I've owned three "mid-range" large diaphram condensers: AT3035, Rode NT1A and AKG C3000B. I've liked all of these mics and used them often. Once I purchased the AT3035, I reached for the Rode and AKG less and less often. The AT3035 sounds great and is less expensive that the abovementioned mic.

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!

Great mic!

By davetastic

from Los Angeles

Comments about Audio-Technica AT3035 Cardioid Condenser Microphone:

For the price, I think this is a fantastic microphone. It's very versatile. I purchased it to use primarily for vocals, but I've found that it works great to mic guitar cabinets as well. The 10db pad is especially helpful in this area. Some of these reviews state that it's not good for recording acoustic guitar. I think that depends a lot on mic placement. I found it works great when you stereo-mic the acoustic. I've had pretty good results when I record an acoustic using the AT3035 and an SM57. It works pretty well as a drum overhead as well. Of course this mic won't sound as well as some of the mics that cost $1000+, but I think in the $200-500 range, it outdoes it's competitors.

Good mic if your a good tracking engineer

By Tha Govna

from Jacksonville, FL

Comments about Audio-Technica AT3035 Cardioid Condenser Microphone:

Great microphone for the price being asked. As long as you pay attention to your recording environment, mic placement, and the talent's recording technique, then this mic won't do you wrong. Coupled with at least a decent mic pre, and some good software or hardware signal processors, you can get a really great full sound out of this mic with relatively little effort.I use it for vocals (have had it for almost a year now) and I've never been dissatisfied with any of the recordings.It only comes with a roll-off switch and pad (expected cause of it's price range) but the shock mount is pretty sturdy. It holds the mic pretty snug and I've never feared it would slip out. I would've given the feature section a 2.5 for average features, but the shock mount bumps that to 3.5. I gave it a 5 in quality, because it's the best in it's class so to speak, and a 5 for value, because... Well, it's low price!

Great Mic

By Ken Smash

from PDX, Oregon

Comments about Audio-Technica AT3035 Cardioid Condenser Microphone:

So far I've used this mic on guitar and bass cabs, vocals, and acoustic guitars. It excels at all of these for the price. Crystal clear on the guitar cab, even sound on the full range of the bass, silky smooth on vocals, and clean and full bodied on the acoustic guitar. The one drawback to this mic is that it is downright terrible for brass and woodwind instruments. But for everything else listed above, you will be very pleased with what you get for how little you paid.

Definitly a great mic for a home studio.

By Scaner for TuneKillaz Productionz

from Ruff Groundz, New Jerz

Comments about Audio-Technica AT3035 Cardioid Condenser Microphone:

I've had this mic for about almost a year and I must say, it sounds real good!...I had the AT4045 which unfortunely I sold it but, as far as having a mic in your home studio, I would choose the AT3035 cause it balances the sound and quality much better especially when using "pro tools le 6.9" and my mic preamp...and the price, well what can I say...good money for my investment!....If you're looking to not spend much but, yet purcahse a quality mic...I would advise you to get the AT3035

AT3035 -- Good Stuff

By Stan-KN4ZZ

from Texas

Comments about Audio-Technica AT3035 Cardioid Condenser Microphone:

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.

Great general mic.

By mewzishun-MiO39

from Portland, Or

Comments about Audio-Technica AT3035 Cardioid Condenser Microphone:

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.

Good for Vocals and Guitars

By WastedTheLight

from Marquette, MI

Comments about Audio-Technica AT3035 Cardioid Condenser Microphone:

This is my fav mic we have in our studio on campus. We started recording my Mesa half stack with a SM57 and this just to see what we liked better. The AT3035 blew the SM57 out of the water. the quality was so good, Ended up using it for vocals and couldn't be happier. It's great for the price. Going to buy it in the upcoming weeks!

For the price

By Alex-UhLVh

from Dallas TX

Comments about Audio-Technica AT3035 Cardioid Condenser Microphone:

This mic is a great mic for the price. I have extensively use high end mic's like the U47, U67, U86, TLM 193, TLM 103, and various other high end mic's. This mic does not rival against those obviously, however for the price, it cannot be beat. A great mic will allow you to probably hear the weakest points in your whole setup, so be careful. It will bring out your flaws in mixing as this mic is somewhat accurate (more than cheap mics). Check your preamps, check your monitoring system, if your having trouble translating using this mic, there's something else in your setup that's wrong.

Who says quality has to cost

By Verz

from Wichita KS

Comments about Audio-Technica AT3035 Cardioid Condenser Microphone:

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.
