Mounting Mic on Light Stand
on Apr 9, 2009 at 12:04:25 am

Is there a way to mount a microphone onto a light stand?

I'm working with:

Audio side...
Senn' Shock Mount with a 3/4 (5/8?) male
A plastic Mic Clip with something close to a 3/4 female
Camera Shoe Mount Mic Clip with something close to a 1/4 female

Light Stand side...
3/4 (5/8?) stud (male)
1/4 female

Ideally there's going to be something that will make it so I can mount my ME66 onto the light stand's stud.

I have made an adaptor from a 5/8" lighting stand to a 3/8" thread.
But mind you I do have acess to a lathe.
Something like this Manfrotto 014-38 ADAPTER RAPIDAPTER 5/8M TO 3/8.
Or try getting hold of a Manfrotto 035 SUPER CLAMP and 013 ADAPTER SPIGOT, this will give you a way to mount a mic on just about ANYTHING !!!!

Dan,

Others have good answers. I often use a C-stand with a boom arm and grip head. I then use the post of a desktop mic stand (about 6 to 8 inches tall - I just screw off the base part), mount it using the grip head, and then any mic can be threaded on the end. Those other adapters are probably great, but I have all this stuff with me anyway.

Hope all is well on the other side of the mountains. Here in the valley I'm ready for summer!

Have fun!

yep Rob, we've been doing it that way too as long as I can remember. Here's a pic from today's shoot.

That's exactly what I was looking for. Thanks.

Rob, ready for summer over here too. I've had enough of this t-shirt to snow weather all in one day thing.
