The AT8688 anti-shock microphone stand effectively isolates the mounted microphone from impact vibration and mechanical noise normally transmitted through the surface the stand is on. It is intended for use with microphones stood on lecterns, pulpits, conference tables and similar surfaces.

The AT8688/AT8688S is ideal for gooseneck microphones but is compatible with any microphone using an industry standard XLRM 3-pin XLRM connectors.

The AT8688S features a toggle switch that mutes the microphone by 64dB. The circuitry also operates a light in the switch, powered by the 24-52V phantom source, to indicate when the mic is “on”.



  • Heavy die-cast construction and non-slip bottom pads minimize surface vibration to the unit.
  • Low-profile design with low-reflectance black finish for minimum visibility.
  • Improved, tighter fitting mic socket reduces unintended movement of the microphone.
  • A phantom powered mute switch with “on” indicator.
  • Newly designed ‘switch-off’ circuit for the mute with attenuation level of up to 64dB.
