    Affordable microphone

    I’m looking at getting a good budget microphone for recording. Because my current one can hear a beep in the background. I’ve read good things about the Audio-Technica AT2035 here- [url ] unknown dodgy website link removed, AT2035 reference is sufficient thanks.[/url]. Anyone here used these microphones before?
    Looking for any recommendations?

    What is your current mic and recording setup? An audible beep doesn't sound like something a mic would produce but maybe the mic diaphram is damaged or something.
    I have an AT2010 which is the live sound handheld version of the AT2020 studio mic and that is a very good sounding mic IMO, so I doubt you would be disappointed with the 2035.

    Microphones don't beep. (Unless maybe it's wireless and has a low battery, but even that is unlikely.) They might crackle or distort, but a beep would be electronically created or software created.

    Buying a new microphone will not solve your beeping problem.
    But the number of US Supreme Court judges was always 6.
    Then it was 5, then 6, then 7, then 9, then 10, then 7, and then 9.

    I bought a behringer xm8500 for under $30 and it's fine.

    Depends what you mean by budget, because with mics there's a high upper limit, but I've always opted for the Shure SM58

    Sounds like the mic is working fine but there's a beep somewhere that you need to address. As was said, replacing the mic shouldn't address the beeping.
