Cheap but great!
22.11.2016
I am a musician and a producer and own a recording studio for almost 10 years already. I wanted to get a cheap condenser for everyday use in the studio - voiceovers, vocals, acoustic guitars and stuff like that.
I narrowed my options down to 3 microphones - AT2035, NT-1 and P220. I knew that they all are quite similar sounding and I just had to pick one. I picked this and have been very happy with my choice!
First of all - it is a solid microphone. The build quality is great, it is heavy, feels durable and looks professional. Soundwise I feel like this microphone gives me relatively flat representation of whatever I record with it. It doesn't have that boominess and uncontrolled bottom end that other cheap microphones do. Since I bought it I have had a chance to record some stuff with the Rode NT-1 too and I have to say - I feel like I made the right choice buying this. To me the bottom frequencies sound much better on the AT2035 so that the NT1 sounds a bit unnatural and glassy in comparison.
But let me tell you - whatever microphone you choose to buy - just buy it and don't look back. You can do wonders with any decent sounding microphone as long as you know what you are actually doing. In this price category every microphone I've tried sounds more or less similar and lets be honest - you can't expect this or any other 150$ microphone to sound like JZ Blackhole, Neumann u87 or stuff like that. Every microphone in this category will have its limitations and flaws that you have to learn to work around. Learn about microphone placement, position, recording techniques and you will get great results no matter what you use.

Worth the added cost compared with the already excellent AT 2020
Robert2532, 29.10.2015
Phantom-powered by my Digital Audio Interface, the AT 2035 delivers low-noise audio with only the tiniest of coloring. A switchable, high-pass filter and a low pad are included - which adds in some useful versatility. Even without kicking in the pad to add another 10dB capacity, the mic can handle a very high 148dB sound pressure level, while its signal-to-noise ratio is about 9% less than for the AT 2020.

The build is robust. It looks as if it could dent the floor rather than the other way round if I dropped it - but I am not going to try! There is no pop-shield included but, hey, what do you expect for the keen price I sourced it from Thomann for? The shock-mount included is reasonable enough quality and allows for some flexibility in positioning the mic.

Delivers clear vocal audio in my home studio, which is in a location prone to a good bit of unpredictable ambient noise intruding from the street and other houses. But with my trusty homemade audio shield (drapes) protecting it, the AT2035's side-address, cardiod characteristics meet the challenge of excluding sounds that I do not want. I read that this mic is OK for pro studios and live use as well, but have no experience of using it for these applications.

The AT 2035 is also proving good at conveying accurately the sound of an acoustic guitar or a guitar amp. I wrote 'tiniest of coloring' earlier. If anything, there is perhaps a little warmth added. I can live with that!

All in all, this beats the heck out of a lot of pricier mics and is worth paying a little more for than the AT 2020 given that the AT 2035 has a filter and pad and that improved signal-to-noise performance. I can see me buying more of these.
