Which mic holder - stand or rim mount?

Postby Robin » Mon Jan 28, 2019 2:59 pm

I plan to get a Shure SM57 mic for my 2 Meinl Headliner congas. Is it better to get a floor mic stand, or one mounted to the rim? Recommendations?

Hi.
Mounting clamps avoid you carrying mike stands...
When I use my Giovannis (with Comfort curve rim), I use these : https://www.thomann.de/fr/lp_592a_x_mic_claw_with_z_rod.htm?ref=search_rslt__361615_1_0
When i use another set with traditional rims, I use these : https://www.thomann.de/fr/shure_a_50_d.htm?sid=ab3ba1679982efc7c392f7ad7258475e, but I'm considering switching to this : https://www.thomann.de/fr/shure_a56d_rimklemme.htm.

I use 2 SM57 too.

Just my 2 cents.
