ISO: Spread omni mount/bar options
« on: December 28, 2021, 08:14:35 PM »
I'm moving to an nbob active setup and want a bar that I can use to spread between two Shure a53m doughnuts. In the past when using 4061's, I've connected a pair of  Shure transmitter antennas and extended them outward from each side of the stand, but what material could I use for the heavier, fullsize MG capsules & nbob colletes?


is there any off the shelf solution I should consider? I have a Manfrotto 154 Triple Bar  but am looking for something sleeker and light weight, preferably something that collapses or folds. Thanks for your help!

Check out the SmallRig15 mm camera rails and their mounting hardware. Can go 3 or 4 feet (and probably more) with no problem and they are pretty solid. You can unscrew the different section. I run 2 pairs of SDCs (AT 3031s, Studio Projects C4s) plus the mini omnis on the ends without issue (check my rig pics). Rocksuitcase turned me on to those.

+T's for the SmallRig recommendation.

This will really enhance my extendable DIY mounting solution. I love options that have the ability to extend to greater widths, but also allow for breakdown to a very small footprint.

That's a nice modular solution from SmallRig.  It's looks a lot like the system audBall put together for himself in DIY fashion, which is IMHO one of the best solutions I've seen.

Mine arrived this week. Very nice and durable.

I also picked up up a pair of M12 > 1/4" adapters for mounting at the rod ends.

When I was messing with spread omnis, I used a Manfrotto extension pole attached to my stand with a small clamp. Mic mounts screw to each end of the extension pole and you can adjust width as needed. I borrowed this idea from Jeff Mitchell.

smallrig is what I use.

we have a 4ft bar in 4x 1 ft sections. I love that it fits in my bag so I dont have to carry the monfrotto bar and have a conversation about it at the door.

we run nbobs and dpas on it. i dont recall if we've ever run the full 461's with the bodies and rycotes
