-to mic for recording vocals, guitar amps, and more. Includes shockmount.
With a modest price tag and the capability to reproduce stunning vocals -- from vital low notes to warm, inviting mid-tones to clean and clear high notes -- this mic is well-suited to record your latest hip-hop creation, indie rock sensation, or pop/folk ballad.

Considered by many audiophiles, professional sound engineers, and general microphone enthusiasts to be a souped-up version of the now-discontinued AT3035, the AT2035 incorporates its switchable 80 Hz high-pass filter and 10 dB pad with its large-diaphragm technology to easily handle high sound-pressure levels, lending a smooth, natural quality to your sound with no harsh edges.

"You'll think you paid hundreds for this mic!"
This one is a keeper! Would replace it in a heart beat!
Sound
Wow! That was the first word that came to mind after listening to this mic. I am a professional voice over artist, and I have recorded at some great studios with great mics like the vaunted Nuemann U87, Senny, 416 shotgun, AKG mics, etc., and I can safely say this one is in my top 3. I was ready to pull the trigger on an AT4033CL, however after reading that this one was very comparable and sounded as good as other mics costing upwards of $500, I bought the AT2035. I did not regret my decision. I paired it with a Presonous tube amp, and was blown away. Nice, crisp highs and mids, not muddy on the lows. Just colors my voice perfectly. If you want a sampling of what I have recorded, just visit www.voxmaxaudio.net. Thanks, Joseph Andrade
Features
Includes a -10 db switch as well a bass roll off switch. Also comes with a shock mount, and carrying pouch. Nice.
Ease of Use
Just plug it in to your pre amp and get fantastic sound.
Quality
This is a heavy, beautifully made mic. But then again all of Audio Technica's products are well made. Have not had a single problem with it.
Value
This is where the AT2035 really shines. For the price you are going to pay for this mic, you swear it sounds like a $500 mic. Tremendous value.

Have not needed it yet.
