  • Overview


    Designed for sax, toms, brass and percussion, the PRO 35 excels in high-SPL applications and is ideal for active stage performances. Its extended frequency response captures subtle nuances of the performance. The included UniMount® clip permits accurate positioning and provides shock resistance while protecting the element. The microphone’s cardioid polar pattern reduces pickup of sounds from the sides and rear, improving isolation of the desired sound source.

      Comments about Audio-Technica PRO 35 Cardioid Condenser Clip-on Instrument Microphone:

      I have used this for years and overall I love it. However, the jack is so big in comparison to the wire that the wire inside the insulation breaks often right near the jack. I have had to have it fixed fairly often by clipping the wire a little shorter each time. Suggestions? Install a clip on the jack so it can be clipped to pants or a back pocket or something - instead of just hanging onto the floor or bunched up in a pocket. The wires break very easily.

        I have used the PRO35 for five years now. I've played with it in both large and small venue with great results.
        I have the hard wired and the cordless. Both sound great. Sound is a little thin on the palm keys on my Soprano. I highly recommend this mic.

              • Staff Reviewer

                A:

                You may use an external phantom power supply such as the AT8801. You may also use the AT8531 power module instead of the AT8538 power module. This would allow you to use a battery in the power module to provide the proper power to the microphone.

                Yes, you may use the AT8539 power module to properly adapt the PRO35cW (with 4 pin HRS connector) to a PRO35 (with a standard XLR connection.)

                A:

                Thank you for your inquiry. There are two versions of this mic. The Pro 35 is a wired version with an XLR connector and the Pro 35cW is a version to be used with an Audio-Technica wireless system. Since there are many options I suggest that you contact our Audio Solutions team at 330-686-2600 ext 5000 and discuss your needs.

                A:

                The Pro 35 will work in this setup. The attached cable on the PRO 35 terminates into a TA3f (or mini XLR) connection. This then plugs into the included power module and converts that connection to an XLR, which you can then plug into your Tascam.

            • Q:

              Can one get an adaptor to a standard guitar jack?

              the present microphone hookup works good but I have a pre-amp I use with fiddle -- a Fishman Pro-Eq Platinu -- and the only input for the fishman is a standard larger guitar jack. Wondered if the connector on the mic, which also seems to have a small 3-pin connector also, could be adapted somehow.
              thanks,
