    Anyone here had any experiences with this mic? Its one im thinking about purchasing...i will be recording through a digi 002 rack into ProTools

    I mostly record HipHop / Rap Music and I will also be recording a female singer and maybe a project with a group of female singers

    Thank You

    I have, and still use this mic....its a pretty good mic for the money. The pre's in your 002 should be suffient to get a good sound, and it will work good with the female voice on it. Rap vocals don't require to much, so i think you'll be straight with this mic

    I own one. Great mic for the money actually. I've posted on this site about how we compared it (with male vocals) with a $1,000 TLM 103 and couldn't tell the difference. I use it for recording stereo sound effects side by side with my TLM 103.

    It's one of my favorites. Most common uses are:

    1. Female vocals
    2. Some male vocals
    3. Electric guitar amps
    4. Tenor sax

    It's a great value, I should buy another one!

    Do you guys place it upside down or normal up without the boom....i like to place the mics upside down on the boom just wondering if its gonna be better placing it upside down or normal up without the boom...

    Depends on what I'm recording.......usually upside down on a boom for sax, rightside up on a boom for vocals, whatever gets it in the correct position. For vocals, doesn't really matter, can't see it having any effect on the end result.

    For vocals I always prefer AT mics upright. I don't know why, but it has always been easier to get the sound I'm looking for that way. For other things I've used it either way with equally good results. It really depends on the room. Sometimes upside down can help with ceiling reflections as the body of the mic gets in the way.

    Doh! I forgot you meant the 3035. It was generalising about the grille assemby on the 40 series, but of course yours is different.
