Does the Audio-Technica AT2020 come with a stand?
Audio-Technica AT2020 Overview
It comes with a pivoting stand mount for straightforward attachment to your existing mic stand.
Do I need shock mount for AT2020?
Since the AT2020 is a cardioid condenser microphone, you should always use it with a shock mount. The AT2020 has inner circuitry and a preamp that requires power, and because of this, the microphone is very sensitive, making it susceptible to resonance and other noises or interference.
How do I connect my AT2020 to boom arm?
For the AT2020 microphone, thread the swivel mount onto the boom arm. The microphone may be inserted and threaded into the swivel mount by turning the ring nut on the mount. Make certain the microphone is fully secured into the mount. For the AT2035 microphone, thread the AT8458 shock mount onto the boom.
