blackle's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

AKG C 535 EB
Electret cardioid microphone on scene ..


Used for vocals, brass and woodwinds, strings .. it remains a standard microphone! probably the mic that I use the most on stage and in the studio, with a very good versatility, he suffers only one default .. the irresistible urge to buy more ..

le_kornichon's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" One of my favorites!"

AKG C 535 EB
This is an electret condenser microphone, supplied with 48V Phantom. Fairly small membrane suspended and well protected by a fairly effective windscreen against wind noise and plosives (but not perfect). Low-cut two position attenuator.


This mic is full of qualities! It is perfect to get a clear and defined sound.
Much has already been said about this microphone, so I will not add too much, but I advise you to try on TOMS: it is simply the best micro toms I've ever seen all ranges combined price! And when to put one microphone between two toms, I can not imagine anything more to the latter.

There is almost no off-axis détimbre: sources from the sides and rear are attenuated but not distorted, then the repisse is clean and it changes a lot of things to the mix!

I stopped recording guitar amps with it. It is infinitely better than a SM57 but is not used in the same way: I have the right place in the axis of the speaker but between 40cm and 80cm apart. Thus the micro takes out the whole sound of the speaker, not just the few square inches of membrane that are just glued to the 57 to the gate of the amp. And it works great! Whereas with my other mics, it not and I preferred the old 57.

Tested on drums, it was beautiful! On vocals, it can do but live in the studio I will avoid at least look for a typed his FM radio on the speaking voice for example.

blancjs's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Excelent on female voices"

AKG C 535 EB
Vocal mic mainly although I suppose that ca pass on instruments or other types flute wind instruments with a windscreen.


I used it for my 1 year singer live mainly.
Rapprt excelent value for female voices. Much clearer and detailed an old SM58, much cleaner!

-Livingroom-'s review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" static foolproof!"

AKG C 535 EB
It is a condenser mic, I think it excels on various percussion, OH it also works very well (for the price I mean!) And some guitars, remote if you want to capture the reverb of a room. The voice if it may be appropriate (for the preproduction) brass also make good ... And it is very sturdy! This makes an excellent point for ztatique.


I know for a long time and use it for my personal use for one year. I had and have other static in their hands, and this one serves me absolutely still on percussion and often on other things. It may lack bass, which due to its small membrane, but this detail is not a problem for me. I would do this choice, double!
