Default M51 Mic stands

We recently purchased the LMS measurement system from LinearX systems. The system comes with one microphone. The mic is non standard in size, less than 1/2" and normal mic stands wont hold it properly, not to mention the reflections caused by the larger stands.

Below is a link from their website showing the mic mounted in a stand. I inquired about the stand and was informed that the stand was in fact a test tube stand. I've looked for a month on the internet and can't seem to find these " test tube stands and was wondering if anyone on this forum would know of a supplier that would have these stands.

Thanks; Doug

I found the table top stands at Edmond Scientific:

http://www.scientificsonline.com/EC/...egoryid=317292

They list a lot of ring holders, but I couldn’t find the test tube or flask clamps. The Edmond guys are usually helpful and a phone call would likely get you zeroed in. I've got some large catalogs at home chocked full of this stuff if that doesn’t help.

I've also found that the Audio Technica mic clamps will usually hold anything as small as a pencil. Ive used then with Bruel Kjaer, Nueman and AKG mics, all of witch I think are a little larger than yours. Markertek has a generic version on their web site

http://www.markertek.com search for the M2 and M4 mic clamps

Ive used chemistry clamps for supporting mics with a lot of success. The thing you will want to watch out for is vibration and resonance from the stand. The clamp will make such a good mechanical connection that they will all become one unit. A few wraps of neoprene rubber in between the mic and the clamp should fix this issue.

Default Yet an other suggestion:

Check out the Audio Technica M8410 at Markertek. Its an other clamp that Ive used very successfully.

(more fun than working)

Default Mic/Test tube stands

Thanks for your reply Dave. I will be in Toronto on Saturday and will drop in to Edmond Scientific to see what they have in stock.

Most of the websites you sent me I've seen. I thought I would get lucky and get the exact stand they use on the LinearX brochure I posted. Maybe someone on this forum will recognize the stand I'm looking for. I might get creative and design and build my own LOL!! The Audio Technica mount is great for vibration isolation if you are recording music, but still to large as to cause to many reflections when making neasurements.

Thanks again and Happy Independence Day to you all south of the border. BTW July 4th is my birthday, I won't mention what year LOL
