      I do Podcast interviews as well as Screen Cast. I run into a Tascam DR-40 digital recorder. Since I can inset a battery into the Pro 70, I never use the phantom power on the Tascam. The bass cut switch is great and this mic cuts my post production by 50%. I own for of these mics and if they were stolen from me, I would be on-line in a heart beat, buying four more!

          used it on my gypsy guitar for 2 years... and just recently installed the AT8418 uniMount instead of the included 'guitar clip'.

          What a difference! highly recommended.. with this mount.

          Nice instrument mic for cello

              Comments about Audio-Technica PRO 70 Cardioid Condenser Lavalier / Instrument Microphone:

              Our Cello/Classical guitar duo was our main bread and butter for some years. We've done many, many wedding ceremonies, fancy dinner parties etc as professional musicians. I've tried every piezo ceramic cello pickup made before switching my focus to mics. I decided to try the pro70 because it's billed as an instrument mic with a sound-hole clip. I built a make-shift mount to clip the mic in a good spot on the cello, and after some experimenting concluded that we had achieved adequate sound quality on the cello at long last. The pro70 brings a nice, warm, full signal into the mixing board with no unpleasant frequencies I've ever felt a need to EQ out of the mix.
              We've been gigging regularly with this mic for 6 or 7 years and never had a malfunction (other than low battery). We've been pretty careful with it, but it's still remarkably durable and reliable. I came to this site looking to buy 3 more so I can mic the string quartet.
              On a side note, I have tried to clip it on for vocals in a pinch and found it a really lousy setup for singing.

                  I am not to happy with this AT-pro 70. I use this in my studio to record interviews via Zoom h4n. After the Recording is finished and imported to FCP(Final Cut Pro) for a play back the sound of the person speaking in very low. The mac volume is ste to 100%. In post I can fix that but I dont get the quality I need. So I will give it a try to a different mic.

                      I am a legal videographer and have used these while filming depostions for over 2 years and am VERY pleased. These are extremely durable, on a weekly basis someone drops one and none have ever broke. And I very rarely experience any interference while using these.

                          I've purchase 3 for my company and based on my experience with the mics I purchased 8 for the school I teach film at. Great tool for interviews and some on the go quick voice overs. I recommend the Pro 70 to anyone.

                              Im using this Audio Technica PRO 70 Condenser mic as part of a dual source system its positioned inside my archtop jazz guitar. The two signals (pickup + mic) are mixed together. The mic has a power pack is about the size of a Blackberry phone, therefore, no phantom power is required. I dont have any feedback problems because my amp is positioned about 7 feet away on my left. I dont use a floor monitor. Im currently using heavy EQ filtering in order to get the right blend of highs and lows between the pickup and mic. The Pro 70 brings out the natural acoustic qualities of my guitar that gives it a wonderful clear, clean, bright voice even when the strings are old and dull! I just ordered a second Pro 70 mic that will be used on another guitar. Feedback can be a major issue with any mic, therefore, many guitarists, like John Jorgenson, will mount their Pro 70 mic inside the instrument (see John Jorgensons Discussion Forum, 2007.) With this type of arrangement you will really need some kind of EQ filtering. (I actually have two EQs daisy-chained together.) Also, you may experience some unwanted finger squeak. The EQ takes cleans up some of this and Ive learned to improve my fingering technique with more purposeful movements to minimize unwanted fingersqueek noise,. I suggest using some kind of preamp, like a small mixer, for example, with this mic. And remember, the Pro 70 requires an XLR input. The AA battery seems to last forever the last time I went to changed it, it still had a full charge!
