  • Q & A

    Which AT or other brand foam windscreen fits this mic?


    You may use any accessories for the AT8004L in the list below. You may use the AT8101.


    Why do I hear a strange high pitch noise after using the microphone? I was testing out the AT8004L Omni-directional dynamic interview microphone with 60D DSLR. After I recorded a short clip of video, I played back and heard a strange high pitch noise on the background.


    Thank you for your inquiry. Please contact our Audio Solutions department at 330-686-2600 ext 5000. They can help with this.


    I have a Canon DSLR and I want to use the AT8004L for interviews. How can I make this wireless? I have seen other people use the Senheiser wireless


    It really depends. Please email with more details of the products you are using, and the products you intend to use. Thanks!


    Is this the microphone that Elvis is shown using in many of his performances? If so, is this microphone the AT8004L both for live vocal as well as for studio recording?


    Thank you for your inquiry. This is not the microphone that Elvis used because it has only been available for a couple of years. I would not use this mic for live vocals because it is an omni directional microphone and would pick up too much stage noise.
