A Quality Condenser for Studio or Stage!

Audio-Technica's Pro 37 is a small-diaphragm cardioid condenser microphone that excels in a variety of studio and live situations. Its wide frequency response and high SPL capacity make it ideal for miking guitars or overhead drums as well as vocal performances.

Audio-Technica Pro 37 at a Glance:
  • Versatile professional mic for studio or live sound
  • Wide frequency response and dynamic range, plus high SPL capacity
  • Operates on 11 - 52 volts phantom power for compatibility with inexpensive mixers

Versatile professional mic for studio or live sound
The Pro 37 offers excellent performance and value in a condenser mic. It gives you great reproduction of acoustic guitars - both in the studio and onstage - as well as pro-quality pickup in overhead drums situations or on acoustic pianos. Plus, the Pro 37 functions well as a vocal mic, both for solo performance and recording choirs.

Wide frequency response and dynamic range, plus high SPL capacity
With a frequency response of 30Hz-15kHz, the Pro 37 can capture extended low frequencies as well as airy highs from any source you use it on. A low-mass condenser element provides superb transient response for clean, tight lows. Ins maximum input SPL of 141dB means the Pro 37 can stand up to close miking vocals or even amplified instruments, while its 112dB dynamic range gives you plenty of room for dynamically diverse performances.

Operates on 11 - 52 volts phantom power for compatibility with inexpensive mixers
Many inexpensive mixers offer inconsistent phantom power output. The Pro 37 doesn't care! It can operate on phantom power voltages ranging from 11 to 52 volts DC, so you can use it with confidence even on an unfamiliar house mixer. The Pro 37 is also built for years of use, with a gold-plated XLR connector for corrosion-resistant contacts. Its low profile also makes the Pro 37 easy to place and inconspicuous onstage.

Audio-Technica Pro 37 Features:
  • Professional performance for studio recording and live sound reinforcement
  • Ideal for acoustic guitar, overheads, piano and group vocals
  • Low-mass element for superb transient response
  • Excels in high-SPL applications
  • Low-profile design for optimal mic placement
  • Corrosion-resistant contacts from gold-plated XLRM-type connector
  • Rugged design and construction for reliable performance
  • Cardioid polar pattern reduces pickup of sounds from the sides and rear, improving isolation of desired sound source
  • Includes AT8405a stand clamp, 5/8"-27 to 3/8"-16 threaded adapter, windscreen and protective pouch
  • Requires +48V phantom power
The Audio-Technica Pro 37 is a pro mic with a value price!

Wonderful on Hats and Ride

Got a pair of these to add to my drum mic set, and all i can say is that this little guy is just incredible. Really love the sound i get out of my Hi-hats and my ride cymbal. I have also used this on acoustic guitar and got a very great sound. Would highly recommend a pair of these in every studio.

Long love affair

I bought one of these in 1992 and use it for acoustic guitar. I thought they must be long out of production, but was surprised to see them here for $130 and still going strong. 'Great mic. I love the thing! It takes a licking and keeps on kicking.

excellent piccolo snare mic

excellent for snare, as well as high hats too.I have also used it with remo roto toms, which are difficult to mic, and was very pleased with the result, incredible sound, note, so hot sometimes, I use a band pass software to edit out other stuff(or gate it)
Music background: digital recording since win 95 was out

A Great Value

This mic was a great addition to our mic closet at church. I originally purchased these to mic our choir. They worked great - much better than the vocal dynamic mics I had before. I've also used it to mic a flute This past week I used it as a lecturn mic for a special service and was blown away, especially by the gain before feedback. I'd love to try a pair the next time we use an acoustic piano in the room. It is a great building block as we continue to upgrade our system.

A "Swiss Army" microphone

I've used this mic for guitars (great), fiddle (also great) and vocals (very, very good). Two of them, in an X-Y configuration, are my absolute favorite "single-mic" setup -- beats the h*** out of large-cap condensers for this rather specialized use.

Jon Gillespie

I LOVE the Po 37! For a smooth, even, and accurate sound on a very reasonable budget, these are my go-to mics for cymbals... I especially love the "ping" that it captures on ride cymbals! Every studio that records acoustic drums should keep a handful of these in their mic closet!

Adam Chesi

These little guys are amazing! Great on kit overheads, high-hat, acoustic guitar, and even the right vocalist. For the price, you won't find anything better than the Audio-Technica Pro 37!

When I first got my Audio Technica Pro37 my first thought was, "How is something this small supposed to be so useful?!" I had read review after review of these, from Steve Albini claiming these were among the best mics you could get in the sub-$200 range, to my professor's glowing endorsement, but none of them quite prepared me for exactly how tiny these mics are. I mean, these things are small, even for a pencil condenser. Of course, the first thing I did was try them out. First thing I applied this to in a real world setting was an orchestral recording. I used it as a spot mic on classical harp and found that it was perfectly present upon the setting. Just enough highs to not be overly harsh, while maintaining the clarity required for a harp. After this, I went from one source to the next, trying to find something that was poorly represented through these. Using it on snare drum gave a great sound, until the drummer started playing too loud and it started to distort. After that, I tried them as overheads and as a high-hat mic, where it excelled at both, and even has its place alongside a dark ribbon on guitar cabs. The next thing that I had to do was try them on a source that is a little less conventional for a small diaphragm condenser, the female voice. After hearing it on a classically trained vocalist, I was floored. These little things surpassed all my expectations for any small diaphragm condenser, especially at the price point. These mics are wonderful little workhorses that can be applicable in nearly every situation. From live orchestral, to rock band studio, these guys will capture it all.
