    Is there a windscreen for the ATR 1500 mic? If so, part number and cist please.

    John

    Thanks for your inquiry. Unfortunately the ATR 1500 does not have any windscreen.

    Is the ATR-1500 the same as the ATR-30?

    Brad

    The replacement for the ATR-30 is the ATR1300. http://www.audio-technica.com/cms/wired_mics/0f95db45ea030f91/index.html

    ATR1500 I am curious as to which is "forward" with respect to the microphone. In other words, how do I hold the mic to know I am speaking into the right portion of the cardioid pattern? I have checked FAQ's and the packaged paperwork to no avail. Thanks in advance. Gordon,

    Imagine there is an arrow running through the microphone from the connector where it plugs in through the windscreen. The direction the arrow is pointing is "forward" with regard to the pattern. For optimal pick-up, the sound source should be directed into the windscreen from the direction of the arrow.
