A good basic mic mount Apr 16, 2010
By Joyanne M. Bell
This provides an economical way to consolidate several mics on a couple of stands. It is strong and solid. The only caveat I see is that the center screw connects directly to the hinge, so the thread position doesn't always line up well with the tilt. This is to say that, first, you turn the mount to the way that you want it to tilt and you set that position with an included lock nut. Then, though, you screw on your center microphone clip, and when fully screwed into place the clip points in an indefinite direction. It might be nice to have a second lock nut that can fix the mic clip in a suitable direction. A washer of just the right thickness is another way the buyer can solve that issue.

Excellent for the price Dec 09, 2010
By Bobby Reedy
I bought this to hold two mics for Karaoke.
It works very well, except for two things, but those are easy to overcome.
First, the studs are too long for economy mic holders or clamps. The cavities on my holders were too shallow, so I had to improvise. I used 3 rubber gasket/washers like you'd find in the end of a garden hose. You can buy a dozen for about a buck and a half, and they even come in cool colors, too. Take your bar with you to the hardware store or home center to get the right size. I had some laying around and I think they're 5/8ths but don't quote me.
Second, the tightener on the center stud is almost worthless, you need a pliers to tighten it. If you get er cranked down and don't plan to move the bar much, it should be fine... just seems a bit amatuer to pull out pliers to crank on a piece of gear in the middle of a gig.
Overall, a nice looking addition to my karaoke setup. See my pic and comments above.

great product! Attaches easily to a stand. Mic holders attach easily. A great use for singing group with hand-held mics decreasing the platform clutter of excess stands.

Stereo Configuration May 23, 2010
By Thomas J. Turner
In response to Matthew.
What you're referring to is the "3 to 1 Rule" that applies to all stereo micing applications and microphones. For every 1 foot your mic is away from your source the mics should be 3 feet apart. If you're a fair distance away this can become a ridiculous spacing so there are alternatives. When you can't get a "true" stereo image, you use an X-Y, ORTF, or various other stereo micing configurations. Look them up, wikipedia does a good job to explain their function and science. Those configurations are what this adapter is for. Two or more microphones close together that pick up the source in the same way that human ears do, in stereo.
Anywho, This is as good a stereo bar as any other minus the fact that it doesn't allow horizontal adjustment of mic spacing for longer/shorter microphones. Regardless, a great product and extremely good pricing.

Nice adaptor Feb 15, 2010
By Matthew Montchalin
Sturdy and well-built, this is not a cheap, plastic, throw-away gizmo that you use today and break tomorrow. Rather, it is solidly made, and lets you screw as many as three microphone holders onto the studs. I expect it to last for years to come.
But be careful if you have several Shure SM57 microphones, and were hoping to screw three onto a single holder. I know it's tempting to get lots of SM57 and SM58 microphones because they are so durable and reasonably priced, and backup audio is always a good idea. But the Shure instruction sheet says you should keep your SM57 microphones spaced apart from each other, and reasonably separate. The people at Shure even list a formula to abide by, and on the basis of that formula, it appears that a few inches apart might not be enough. A certain proportionality must be observed between the distance to the sound source, and the distance between the microphones. But what I did, is that I went and bought a bunch of 19 inch, flexible, steel gooseneck extenders, screwed them in (thereby extending them from the adaptor), and that lets you spread the goosenecks apart before finally attaching the microphone holders.
So, the bottom line here is that this is a really nifty microphone & tripod accessory, but it is even better if you also get some 19 inch, flexible, steel gooseneck extenders too. Come to think of it, that's exactly what you are going to need if you have a bunch of SM57 microphones, and want them all to fit on the same tripod. SM57 microphones don't pick up properly if you crowd them together too tightly. (It has something to do with the shape of their parabolic, cardioid, pickup pattern, and if there is a tiny magnet inside of them that turns into a supermagnet if you feed your XLR cables phantom power, it all starts to make lots of sense.) Gooseneck extenders come in a variety of sizes, and the longest ones I could find, were 19 inches. So, assuming you already have a microphone stand and boom arm, the next thing you want to get is a few gooseneck extenders.
