    Hi guys,

    does anyone make a 'holder' which would go on one mic stand, have 2 mic holders at 90° to each other and be simple to line up so one could just snap in a pair of 57's or pencil condensers or what have you and then line up the crosshairs or whatever, hold your tongue in the right way, and badda-boom badda-bing: X-Y perfect every time.

    Then if you had it set up and you didn't have it in the right spot, you just grab the whole stand and move it, or tilt it, and the two mics are still good relative to each other.

    I suppose the same could hold true for a m-s setup, or the Bloom County Configuration...no Bloomingdales Configuration...no Broom Hilda configuration...awww crap, you know the one.

    Does anybody make such an animal?

    Try the Sabra-Som stuff. For 38 bucks it's hard to beat and you can configure it just about any way you want! Check it out at:

    I went to Cascade and checked under microphone accessories. I was unable to find any reference on the site to anything by 'Sabra Som.' There was a bar there that looks lik it would work for X-Y and such but it was $225 bucks.

    Am I looking in the wrong place?

    It's under field recording equipment/mounts and stands.
