The big thing with clip on mics is that they don't go far enough down the bell. You can make a custom mount. I made a how to video on my facebook (link below). I use a 98 with the GLXD receiver system. Great for me because it works overseas and plays nice with guitar pedals ... 883840042/

I have been an advocate for the Kelly Shu mounts, and they are a very strong and secure system.

I have recently changed things up, however. After recording a bunch of live shows, the consensus was that the Beta-52 was catching too much stage sound (it is a rock setting with loud electric guitar and drums). I also felt the parabolic effect of being roughly centered was contributing.

I switched to an Audix D4 and a Stage Ninja Clamp. It's lighter, and allows for more adjustable mic placement. For extra comfort, I added a couple of furniture pads to the bell (front/back) that give the clamp a little more width to grab, and should provide the bell a little more protection.

Everyone's needs are different. This is a very lightweight and easy solution for most mics, with the exception of real heavy ones, and would be versatile for many situations. I also like that it takes a lot less time to attach than the Kelly Shu. ... UTF8&psc=1" target="_blank" target="_blank" target="_blank" target="_blank" target="_blank" target="_blank
