I've just purchased a DPA UA0837 stereo boom - the one without the mic clips. Now, I didn't know this beforehand, but the sliders on the boom are designed to hold mic clips with a narrow thread (a la the DPA clips)... . The problem is that the sliders have a kind of groove that ensures that only clips with a very narrow base will fit there. I can't, for example, use my Rode NT5 clips with the thread adapter fitted in... although the adapter's thread is the correct size, the base of the clip is too wide to fit properly on the boom sliders. This is quite difficult to describe. I hope you can catch my drift. Does anyone here use this boom with non-DPA clips? I'm looking for a clip that will both hold a CMC5 mic AND fit onto this boom (and don't say the DPA clip! I'm hoping for something less expensive). Any suggestions most welcome.
