    Best Uses

      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.

      Best Uses

        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.

        • Q:

          I've used the atm350 on many brass instruments. It's excellent. Is there anyway to make it wireless? I have non-AT wireless systems. Is there a ta3f to ta4f adapter? It seems like the only difference between the atm350 and atm350cw is the connector.
          Thanks!

          • A:

            I've used the ATM-35 and the ATM-350 very successfully for both cello miking and contrabass miking. You can certainly use the included Velcro mounting system with the 350 to mic either instrument for a great result. I went a slightly different route and also purchased the rubber mounts CC4099 and BC4099 from DPA. These work PERFECTLY with the ATM-350, with just a bit of electrical or gaff tape added to the cable just behind the element to increase the cable diameter for a tighter fit into the rubber mount. As one of the live engineers for a symphony, and speaking for the recording engineer as well, I've been VERY happy with the sound of the ATM-350 both on cello and contrabass with the mic placed just below the bridge using those mounts. And the musicians are very pleased at the minimal contact with their instruments and the ease of mounting/removal.

          In the FEATURES section of the ATM350 webpage, it states,
          "Interchangeable elements available for hypercardioid and omnidirectional polar patterns". Can you please give details on these optional capsules? I'm interested for grand piano, and I can't find any specifics for these elements, such as part number, price and specs. Thanks.

          • 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.
