The AT8035 is a fixed-charge condenser microphone with a line + gradient polar pattern. It is designed for video production, broadcast (ENG/EFP) audio acquisition, wildlife recording and high-quality sound reinforcement. The microphone's highly directional polar pattern provides a narrow acceptance angle along with crisp, intelligible audio reproduction desirable for long-distance sound pickup and is suited for both boom & handheld use. The output of the microphone is a 3-pin XLRM-type connector. A switch permits choice of flat response or low-frequency roll-off (via integral 80 Hz high-pass filter) to help control undesired ambient noise. The microphone is enclosed in a rugged housing. The microphone requires 11V to 52V phantom power or a 1.5V AA battery for operation. A battery need not be in place for phantom power operation.The included AT8405a stand clamp permits mounting on any microphone stand with 5/8"-27 threads. A windscreen, two o-rings, a battery and a protective carrying case are also included.

Did You Know....... Many top record producers, when recording vocals, will use a dynamic mic for up close vocals and a heavily compressed shotgun mic about five feet away. It's true! The dynamic mic not only captures part of the final sound, but is also useful for giving the artist something to focus on, keeping a fairly consistent position relative to the shotgun mic. Have a shotgun mic on hand for your next vocal could be the goldmine you've been seeking!
