  • 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.

            the best sound that can be picked from any brass instrument is using an pro35 or atm350 clip on microphones. always clean with excellent transients, excelent positioning, excellent feedback resistance, fully naturally, uncoloured sound, precise!!! always the best! my musicians on stage once hear your instruments with these mics, they fall in love! five stars!!!

            • Q:

              I'm thinking of using this mic on a banjo in conjunction w/ a Rare Earth Fishman pickup inside the banjo. Can the pro35 be hardwired into my stereo 1/4 " jack?? It will be powered via the Rane AP 13 phantom power.

                A:

                Yes and no. Yes, you may use the PRO35 with your setup but may not be hardwired to a 1/4" jack for a few reasons.

                #1 - being a condenser, the micorphone requires phantom power which only travels via XLR.

                #2 - most often 1/4" inputs are LINE level inputs and not MIC level. Plugging a mic into a LINE level input will result in low volume if any.

                #3 - the PRO35's included power module must not be bypassed.

                You may connect the PRO35 to your banjo and with the included power module, plug into your phantom power supply, then out of that into a 1/4" LINE level input via the CP8201 Impedance Matching transformer.

                Thank you for your inquiry. The Pro35R was a much older version. I'm not sure of the spec differences.

            • Q:

              I've bought 6 of these mics several years ago, and now I'm wondering if it's possible to replace the plugs on them so that I can use it with a wireless system? They currently have the standard XLR (male) plug, to be use as a "wired" mic. It seems like there is a complex circuitry to the end of the cable. Any help you can give is much appreciated. Thanks!
