Audio-Technica AT2035
This is a budget cardioid condenser mic, which basically is a nice way of saying it is cheap. However, it has some really nice features that you don't see on a lot of cheap condensers. It has a -10db pad and a high pass filter that are both activated by physical switches on the mic. I'd say this mic is best suited for the studio. It is really well built and seems quite tough, but like all condensers it is prone to feedback and picking up unwanted sounds. Those two aspects of the mic make it less than ideal for live use.

Another great thing is that it comes with a shock mount.


I really like this mic. It has great clarity. I've used it for recording acoustic guitar, bass amps, guitar amps, and vocals.

For acoustic it really captured the warmth and body of the guitar. It sounded great on its own, but I also tried blending it with an SM57 (placed at the 12th fret) and it sounded phenomenal. The SM57 really brought in some of the high end sparkle.

The -10db pad really comes in handy when recording loud guitars. Sounded great alone, and again, I also really liked it paired with an SM57. And the built in high pass filter makes it so you don't really need to eq your guitar tracks. Its really handy.

It also does great for vocals. I've used it extensively for recording my voice. Seems to stay very true to your actual vocal tone. Its also very sensitive.

I am a layman when it comes to studio, so I can't tell you which high end mics the AT2035 competes with. What I can tell you is that this is a clear, great sounding condenser that makes a great addition to any home studio.

A view in the previous notices


Bought today, I tested different microphones in different ranges (C214, C414, C 535, Rode NT1 ...) My goal is to find a micro home studio the versatile neutral as possible for this price range.
This mic is amazing for the price, I tested today on vocals and percussion (with roland quad capture card) and I am amazed by the realism small bump in the treble correct depending on the source.

Beautiful robustness to grip, vendors have told me that they never return to the material audiotechnica.
Excellent price / quality ratio, I think to go to step one must go beyond the € 500 (for my use anyway, after that is a matter of taste), so I care!

Micro condo, give t have the specs.


I used to record voice, drums (large sweet in the mouth, my drummer has hit the Bonham), classical guitar, acoustic, and even my big Marshall lights when I want to put too much drinking and having a sound.

It resists very well to heavy pressure, I think it has a pleasant sound, I have no ear phnomnale, but purists (relous, even), m ' have spoken well.

See feature in the other opinion.

I bought € 159 in "Microphone"

Comes with suspension kit and a proper leather. Unfortunately this kit can contain only the microphone or the suspension. (Hence my 9 / 10)

Note that this is the same capsule as the AT2020 with two more functions that are essential for me:
Pad-10dB of attenuation (see below)
A cut-down to compensate for the proximity effect (on some serious voice for example)
These 2 explain more my choice for this microphone rather than the AT2020 microphone as they make this much more versatile.


I use it for one month principally to record voiceover commentary for documentaries. (NB: I am a sound engineer for turning)
I use a pop filter <strong>Studio Projects SP-MPF</strong> screen sound Vicoustic Flexi Screen lite.
I use my mixer I Sounddevices 302 for filming as the preamplifier.
I record the voice quiet apartments or home (not short cab studio!) And this little config. gives me satisfaction.
The hiss level is very satisfactory, the tone of voice is respected and intelligibility is always good.
In short, the results are very good price in relation to the microphone, I even received the following comment by a director after mixing his film: "... I am very pleased with Monday's taken, the voice of Katherine Password well, technically, the catch is impeccable. The mixer was hard to believe we had done it in a basement with a tiny piece of foam, it just had to ask the voices and just rework !

On the other hand, I made a recording of an acoustic guitar and singing with my son guitarist.
Me at the very timbre of the instrument and voice found its place in the mix without any problem.
I also did a quick test mono overhead on a battery to test the resistance of the microphone at high pressures: With the-10db pad engaged, there was no problem and I hit hard! (Without the pad, I reached the limit, which is normal)
In short, if you are looking for a mic too expensive and versatile for lots of things, you can go there without fear.
