          A:

          Being a dynamic microphone, the AT808G does not require phantom power. The listed base does also not require external power to operate.

          Thank you for your inquiry. We do not make a windscreen for this microphone. You will need to check with a third party.

        • A:

          Thank you for your inquiry. I'm afraid the AT808G will not be loud enough for you since it is a dynamic mic. A closer fit would be the U857Q.

        what does the switch on the side fothe gooseneck mic AT8570MLa do
        Asked on 2/7/2013 by RayJ from Michigan

        1 answer

        • A:

          Thank you for your inquiry. The switch on the AT857Qmla is the roll off switch. The straight line means all frequencies are being passed. The bent line indicates that frequencies below 80 Hz are rolled off.
