Q:I own an f style mandolin. What is the best mount for this mic? And how would I attach it?
A:There are different ways people attach a microphone, such as the PRO35 or ATM350a to mandolin. I would recommend looking into the mounts for the ATM350a here:
Q:Can this be used on a cello?
A:Yes, and may be mounted in different places based on your preference.
Q:Does usage of the AT8468 Violin Mount dampen the natural resonance of the strings between the bridge and the tailpiece?
A:Is is connected to the strings and will make contact with the strings.
Q:Will the AT8468 work on an upright bass to mount a AT2021?
A:No it will not.
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:Will this item also work to attach the PRO35 to a viola?
A:Thank you for your inquiry. This should work fine in this application.
Q:Violin Mount Movement
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.
A:Thank you for your inquiry. Yes, this will work with the Pro 35.
Q:Is there an optimal distance from the bridge to mount the mic using this velcro strap?
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?
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.
