Microphones and Equipment
The microphone recommended in the video is the Audiotechnica ATR-2100 USB Microphone. That microphone has been discontinued, but the Samson Q2U [Amazon affiliate link] is exactly the same, and even is a bit cheaper. This is the microphone we always recommended to people outside the United States, because Audiotechnica doesn't ship outside the U.S.
Amazon's availability on the boom arms and shock mounts is constantly changing; you can see my most current product recommendations at this link, which leads to Amazon affiliate links: http://www.kit.co/patflynn
