          This is a step up from the AT2020 ... comes with a shockmount (that you have to use, since its the only mic mount that is delivered with it...no threads), a rolloff switch and a 10db pad. The shockmount is snug enough to allow many positions for the side address mic and the LC capsule is very good for the bargain price.

            I'm a rapper and producer from Malaysia.
            Previously I was using the M-Audio Nova condenser mic. I wouldn't say that It was bad but I wasn't satisfied with the quality I got from it. So when i decided to change to another mic, I came across the AT2035 and purchased it. I must say I was more than amazed! Such quality and clarity! If you're really familiar with EQ's and compression, there's no doubt that you can get the sound want from the AT2035. I'm more than satisfied! Amazing mic! Amazing price!

            I'll do another review post soon with link to the video of my song recorded through AT2035.

            Till then, great job Audio-Technica! Wonderful product!

              I have used many studio mics over the years and never come across a mic that costs so little and sounds so great! I have A-B'd it against my TLM-103 and much prefer the sound of the AT-2035 to the Neumann. Considering I purchased three of them for less than a third the cost of one TLM-103, I am thoroughly satisfied!!!

              You won't find a better deal.

                Comments about Audio-Technica AT2035 Cardioid Condenser Microphone:

                About a year ago, while researching equipment for setting up my first small, home-recording studio, I settled on the AT2035, and this was simply because it provided the virtual flat, truly accurate response I was hoping to record, especially when attempting to capture the wonderful sound of my 1938 Gibson L00.

                Since I purchased two (for stereo recording), and since I've just now started using them, I've never been more satisfied with the professional quality of their construction as well as in their ease of use, especially when I add any other instrument (including voice# to the mix.

                If anyone was trying to do the same as me #especially with a limited budget), I know they would be fully content with the performance of the AT2035 - they are worth every penny.

                    Thank you for your inquiry. We cannot describe how to tell if a product is counterfeit or legitimate. There are some very good counterfeits and some very poor ones. We suggest that customers purchase only from authorized Audio-Technica dealers. Avoid dealers that ship from outside of the US and also avoid prices that too good to be true. There are no certificates.

                • Q:

                  Why doesn't the sound come up even when I use a midi pre-amp?

                  I just got the AT2035 microphone and was going to test it out but for some reason my computer does not register any sound coming through the microphone. I am using a Lexicon Alpha pre-amp and I just tested another microphone that I own by Shure and that microphone worked completely fine. Is there a certain mic cable that only works with this type of microphone? I have the standard cable that plugs in fine but nothing is coming out. Any other troubleshooting ideas are greatly appreciated.

                  • A:

                    Thank you for your inquiry. In looking at your interface, I do not believe it provides phantom power. The AT2035 is a condenser microphone and requires phantom power. I assume the other mic you tried is a dynamic microphone, which does not need phantom power.
