Names and function of parts

  1. Mic angle adjustment screw
  2. Mic stand attachment screw
  3. Desk clamp attachment handle

Mic centering

Mics can be centered as you like. Please pay attention to the following, however, to enable more stable centering.

  • Stability can be increased by angling the lower boom so that it is not perpendicular and setting the upper and lower booms so that they are at an acute angle. When setting a mic in a high position, we recommend starting by attaching the mic stand to a location that is itself high.
  • When using a heavy mic, such as a TASCAM TM-280, angle the mic attachment boom downward. In this setup with the mic suspended, the load on the mic angle adjustment screw is reduced and stability is increased.

Clamp attachment width: 55 mm or less
Stand dimensions:
Upper boom: 520 mm
