    • Q:

      A

      Will the Audio-Technica AT8468 Violin Mount for Audio-Technica Lavalier Microphones work with the Audio Technica ATR3350 Lavalier Microphone

      • A:

        It can be made to work. The mic is a little loose in the middle loop (the smallest opening). You can either wrap it with a layer or two of cloth tape or immobilize the cable to make certain it will not slip out if the wire gets pulled.

    • Q:

      Violin Mount Movement

      What keeps the Velcro mount from moving on the violin's tailpiece if the violinist moves around a little bit?
      Asked on 2/16/2013 by Spencer from Florida

      • A:

        Thank you for your inquiry. The velcro "sticks" between all four stings making virtually impossible to slide up and down. It could slide from bridge to tail piece if the cable is tugged, so it is a good idea to secure the cable or let it ride over the shoulder to keep it from being tugged.

    • Q:

      Does this fit the PRO 35 mic? It looks identical to the ATM-350 mic, so wondering why it is not listed as compatible.

    • Q:

      Is there an optimal distance from the bridge to mount the mic using this velcro strap?
      Asked on 10/13/2012 by Capflame

      1 answer

      • A:

        Like your ears, microphones can sense distance. In terms of an "optimal distance", that is relative to your personal taste. My recommendation is to position the microphone in the place where you believe you are getting the best sound. "Move the microphone around, stop when it sounds good". Generally speaking, I would start at the furthest point from the bridge, and work my way in. Simple as it is, that's the best answer.

    • Q:

      Does the AT8468 violin mount attach to the violin with adhesive-backed tape?
      Asked on 1/24/2012 by johnB

      1 answer

      • A:

        Thank your for your inquiry. No, it does not use tape. Basicly, there are two pieces of velcro that are placed one above the strings and one below the strings between the bridge and the tail piece. There is a pocket on the upper piece that holds the microphone.
