    Not enough room for the mic stand!

    Sign in to disable this ad
    Small studio. Angled roof. We built a small wall of owens-corning 703 around the drum kit. Now I don't have room for the overhead mic stand.

    I have 2 small diaphragm mics in an X/Y on a stereo bar. I have just enough room for a mic stand in front of the kick, however when the mics are in the correct location, they're too heavy for the stand. The stand is tipping over AND bending at the waste hinge.
    It is a cheap, off-the-shelf mic stand. We're going to replace it.
    Any creative solutions out there? Any mic stand suggestions?
    I'm considering mounting something to either the wall or ceiling.
    Thoughts?
    Thanks!

    ^^^This. Leave the whole stand up there permanently. If you can spare them, leave the mics and cables up there permanently also.
