Cheap Microphone stand

Latch Lake Mic King 3300Every recording studio needs microphone stands. There’s no way around it.

But does it really matter which ones you get,or are the all the same? After all,they just kinda stand there right?

For beginners…questions such as these make it tough to know where to start.

Need some pointers? Here’s a little guide to help you out:

First off…

Start Simple

If right now you have zero stands in your studio,then start with just one.

Use it for a while,and if at some point you decide a second stand is required to do your job efficiently,then you can’t worry about it then.

Depending on what you do in your studio,that day may never come. One stand may be all you need.

If you record multiple people at once,you’ll probably want more. If you want to {record acoustic drums},you’ll definitely want more. If it’s just you and your guitar,then you probably won’t.

Find a stand in your price range

These are the general price you’ll find for microphone stands:

  • Low End – $10-$20
  • Good Midrange - $50-$100
  • High End – $500-$1000

Avoid the low end for one simple reason: Cheap stands tip over and break your mics. Don’t destroy a 500 dollar mic just to save 20 bucks on a stand.

A solid mic stand in the midrange of around 50-100 dollars is perfect for general studio purposes.

If the high-end happens to still be within your price range,here’s what you’ll get for the added expense:

The 3 Benefits of high-end microphone stands

  • Stability- They’re heavier and more balanced. So don’t have to worry about them tipping over.
  • Acoustic Isolation - They don’t transfer footstep vibrations from the floor to the mic.
  • Flexibility - They can position mics at angles that cheap stands simply can’t. And when you position them somewhere,they stay put and they don’t sag.

If these added benefits sound to you like they might be worth the extra investment…

Here are 3 Solid High-End Models to Check Out

There are 3 names that come to mind: Latch Lake,Atlas Sound,and K&M.

now that you have a computer, you'll need a microphone. It can be a stand-alone type, a wired headset/mic combo, a Bluetooth type, etc. I use one of these:

Then, you'll need a broadband Internet high-speed connection. It can be the slowest broadband service out there, but it must be broadband. Then, you'll need a program which allows phone calls, like Google Talk, a part of Google Mail; or maybe Yahoo Messenger, or similar. I use Google Voice.
If you buy commercial VoIP service from some provider, you can use a "Software Phone" instead of Google Talk or Yahoo Messenger
