Looks like a superclamp with a short extension pole. Can't tell which extension pole.

Might be the Matthews “12 or 16” baby extension

And a chrome super clamp. Just guessing.

My photo. Bogen/Manfrotto  Superclamp. Black, not chrome, just a shitty phone pic. 

Extension bar is a Photek that I picked up used @ a local photo store for about 10 bucks 20+ years ago. Each end has a 5/8" brass stud that fits the Superclamp.

One end has a 1/4" thread and the other a 3/8" thread.  I use a: https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/546490-REG/Manfrotto_014_38_014_38_Rapid_Adapter.html?sts=pi and 3/8">5/8" adapter to fit my shock mount...

After doing some research in old threads, I'm thinking about getting a Matthews Matthellini clamp: https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/161307-REG/Matthews_420110_Matthellini_Clamp_2.html

I'd envision using it primarily on the rail at Red Rocks or drink rails in clubs.  Does anyone have experience with a Matthellini (or Cardllini) they can share?

Also, will pretty much any of the Matthews/Manfrotto extension poles work with the Matthellini?

That thing built like a tank. It has a 5/8" male stud so it will accommodate either of the extension poles you mention.

Only issue is it was primarily designed to clamp to round bars/tubes. Don't know if I'd trust it on a flat surface unless I was running just actives sans extension pole...

It looks pretty sturdy: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PdwtYJokkHc

But of course I'd like to hear anyone's first-hand experience with it.

I've used it plenty of times to clamp to rails and flat surfaces. Clamping to flat surfaces always made me a bit nervous. I prefer flat jaws, but that is personal preference...

Oh sorry I didn't realize you'd used one.  So were you able to make it work on a flat surface with extension pole?  How sketchy was it?

Do they have wedge inserts available?

Sorry I can't answer directly, shy of playing with one at a H.wood Rigging/Sound/Vid supply.
But I am left with this,...
I like the look of parallel jaws. Those square, parallel, flange edges to the jaws ought to give a better grip than the SuperClamps. Those parallel jaws are a huge advantage there.

I've got one of those Matthellini clamps. It'll clamp to a flat surface and hold a good bit of weight. A couple of mics on an extension arm shouldn't phase it. I'd be cautious  putting too much torque on it when clamped to a flat surface, for instance using that extension arm as a boom.  I use mine for rigging strobes.

I can also confirm that it works great with flat surfaces.

Clamped a couple of times to bars/counters, tables, poles, lighting rails, stage lip (of var. dimensions) and never had a problem.
I'd only worry if a surface (like a bar/counter) was **not** perfectly flat but cone-shaped. But, in such a situation,, some wedges won't help you, either.

Make sure to get a Manfrotto swivel adapter (or equivalent), too - unless you already own one.

At a local venue one of the best spots to set up mics would be on a column that's nearly DFC and close to the stage, but setting up a stand there will not work because of the amount of traffic and people.  Some of us were talking about clamping to the column.  It's a rectangular column, I'd estimate 6" x 8".  Anyone have recommendations?

Heathen, this is a medium sized wood clamp attached to this 8-10 inch square column; then you can clamp to the clamp with just about anything!

When you get confused, listen to the music play!
