Got this double mic attachment because obviously I needed to be able to do stereo recordings without two stands. Other folks have reviewed this and given it low ratings because of adjustability problems... well, I don't find that to be a problem. I did need a washer to get the main connection lined up properly, so that the tilt is at the proper place. However, I did not find the need to drill or file out the holes where the mic clips are attached. If the handles are loosened, and the clip is put on first, the handles on the bottom can be tightened while holding the clip from above. It can be positioned any way you want. I have had no problems with it, and it sure beats a $10-20 adapter at the local music store (which would have to be ordered, anyway). Good buy for the money.

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.

Get (2) Jam nuts - no modifications needed.

      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.

        Comments about Musician's Gear Double Microphone Attachment:

        Don't buy this. It's so cheap, but it doesn't work well. Some mic clips/mounts can't be tightened down and the adjustable hinge won't stay in place. If you do buy this, plan on using lots of gaff tape to hold microphones and the mounting bar in place.

        Comments about Musician's Gear Double Microphone Attachment:

        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.

            Comments about Musician's Gear Double Microphone Attachment:

            It is what it is... a metal bar that allows you to connect two mic mounts (I'm using two small booms) to a mic stand. The tilting bottom mount is pointless for me, but I guess it may provide some extra flexibility if you need it. However, it's easily removed. You could make this if you wanted, but to be honest, it's not worth the hassle as this is so cheap.

            I use it to have two mics set up in my vocal booth where I don't really want another stand in a confined are. This would be an ideal solution for setting up a stereo pair.

            The X/Y problem solve on the cheap

            See all my reviews

            Comments about Musician's Gear Double Microphone Attachment:

            The screw mounts do not "spin through" which means the unit won't allow you to position a clip where you want then tighten the know, yes, a screw up on their part. I fixed by using a die grinder to take out some threads and allowing the screw to spin free at the bottom of its threads. I placed an "O" ring at the mount point to make the overall mount easier to position. You could probably just slip "O" rings on the clip mount screws too and be done with it.

            This thing works, is very inexpensive, but requires a little ingenuity to get it to work.

              Comments about Musician's Gear Double Microphone Attachment:

              This device will easily hold 3 microphones. We prefer to remove the center mount, then screw the flat plate directly onto the mike stand threads, then tighten the pivot hinge on the center mount to lock it in the vertical position, then put the center mount on top of the mike stand threads, We use them for a large vocal group, that needs a place to "dock" their microphones between songs. We reduced the number of mike stands on stage by 2/3.

              Also, previous comments about "plastic" parts are invalid. Its all metal as of May 2018.

You may have to work with it for a FEW minutes to position mics, (or whatever you mount), in the preferred direction, exactly as desired. Sturdy & durable.

                              I just started using this and have had issues with the two mic screws holding the microphones in place. I am using this for my overhead mics on my drum set. When I tighten the mic holders to the two screws, they don't tighten and the mics just spin on the mount. It is impossible to get the mics pointed in the right spot due to this. I will most likely be asking to return this item unless I happened to just get a faulty one and they can replace it.
