When you set up your stage or studio arrangement, the way you mic the room is always of the utmost importance. Microphone clips and clamps are the little hardware elements that provide you with the precise angles and position you need to make your recordings sound great. They may seem like an afterthought, but microphone clips and clamps are certainly crucial to your success. Basic mic clips form a C shape and easily secure a standard tapered microphone. The construction allows the microphone to slip in and out of position depending on how the artist chooses to use it. The singer can easily eject a microphone from a basic clip and a drummer can tilt and arrange the mic quite easily with this configuration as well. These basic models are your standard option for stage setups and suit most microphone purposes. Clothespin microphone clips offer a more versatile fit. Whereas the basic mic clip requires a tapered microphone, the clothespin clip can easily secure a larger mic shaft. This way you can put the head of the mic as close or as far away from your amp or yourself as you please. Clamp kits come in handy for those looking to place a microphone in harder to reach areas. Having a cumbersome mic stand in the middle of your drum kit can easily become problematic. Clamps can attach to your already in place drum hardware and give you the option of placing a mic within your kit, avoiding any extra stands. When you want to mic your amp, the innovative Audix Cab Grabber Microphone Holder is a unique option. The mount secures the microphone and attaches to the side of your amp so the mic can reach around and get a perfect front on position. This takes away the need for another stand and gives you a great direct sound. Microphone clips and clamps can easily make your playing experience easier. If your microphone setup is tight, you won't have to take a break to fix anything that may have come loose or slipped out of place. If you're thinking of hitting the stage or the studio, it's a good idea to make sure your microphones are securely in place.
