        Yes, the AT8458 will fit the AT2020USB+ microphone but may obstruct the front controls and headphone jack.

        A:

        While not specifically designed for the AT2020USB+, rather the AT2020, it will fit the mic. However, this would limit your access to controls on the microphone body when hooked into the shock mount.

        A:

        Yes, the body of the microphone will fit in the AT8458 Shock Mount. The headphone and controls on the microphone will be covered though.

    • Q:

      Where do I find Audio-Technica Case Style R7

      I have the AT8458 shock mount and AT2020 microphone, and both mention case style R7. What does that mean, and where can I buy this case?
      Asked on 7/20/2015 by Charlie8 from Chicago, IL, USA

      1 answer

      • A:

        Case style relates to certain aspects of the microphones case (or housing). Things like the diameter and length of the case, whether it is is an end-address or a side-address type, the type of mount required (does it take a clip, a snap-in or slip-in type stand clamp, threaded swivel mount, shock-mount etc.) The case style of the AT2020 Microphone is R7. Any of our accessories such as windscreens, stand clamps and shock mounts whose description says "fits Audio-Technica case style R7" will be compatible with it.

    • Q:

      How do I put my microphone into this shock mount?

      I am not sure if I am putting my AT2035 microphone into this shock mount correctly. The box did not come with instructions. Am I supposed to hear a click when it is in properly? What is the proper way to put the mic into the shock mount?
      Asked on 3/18/2014 by Chek from Bronx, NY, USA

      1 answer

      • A:

        Slide the AT2035 directly into the top of the AT8458 shock mount. It should side into place, and when it is secured, then it is installed properly. As the microphone is inserted, the groove in the microphone will grab on to the bands, and thus secure the mic to the mount.

    • Q:

      Does this function on it's own

      Can I just purchase this and clamp it to my desk or is it just the arm and the mount for the mic?

      Specifically, do I just need this and my USB AT2020 or do I need additional peripherals?

      • A:

        Thank you for your inquiry. This is just a shock mount. This must be connected to a microphone stand.

    • Q:

      Does it work with stand?

      I have a stand made by a different company. Can this attach to any stand?

      • A:

        Thank you for your inquiry. As long as the stand has a standard 5/8 27 thread it should work.
