    The audix cab grabber is functional and well designed. The "heavy-duty" spring is strong and takes some strength to put the bar in place, but once in place, it's there to stay. That being said, there are a few issues that need to be voiced, (1)The product workes great with smaller combos. I have a blues jr. and a messa nomad 1x12 and it works great. The mic can be placed anywhere from about the center to the edge of the speaker with no problem, but with larger 112 combos, there are problems, a)because the mic arm is only about 5"(from bar to the end of the mic arm) plus a mic clip (about 1")you only have about 6" from the edge of the amp to the positioned mic. I have a fender pro reverb with tilt back legs. The pro is approx. 26" wide. Center of the amp is 13"(from the edge of the amp), a 12" speaker would extend 6" from that 13" center on each side. With these measurements. the audix cab grabber would just barely be at the edge of the speaker (90 degrees on axis). b) Also the tilt back legs have to be "tilted back" for the bar to fit securely on the side of the amp(no big problem). c) Putting the bar across the top is not a good idea because of getting in the way of the control knobs. Positioned from the bottom is almost impossible. There is a SOLUTION. I use a 6" gooseneck adapted to the arm of the grabber. This gives me that additional length to place the mic well inside the diameter of the speaker, to find that "sweet spot" With the added weight of the gooseneck and the mic(I use a shure beta 58) the mic holds its position very well. The cab grabber works great with 212 combos or 412 cabs. If you use a larger 112 combo, use these simple calculations to determine the position of the mic or buy a gooseneck

    Given how it won't work with my setup, that it has limited placement options, and that it picks up cab vibrations, I had to take mine back. Just didn't work out for me. If you've got a brighter amp like a Fender or speakers where miking up the cone edge is what you're after, then you might have a different experience.
    Clamps securely over the top or on the side of your cab or combo. Keeps mic placement from moving. Clips hold the mic cable in place out of the way. This is great for crowded stages and consistent mic placement.

    However, if you have a cab or amp like a wide body 1x12 combo, or one that requires mic placement more toward the center of cone, on the cap edge or even right in the middle, then this isn't the product for you. Unless you're miking it off-axis, perhaps. The cone edge is not the ideal mic placement option for every amp, cab, and speaker, as some other reviewers suggest.

    My Mesa amps with Black Shadows, which are very dark, like to have a 57 pointed straight on where the cone and dust cap meet. I've even had a really good sound guy point a kick drum mic at them straight into the center, and it sounded awesome. With the wider body combo that I have, which also has a slanted top which precludes clamping to the top, you can't place the mic where it needs to go.

    The clamp also, naturally, picks up cab vibrations. If you've really got the amp cranked up, this can be a problem too. But some cabs resonate pretty well at median volumes, so again, you're out of luck
    Sturdily made, should last forever. No complaints here.
    Really pricey for something with limited placement options.

      Comments about Audix CabGrabber Microphone Holder:

      I got this bundled with an Audix i5 and have used it at almost every show since I received it. It saves floor space, and you don't have to worry as much about kicking the mic stand over or the mic moving because it go bumped.

      I did notice that it doesn't work for every amp thought. some of the side walls are too thick, or the amp isn't wide enough on the sides for it to grip properly. In these cases a mic like the E609 is good so that it can lay flat against the grill by being draped over the top of the amp.

      I gave it 4 stars because of the limitations it has with thickness of the amp walls and the dimensions of the amp. It has worked fine on the two Fender amps I've owned, but I noticed it didn't like a Marshall that I tried it on. Other than that it's a great product.

        Comments about Audix CabGrabber Microphone Holder:

        It is just what it claims to be: a simple tool designed to do one job perfectly. Obviously designed by someone who does sound, it goes on and off in seconds and doesn't get in the way and isn't vulnerable. Note the dimensions of your cabinet, though, and see if you need an extension. On my custom-built 1x12 cab, I have to mount it underneath because the cab is too wide. Since I put the cab on a stand, that's no problem. I will, however, buy a goose-neck extension for those times I don't use the amp-stand.

            Comments about Audix CabGrabber Microphone Holder:

            I'm using mine on a 70's Silver Face Princeton Reverb and it works great. I "park" it in the open back when transporting my amp and when setting up simply pull it out & attach it to the side - no dragging an extra mic stand. I was concerned about mic placement so I also purchased a 6" goose neck. It turned out that was unnecessary as my EV RE-11 lines up just fine off axis mid cone on the single speaker. I have no worries about the strength of the spring - manufacturing is well thought out. It looks clean on stage, the sound is very accurate. There are counterfits out there and this is a bit pricey, but I really like all the features of the Audix Cab Grabber. If it'll fit your cab it is very convenient.

            Comments about Audix CabGrabber Microphone Holder:

            Basically, the cab grabber didn't extend far enough to clamp on to my Sunn 4x12 cab. In addition to that, the clamps were both cracked, although they still functioned and I imagine they wouldn't break further. I'm really shocked at the poor quality of this. I expected better from both the name and from the price as well. I will be returning this. That said, I imagine that this may work on a smaller cab and be okay, but for the price and with today's competition, I expected greater than this.

              This is my third cab grabber. I suspect that the quality control has improved as it is easier to adjust and holds it's position better than the other two I own.
              That being said, I love this product it makes set up a breeze.

              a graceful solution

              By gravydb

              Comments about Audix CabGrabber Microphone Holder:

              Audix Cab Grabber: I've owned it about a year, using it on my Hot Rod Deville 212, and it works perfectly. I like our stage setup to be as clean looking as possible, and this cab grabber really helps, eliminating extra mic stands. This is especially helpful on cramped stages! A note to those complaining about not being able to position the mic at the center of your speaker... why in god's name would you be trying to do that? You're supposed to position the mic toward the edge of the speaker! 66% of the distance from the center is the general rule of thumb. Season to taste, but definitely not the center! I wholeheartedly recommend this item. I gave it a slight ding for "value" because the price seems a little steep, although you can easily spend alot more for a traditional mic stand, the cab grabber is a much more clean & graceful solution.

              Comments about Audix CabGrabber Microphone Holder:

              I use a Carvin Legacy II and it fits just great. The arm's swing is plenty to get the speaker wherever I want( for me it's close to the outer edge of the speaker)I bought this because my amp is on the platform with the drums and besides constantly getting knocked around, the mini stand I had in front of my amp really picked up the kick and vibrations.This solved that problem just as I hoped it would as the mic is nicely isolated. I may buy another and have two mics at different axis points.

              I used it on a Marshall 4x12, Boogie Nomad, Fender twin and deluxe reverb. You can put a mini boom onto the standard 5/8 threads if you need to get to the center cone on some amps (usually not a good sound). Most mics you buy come with the clip that fits them and again those fit on the standard threads.
