You can buy a Lav Mic System from most of your local and big brand musical instrument stores like, Guitar Center, Sam Ash etc. They can also be found at your local professional sound store or online(when buying online I strongly sugest you speak to a sound professional to make sure you get the right system for your needs, and Geographical location.)
Will the DeW It Right Tap Mics work with other Lav Mic Systems?
Yes! In order for your DeW It Right Tap Mics to work with Lav Mic Systems other than Shure or Sennheiser, you will need an adapter for that system.

For example, you can type into google, "Shure TA4F to Sennheiser 3.5mm Adapter". You can also search for a local or online Pro Audio store, and they usally can make your adaptor for you. The adaptors usually range from $15-$30. PRG.com is a good starting point.

What are DeW It Right Tap Mics?
The DeW IT Right Tap microphones are two omnidirectional condenser lavelier microphones, with one connector, that are made specifically for Tap Dancing. They are reinforced at both ends of the wires to prevent breakage. The microphone is incased in a very durable metal to prevent damage to the microphone when accidentally stepped on. We have to different connector types: TA4F connector compatible with Shure Lav Pack Systems(Transmitter and Receiver), and 3.5mm locking pin connector compatible with Sennheiser Lav Pack Systems(Transmitter and Receiver) . The wires are incased in a thick durable rubber to prevent breakage and fraying over time.
Are there any other tap mics like the DeW It Right Tap Mics on the Market(readily available)?
No. There are no other tap mics like the DeW It Right Tap Mics on the Market(readily available). The DeW It Right Tap Mics are the ONLY lavalier tap microphones made specifically for tap dancing. There are other sound companies that make similiar lavelier microphones on a special order basis. However, these microphones are usually made for speaking and singing, making them very easy to damage when used for tap dancing. Also, the price of those mics are double to triple the price of the DeW It Right Tap Microphones.
