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.

Yes, it does need a modification to be really useful.

      Comments about Musician's Gear Double Microphone Attachment:

      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).

        Priced good and neat product. The only concern I have is rigidity. To hold two microphones it may need an additional reinforcement. So far so good and working perfectly.

                Comments about Musician's Gear Double Microphone Attachment:

                All you need to do is get two jam nuts (the rings on the top threads of every mic. stand - where the mic clip screws on to the stand). You don't have to grind the threads as some have recommended in these comments). I took two jam nuts from my own mic. stands. You adjust the height of the jam nuts and that restricts the mic clip. A little trial-and-error and this will work. Note to musicians friend. Sell jam nuts (your competitors do) and link them to this item - you will get a lot less returns.

                This bar is a quality product and a real value. For some reason, the two side holes are threaded. This makes it difficult at times to get the mic clips to tighten in the desired position. This can be tricky, but can be done.

                  No need to keep stepping on the pedal to trigger the harmonizer. Mount 2 mics- 1 normal and one connected to a harmonizer. Move your head to the mic you want. Simplifies using the harmonizer- does require 2 mics but try this- you'll like the change.

                      Once this device was modified it worked as intended. The threaded holes would not allow the mic holders to tighten down in a chosen direction. Had to drill the threads out of the plate and once that was done it worked as intended.

                        I have a few of these now, one for simply holding two mic's on a stand for live vocal work.
                        The other two are used with condensers mounted "X-Y" for stereo and piano mic'ing.
