mic stand

Recommended Posts

http://www.bswusa.com is the best source for items like that. Here is their selection of mic booms: http://www.bswusa.com/searchresult.asp?searchType=category&subcat=mics-booms


I picked up the OC White brand one for around $100, and it works as expected. If you want perfect balance and no spring sounds, you'l lstart paying more, but since I don't move the mic when I'm on air, the cheap one works great for me.

Very cheap for a studio, and yes, Im proud to admit I am a Tin Can Broadcaster. Pride in best bang for my buck and jerry rigging experience.

Those mic arms that people suggest in the previous posts, are great, beautiful, look very proffetional ... but they are a bit expensive for people who run a webradio as a hobby.


What we did?

We bought a desk lamp from IKEA (the one with the 2 metal arms and coils, that you can move around), it cost less than 7 euros. We took out the lamp, and screwd the mic there. PERFECT !


I have a foto somewhere, if I find it today I will post it later.


For the 3 months that we are using it, it doesn't make noise when you move it, even when you are onair.

Also, the mic we have screwd to it, is a AT2020 (condenser mic, I think around 450gr weight).

I couldn't find the foto, so I took a frame from a video (my daughter is pretending that she is having a live show).

It is not the best foto, but I am uploading it in order to show you at least half of the IKEA lamp, and also to show you that it is possible to do it, very easily - if I could attache the mic to the arm, anybody can do it, believe me.

I use the Q-Mic in the RadioKick Studio, and im in love. It broke once (used too much), but I was able to fix it with a misc. screw.


The cable built in is a nice feature, and is great quality.




Marty's a great guy to deal with, and if you're an ebayer, he sells them there!
