Thanks Tim!

I have some of these bookmarked but this thread get's everything in one spot.  Is there any chance you could include the thread topic title along with the link as a reminder which link is which thread?  I realize the topic title may not really distinguish subjects or clamps discussed but it's better than nothing.  Here's another one:

Nice work Tim :)

Thanks, Bean. I've been bringing home the heat for quite a few years/shows thanks to where I set up, courtesy of a few clamps.

Like real estate, Location is everything.

I know there is a ts.com thread titled "balcony clamping" or similar that was a great resource, but I can't find it. Links?

any reason you're making each link a sep er ate post?

while it's nice to have these all in one thread it would be easier for me to follow/find useful information if you edited your first post to include all of the links rather than having to scroll through pages of posts containg one link per post

Good idea. I was adding them stream of conciousness. I can consolidate when I get a little down-time.


ETA: Done.

I'm addicted to getting my mics in the "spot"... :laugh:


Me too ;D My last show, where I have pretty much free reign of the place, I went 10' FOB/DFC, and was told to "move back a little" :) So I did. I moved back about 5 ft at MOST :P ;D I was STILL in da sweet spot, and my Space Panda/Papadosio recordings all SMOKE because of it. Its very important for me to get nice and dead center, and in 90% of the time, thats where I record from. And if it helps me pull a SICKASS recording, then Im going to keep trying to get FOB/DFC, unless told otherwise :)

Started hanging my Superclamp / 099b / Quickrelease combo at the Tractor Tavern, a 350 capacity club here in Seattle.  After the Mickey show, the local taping crew has decided we should do a permanent hang with a dedicated set of cables back to the "Taper Section" in the back booth by the board. 20' back DFC. Plan on swapping the Superclamp for a Grid Clamp with Baby Pin, so that it would be more secure.

 ;D

http://www.archive.org/details/mhb2011-12-01.scoobiesnax.flac16 was recorded this way, got in day before to hang rig and run cables.

Stand? Yeah there's one in my trunk. Don't use it.

I should have taken a photo last Wed. Had a 'figure it out there' type clamp situation which worked out great- low profile, looked purpose designed and down right 'rakish'.  It was a spur of the moment visit to a second recording gig about halfway through the show.  I semi-configured in the lot, threw a few clamps and an extra extension in cargo pants pockets, talked my way in past the doorman and rapidly clamped to an angled staircase railing that decends from the soundboard down into a pit dance floor area between the SBD and stage. The quick, effortless and streamlined setup prompted a silent, smiling thumbs-up from an otherwise dour looking sound guy.  Unfortunately though I missed a guest apperance by Billy Gibbons earlier in the set.

Teh clampage: Adorama superclamp knockoff holding two 20" heat shrink covered DIY threaded rod extensions screwed together and supporting a Moke-bar with upside down AT shocks suspended beneath it.  The cool part? With the rig extending perpendicular the angled handrail, it placed the mics both up a few feet over the head level of those on the floor, as well as out and forward from the raised barstool seating along the railing to either side of the stair case and SBD.  The knuckles on the shocks hanging from below bar let me angle the mics upwards a bit toward the hanging line array PA and made the thing look custom designed for that specific scenario.  Mics centered in the room right were I wanted them.  Scoped, configured, wired and rolling in under a minute 30 seconds.  Cool.
