          My ears think the e606 and e906 are better than the e609...

            Here's an amp tilt-back stand with a boom attachment.

              Note that modulo resurrected an old thread to ask about the Z-bars. I'm pretty sure the other issues regarding specific mics were addressed a year and a half ago.

                  It could still be helpful to someone looking for the same thing.

                    Completely helpful; we've been considering something like the Z-bar for a few months, and would love to have something smaller and less obtrusive than a mini-boom for both our tilt-stand-ed combo amps...

                    Of course, the fact that it doesn't get much praise above does not help much.

                    I don't think any of the permanently mounted options will pass muster either, but I appreciate seeing all the suggestions nonetheless. I may just see about making some sort of home-made but perfect for our particular application solution...

                        I was cruising Ebay when I found a clamp/boom unit made by Heil. Look up their site,

                          I wasn't complaining about either resurrecting the thread, or of the microphone comments. Merely pointing out that the thread was old, so nobody got insulted by the OP not responding.

                            We have a couple of the Z bar mic holders. We use them about 20% of the time, otherwise we use a shorty boom for better placment. One of the options is, we have couple of short (like 8") goosnecks that we can extend from the Z bar.

                            If you're not worried about the cosmetics of your amp, I've seen guys attach a goosneck flange (like you'd see on a podium) to the side of their cabinet and use a mic on a goosneck for the job. This approach does devalue your amp cabinet slightly (having something protrude from the side can make it a little harder to pack sometimes as well) and also provides zero isolation from the box it's self (a similar drawback to the Z bar).

                            I know this thread is old, just adding some more info to the mix.

                            Just some thoughts

                                I made one using a 2" spring clamp from Harbor Freight (cheap). Drilled a whole in the bottom to fit a 6" gooseneck extension and screwed on a mic holder. I glued cork to the clamp so it wouldn't mar the tolex on my amp. Works great.
