  • 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.

      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:

            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,
            paul

            • A:

              You will need to provide the proper voltage to the PRO35 microphone with the AT8531 power module which can power the microphone via a AA battery.

              Depending on the specs of your Fuzz Pedal, you may need to adapt your MIC level signal to LINE level in the CP8201 Impedance Matching Transformer.

              Thank you for your inquiry. The microphone requires phantom power. If you speaker has an XLR, microphone level input, that provides phantom power it should work. Otherwise no.

          • Q:

            how do you use this mic?

            my father wanted me to look for a microphone so his saxophone sounds louder and clearer when he plays. I came across this microphone but have no idea how it works. It sounds like my father is only looking for a microphone piece that can amplify his saxophone sound, but don't you need an amplifier (or whatever it's called) for this microphone to connect to? I'm really new to this, and have no clue as to what equipment(s) I need to buy along with this microphone to fulfill what my father is trying to do. This is my father's words--'I need microphone that can connect to like a portable radio or PC speaker so my saxophone sounds better and clearer.'

            Please help?

            1 answer

            • A:

              The best way to do this may be to use a small instrument amplifier. The amplifier will need to have an XLR type MIC input on it. The AT8538 inline Power Module provided with the PRO 35 Clip-on Instrument Microphone uses a balanced 3 pin male XLR type output connector. The power module requires phantom power (12 to 48 volts DC is acceptable) to operate. Phantom power is is a DC voltage provided by some amplifiers on the mating 3 pin female XLR type microphone input connector. Some amplifiers provide phantom power. Some do not. Make certain that whatever you choose to connect the microphone to provides phantom power OR be prepared to add an inline phantom power supply (such as our model AT8801 48 volt Single-channel Phantom Power Supply) between the power module and the XLR MIC input on an amplifier that does not provide phantom power.

            Mandolin Application

              For use with a Mandolin that features an f hole, the PRO35 will work, but the ATM350 would be a better choice.

            1 answer

              PLEASE REVIEW THE BELOW INFORMATION BOTH CAREFULLY AND THOROUGHLY:

              The PRO35 wired clip-on instrument microphone comes with the AT8538 Power Module.

              The AT8538 does not (in-and-of-itself) supply power to the microphone; rather, if any (brand-new) microphone comes with a power module (including the PRO35), then the power module is absolutely a necessary component for the following reasons:

              • First, it converts the standard 11 – 52 VDC Phantom Power into a significantly smaller DC bias voltage, which is used to power the FET impedance matching circuit inside the microphone.
              • Some also provide a low frequency roll-off.
              • Battery power if Phantom Power is not available (NOT the case for the AT8538, since it does not accept a battery)
              • They also convert the signal to the proper impedance, and balance the output.

              Given the above information, if you plan to use the PRO35 in a wired application and the power module is missing, then you would need to purchase the AT8538. Going XLR direct and bypassing the power module will void the warranty and result in permanent damage to the microphone.

              Phantom Power, which is 11 – 52v, and is distributed by a mixer or phantom power supply over a standard XLR – XLR cable, is still a requirement to use the PRO35 provided you are using the microphone with its AT8538 Power Module.

              Since the Power Module has an XLR-M output, you could use any standard XLR - XLR microphone cable with a copper-braided shield. Max length could be approximately 300' - 1,000'.

              The PRO35 is a wired microphone, and will not work with any wireless system. The wireless version of the PRO35 for current Audio-Technica Wireless systems (excluding the PRO88w and ATR288w) is the PRO35cW.
