Cup holder mic stand

14 posts in this topic

I posted this on the FB page, but wanted to share here with more photos. It dawned on me the other day that a cup holder is designed to work with...cups, or rather travel mugs with lids! I removed the lid from my favorite mug—Oxo metal one—and found that a K&M table stand, minus rubber feet, fits snugly inside. Tada! Add an ankle wrap or similar to tuck the rig into the cup holder and you now can attach a shock mount or dual mic bar and hypercardiods in a variety of ways. The tabletop stand extends nicely so that you can sneak the mic as high as you like and still be out of frame on a back seat shot angled at one front seat. 1d09bea82553046c5dfd756e8a79d960.jpg217ea76efcd214d5d47f766bd020367b.jpg4a5bacf208c056f73102a3bf5e83ba4d.jpg40186ec4f614a03e15c68a019ae77f76.jpg391e649b2f90c481a881743b4f9d4dd6.jpg7504d36d389c5f37989a990ebcac6b24.jpg34bfd83049300d564a17912a7faa11d6.jpg527c6f6b7da5c5acaa8bbe46f802ac95.jpgdefaa3f53bd0636ddb0178c487fff798.jpg

It's also quite stable, as it has a low center of gravity.

Great idea aff, I'm defiantly going to try that when I need to mic from below. I have been taping the mics to a Nite-Ize flex rods.

Do you have the model number for that K&M stand? Can't yet find it in their catalogue and looks to be a really nice compact (and hopefully reasonably light?) stand for travelling.

Cheers, Jez

Thanks Aff, currently out of stock at my local Canford but I'm now looking to pick one of these up along with a couple of the other K&M table stands. Cheers, J
