Comments about Audio-Technica ATM350 Cardioid Condenser Clip-On Microphone:
Use these mics with a 10 instrument dance/swing big band indoor and outdoor for 8 shows now. On sax from soprano to baritone, they are great solutions. As the previous review said, no surrounding noise or wind is picked up. Also worked for me on trombone, when he uses a mute it is smaller than the bell and the mic mounts on the left away from the right hand applying the mute. Both trumpets present a problem as they can bash the mic or knock it off when they apply mutes that nearly span the whole bell. Guess that's the risk in swing or dixieland bands. Maybe I can train them to take off the mic before they pick up the mute. After the show, mics are removed and clipped to 2' tall straight pin stands I made from paper towel holders bases, so they don't just drop mics on the floor. My favorite AT mic.
Comments about Audio-Technica ATM350 Cardioid Condenser Clip-On Microphone:
Purchased for use on trumpets used in contemprary worship services. Player is normally positioned in fairly near proximity to semi-enclosed drum kit as well as sub-woofers. Virtually no pickup of surrounding sound as very little gain is required for reinforcement of the horns. Trumpet player is also able to switch horns quickly transferring the mic from one instrument to another with no handling noise.
Have only used the violin attchment a couple of times but the results have been excellent. It's a bit of a struggle inserting the mic element into the velcro attachment but once in place it is very secure.
Beware however as the first time it was used with a violin our sound tech was not aware that the violinist was only playing during the prelude to a special service. Anticipating that he would remain on stage for the opening song, the mic was left open as the violinist set his instrument down and began removing the velcro from the violin. Needless to say that sound was picked up quite well.
Despite that humourous incident and lesson learned the ATM350 has a permanent place in our microphone arsenal. The sound reproduction is very natural and unwanted noise is virtually non-existant.
These are the only 2 applications we have tries so far. If it weren't for the fact that it is so regularly in use I would definataely be trying it out in other applications. Perhaps it's time to pick up another.

A:The ATM350 Clip-on Microphone includes the UniMount (gooseneck mount) and a violin mount. The violin mount is a velcro strap with a loop sewn into it to slide the microphone into. It typically goes around the strings between the bridge and the tailpiece. The strap should accomodate a flute. For a clarinet, you may have to add a bit more velcro material for it to be long enough to go around it.
Q:ATM 350 Wor ATM 350 connections
A:Either exchange the ATM350cW for the ATM350, or purchase the AT8539 Power Module which has the 4-pin type input connector.
Q:Why is this appropriate for an upright bass? Input has 80Hz high pass filter
A:On the power module, there is a switch that allows one to switch the response from flat to the 80Hz high-pass filter. Note that the low end responses starts at 40Hz.
Q:1. have just purchased ATM350 mic with AT8542 rpm What does recessed white switch in AT8542 do ? 2. using an old Ross PC7250 mixer with no apparent ph
A:Thank you for your inquiry. The switch is the low frequency roll off switch. When set to the straight line it is passing all frequencies. When set to the bent line frequencies below 80 Hz are rolled off. The microphone requires at least 11 v of phantom power. If you need an external supply you can use our AT8801.
A:I don't know if they have responded, but I mic a clarinet for a swing - big band player and found location must be totally different. The clarinet doesn't make its primary sound from the bell. It is primarily the reed and the body/body holes. 'Bell only' seems to just make woof-hoof sound in my headphones. Try your flute with the atm350 clipped to a fixed stand facing the end at 1" or 2" and listening on headphones that cut out the room sound so you just hear the mic. Or have someone you trust do the headphone listening job. I bet the end of the flute is worse that just the bell on the clarinet. Then move the instrument around the mic and find where it sounds the best. I suspect it will be very close to the blow hole. I don't know the terminology of flutes, what is above the blowhole? or below? so I'll call the short end 'above' the blowhole:
Q:Will the ATM350 perform equally well with different levels of phantom power?
A:The ATM350 (includes the AT8542 Power Module for wired use) will perform the same on any Phantom Power voltage from 11-52v. In other words, it will perform the same with 15v as it will with 48v. Again, the ATM350 comes with the AT8542 power module which is necessary for wired use, and will operate equally on 11-52v.
Q:Can it clip on a sound hole of a acoustic guitar?
A:Thank you for your inquiry. I do not think this a good option. First it could get in the way and secondly attaching anything to the top could alter the sound. One of our endorsed artists uses this mic by attaching a tongue depress to the side of the guitar just below the neck with gaff tape and then clips the mic on to it. I've tried this as well and it works very well.
Q:Using ATM350 for violin - feedback issues
A:Hi, FiddleNich. for a start try to cut the feedback from a specific frequency band, or all the low freq the violin doesn't produce. You can hook up a 31 band single channel Equilizer thru the channel insert plug if you have one on the PA mixer. Route 100% of your mic channel thru the effects-insert loop, not just part of it like you would with a reverb.) If your lucky it is another instruments sound coming from the monitor at 200 or 300 Hz that cause the feedback and EQ-ing that out solves the problem for a high-pitch instrument like a violin. Just start playing your violin low notes and gradually cut the low frequencies completely and see where you notice an effect on your sound. Stop there and see if you still have feedback with the full group playing. If none of that helps, get the feedback started and selectively cut EQ frequencies one at a time raising them back to 0/unity gain at each one. Do this until you find where the feedback frequency(s) is, see if you can live with your violin sound with the EQ set to cut there. (the more eq bands the finer this can selectively cut that particular frequency range, 31 bands is probably min for this purpose.) All that said, the feedback may change frequencies from room to room and from room temperature to temperature. I've set up in daytime temp, sound check was fine and show at night had feedback because the cooler air is thicker, or the room full of people makes it warmer and thinner.
A:Thank you for your inquiry. Feedback is not actually the fault of the microphone. Feedback occurs when the amplified sound from any loudspeaker reenters the sound system through a microphone and is amplified again and again causing a loop. To avoid or lessen the likelihood of feedback try some of these steps:
Q:lapel clip modification
A:To use an ATM350 with a dreadnought guitar, I know of one very popular performer that uses the ATM350 with the included gooseneck clip (AT8418) on acoustic guitar. He does this by taping a tongue depressor (or popsicle stick) to the front edge of the body of his guitar just below the neck with gaff tape. He then clips the mic with gooseneck mount on to this. This is the only option I know of for using an ATM350 on an acoustic guitar.
Q:Does the ATM 350 clip open wide enough to clip on a ukulele headstock? Thank you.
A:Thank you for your inquiry. The clip opens .38 ". I doubt that it would open wide enough to clip on to your headstock. I have seen various ways to attach this to instruments. For example, one popular, professional musician tapes a tongue depressor to the front of his guitar with duct tape and clips the microphone to that.
