The Audio-Technica Pro 37 is a small diaphragm condenser microphone that has a cardioid polar pick up pattern. It has a standard XLR connection and is probably best suited for recording, but can be used for live shows as well. I only have experience with this microphone as a studio mic, do this review will be focused on the recording applications of the Pro 37.
I've used the Audio-Technica Pro 37 a number of a times in a friends' home studio and have found it to be a great microphone for the price. While it isn't my favorite sounding small diaphragm condenser microphone on the market, it is a great option for a home studio owner because of this great price tag. I'm normally not a huge fan of the mics made by Audio-Technica as I find that they are cheaply made and often don't sound all that great, but the Pro 37 is a different story. I'm not saying that I was overly impressed with the sound quality, it's just that the Pro 37 is one of the better sounding mics that I have tried made by Audio Technica. It is a good microphone for a variety of uses including as a drum overhead, on acoustic guitar, and other acoustic stringed instruments. It will be of use for pretty much anything that you would normally want to use a small diaphragm condenser mic, as this is a good microphone for picking up the mids and the high end of sound rather than the lower frequencies. I can't say at all that I would recommend this for a professional studio owner or engineer, as this is only suitable for home studio owners who are on a budget. If you want a cheap way to record drums and add some diversity to your mic collection, definitely look into getting a pair of the Pro 37 as it has a nice sound for those on a budget.

I only used once. For a demo, taking ambient battery in a small room. This is a good microphone that captures sound well. I used one on top of my kit (finally a little before, the mic was too small) and I had a very good sound, clear, defined and dynamic.
The weakness is that it is very sensitive and picks up every sound in the room. While recording, he caught the bass. But as the bass do not have a big sound, it allowed him to be boosted.
Very good mic, but very sensitive. Care must be taken to be isolated.
