    I purchased this stand about 2 years ago for my High School AV Tech program that I teach. My stand has broken and I need some parts for this stand or at the most a new small stand. Please let me know the part numbers or information to repace this. Thanks so much. kelly

    Answer: 
    I personally think that it would be better just to get another stand that is the exact sane and not spend your money repairing it because it is prone to breaking again. If your stand has always suited you well, then just stay with it and buy a new one.

    compatability with iPhone 5

    I own this Audio-technica USB microphone, and it works great with my Windows 7 computer. However, I now need to use it as an external microphone for recording video on an iPhone 5.

    I cannot find any adapter that will convert the iPhone 5 Lightning plug to a female USB so I could plug in this microphone, and if I did find it, I don't know if it would work (drivers, etc.).

    The only thing out there that seems to do it is the Apogee MiC USB Microphone - great reviews, but pricey.

    So, how can I utilize the investment I already made in my Audiotechnica - and open up the market for this great product to iPhone users?

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your inquiry. The AT8458 is the shock mount, the AT8137 is the windscreen. We do not make a desk stand other than the tripod that is sold with the microphone and that is not sold a separate product.

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your inquiry. You will need to contact the folks at Pro Tools for that answer. Some versions of Pro Tolls do not support USB microphones.
