Microphone stands and holders
Microphone placement is a critical element in getting the best sound from your microphone. It is extremely important to have a microphone stand that is both extremely stable and easily adjustable. Unlike live mic stands which are engineered to be light weight and easy to move, studio mic stands tend to be heavier and have longer reach. In addition to providing extra stability, added mass makes mic stands less likely to be affected by floor-transmitted vibrations. The main types of microphone stands are:
- Straight stands with tripod or round base
- Boom stands
- Low-profile stands
- Desktop stands
- Overhead stands
Straight microphone stands are available with a round base or with three folding legs. Stands with a round base are extremely strong, stable and difficult to tip over. Racks with three legs tend to work better on uneven surfaces, but you can easily trip over their legs. Boom stands has a lockable joint which connects the lower stand to the upper part, the so-called boom. Stands of this type can be easily adapted to different instruments and playing positions. Low-profile stands are used for microphones that are designed for bass drums or guitar amps. Overhead stands are needed to place the microphone over the drum set to capture the sound of the cymbals, as well as to give a more natural sound to the entire drum set. Desktop stands are especially popular in radio broadcasting, they can be quickly and securely placed within their operating range.
The easiest way to attach a microphone to a stand is usually the included clip. Some popular mics use special clips that can be expensive to replace when they break. Jaw-style clips are another popular option. While they may not look as sleek and unobtrusive as fixed clips, they can adapt to various microphones and different diameters. Shock mounts are the preferred method for mounting microphones in the studio, and sometimes even on stage. This prevents the microphone from picking up low-frequency noise transmitted mechanically through the stand.
