  • Need a recommendation for mic clips...

    So I've gotten my mic collection up to snuff, and I'm pretty much ready to start doing my own demo recordings. This is going to be the first time I'm mixing and recording my own drums.



    My big question is what mic clips should I pick up for the snare and toms? I'm going to be using SM57's on them.



    I've heard the Samson, On Stage and the Audix D-Vise are junk, which leaves the Audix D-Flex. Any opinion on these?



    Is there another mic clip I should look at? This will be used strictly in my home studio, not getting beat on by lots of people. Given this fact, I do not want to buy crap that I will have to re-purchase after a few sessions.



    THoughts?

    Check to make sure the Audix clips will actually HOLD an SM57 before considering them.



    Are you opposed to using actual mic stands? Sounds like you want rim or hardware monted clip devices only...



    I've got a number..

    The On-Stage works great, an LP claw works fine, the clips that came with my last-gen Sennheiser e604 mics are the best, IMO.

        I got some of these

        http://www.audiopile.net/products/Mi...MIC_CLIP.shtml

        from Mark over at the live sound sub-forum a couple of years ago. I think they're exactly the same as the Sennheiser clips. Just attach the mic holder for whatever mic you've got and attach it to the rim of the drum. Works good and won't break the bank.
        <div class="signaturecontainer">Here's a tip - if you put out some horrible lo-fi recording that sounds like a Gorilla banging an antelope while using a vacuum with a bad belt drive to suck up a floor full of marbles and silverware - and folks don't line up in mass numbers to hop on your wagon... maybe it ain't us who don't &quot;get it&quot;. - THX1138</div>

            Nice heads up! I've actually got to pick up some cables from them, so this will work out well. Thanks!

                    May pick one of those, as I only have them for tom mics (e604s)...



                    Do yourselves a favor and look into these as well:

                    http://www.justdrumsonline.com/p-613...mic-mount.aspx



                    Think I'll get one and see if it can be positioned for a snare mic while mounted off the hat stand.

                    If so, I'll buy another and use them for hats and snare mics.

                    If to, then I'll continue using the LP claw for my snare.

                        Shure A56D are pricey, but I've always had excellent results and they are definitely compatible with your SM57's.
