I recently got a Rowi 76 clamp and need a thread adapter so I can use it with my shure donut.  Can any point me in the right directions for what is commonly used.  TIA

I need a 5/8 male like one a windtech c clamp so doesn't look like that will work.

So, if your clamp is 5/8th (the same as the windtech), and the Donut is 5/8ths... Is it a different thread count? What's the stiff?

No those Rowi's have either a 3/8 or a 1/4 on them.  So you need either one of these.  I'm pretty sure it's 1/4 though.

Check aournd the B&H site...I bought another version  of these for $2 not too long ago, but it looks like those are backordered now.

HINT:  If you order these, get 3 or 4 extra's of the 3/8 > 5/8 and 1 or 2 of the 1/4 to 5/8.  You'll find them handy in the future, I promise.

I think the 76 uses either a 1/4" or 3/8" thread, therefor the need for an adapter.

ah, gotcha, the windtech remark threw me for a loop.

Technically, as an engineer, that's an impossible adapter Jon unless you're that artist...what's his name...Escher?  LOL.  But we know what you meant.  ;)

Does anyone else find the Rowi 76 hard to get snug when clamping to a round surface.  Was thinking of adding a notch on mine. 

edit:  oh and some clamp pr0n for you guys


La zona Rosa - perfect steel pillar DFC @ FOH


Old one from Antone's  THis one involves 2 superclamps (one not pictured), 8" extension, some random K&M bar, vert bar and regular k&m clamp.  I just use my rowi 103 now.
