This double mic holder is the best way to set up a coincident pair of XY mics - perfect for drum overheads or other stereo requirements. Cut the number of required mic stands in half!

This thing works ok as shipped, but with a very minor adjustment, it's perfect. As shipped, when you attach a mic clip to each of the brass studs, there's no way to precisely align the direction that they point when screwing down the clips. Instead, remove both brass studs, and with a Dremel tool (or even a small round file) grind the threads off the holes in the cross-arm of the bracket. After that thread is gone, the mic studs will just slip into the crossbar & spin freely. I put a small o-ring over the studs to keep them from falling back out (o-rings from paintball CO2 tanks fit perfectly). This lets you precisely position both mic clips to get your XY lined up at the desired angle & direction.

I am using this to hold two overhead mikes for drum set. It has two design defects: 1.) the mount knobs on either side don't spin freely which means the mic mound will only tighten in one position which is probably NOT where you want it and 2.) the center hanger doesn't tighten down centered on the axis of the bar. I was able to correct #1 by grinding off some threads with a Dremel tool to make it spin freely (and use 2 large washers I had laying around) and fixed #2 by wrapping a pices of solder around two threads to make a crushable washer. Now it is TIGHT, solid and holds my mics exactly where I want them and cost a quarter of what the others cost. So by all means get it, but be prepared to do some "engineering" to make it do what you want.

    Comments about Musician's Gear Double Microphone Attachment:

    This little item does the job. For those having a problem adjusting the mic holders to this product hasn't figured out how to make it work yet. I haven't had any problem setting the mics at the angle I prefer them to be. The product seems durable and should last for many years. I do DJ / Karaoke and needed a 2-mic setup for those singing duets....this was exactly what I needed...I can even add a 3rd mic to the center it needed. You also can't beat the price + free shipping.

        I'm using this Double Mic Attachment to hold a vocal mic and my harmonica mic. This works very well and keeps another mic stand off stage. Who needs the clutter.

          Comments about Musician's Gear Double Microphone Attachment:

          I agree with others that the screw connections should not be threaded all the way to the end so that the mic holders can be turned in any direction. While it is true that jamb nuts can be used to accomplish this there are several issues. First, you have to HAVE extra jamb nuts because they are not supplied. Second, if the nut is very thick it takes up most of the threads making the connection to the head less secure. Third, if the nut is very thin, it's hard to get hold of it between the body of the holder and the mic head.
          I was please that it came with a swivel to adjust the angle but the same thing applies. Without a jamb nut, it doesn't swivel in the direction that you want it to.
          As others have commented, this is all easy to fix but the consumer shouldn't have to do it. It should be part of the design.

              I use this mic holder for a dual microphone set-up on set doing interviews. I read the reviews that other people had written and wasn't totally sure it was exactly what I was looking for. After it arriving, I realized that it was more than what I had even imagined! It's solid. For the price I was expecting a hunk of plastic, however, it's very solid and looks like it's going to last a long time. The mics are able to be positioned in many different positions and it even turns at the yoke allowing me to put the mics in the exact right place!

                Comments about Musician's Gear Double Microphone Attachment:

                The problem - The piece that screws into your mic clip is threaded all the way to the end. That means that you need to have your threads flush with the holder when you start screwing it in. It is nearly impossible to get it tight, especially if you have a larger clip for something like a large diaphragm condenser. If they just eliminated a few threads toward the base of the knob it would work perfectly.

                The good - it's heavy duty, truly enough for professional stage use. Very adjustable, you can put the mics in almost any position & lock them there.

                  Same complaint everyone else has... the knobs are useless the way they're designed and they do not lock down the mic clips as intended. Another reviewer mentioned using jam nuts, so I'll try that. Filing the thread is another suggestion in these reviews, but who's got the time for that crpp?
                  Apart from that, this is one heavy-duty piece and is otherwise excellent.

                  Use double mics for main/harmony vocals - this unit is perfect, BUT, you must file out the threads on the mic clip "bolts" for ease of positioning the clips ( simple job)

                      The two outside knobs are threaded "all the way down", and hence will not easily allow you to lock the microphone clips in your preferred orientation. I filed down the last 1/8 inch of threads next to the knob so that the knob would spin freely in the bracket. This took about 15 minutes... This modification allows you to tighten the microphone clip in any orientation. I've read that other brands of double microphone attachment bars already have this modification, but this one does not (as of Aug 2015).
