effortlessly transforms your photo tripod into a mic stand.
LutherD 11.05.2021
I have a bunch of these, to transform a range of photo tripods into mic stands.

I'm a field recordist, so I take my gear out to strange places sometimes, including rain forests, arctic tundra's, mountains, savannah, dunes, and cities off course.

normal mic stands are cumbersome in these type of places. and light mic stands can't really hold a stereo bar with two blimps. So the solution is to use photo tripods, which are much better suited to this rough terrain, are also a lot lighter (and when you need to hike 2 hours to get somewhere, that's important), and they easily fit into a bag that can travel with you on the plane. Their wider base (depending on which tripod), also provides stability.

But off course they come with the wrong thread, and these adaptors fix that. Using them I have put a range of blimps, stereobars with 2 blimps and other mike clamps on photo tripods. They fit together very well. Often not even loosening when you hike a while with the blimp attached to the tripod. (and using the quick release of a tripod, you can quickly seperate the blimp from the tripod).

I even use them on larger gorillapods to hold lightweight mics and hang them into trees.

Only problem might be that sometimes they fit a tad too well and you might have difficulty getting them off the quick release plate of the tripod again. but I have a leatherman or other pliers with me in those instances.

Does the job.

I'm using it to mount my Rode Blimp on a tripod. Works perfectly fine for that task.

Perfect adapter
Weldroid 09.02.2021
I needed a converter between my Manfrotto photo tripod (1/4") and a stereo microphone bar (3/8") and this little thing fit the bill perfectly. There is not much to such an object, but this piece delivered without a fault. Well machined piece of brass, nothing more, nothing less, did the job perfectly.

Does what it ought to
DrCheese 01.09.2020
This works well and allows you to attach a microphone clip with a standard 3/8 " fitting to a camera tripod (1/4 "). I find this useful for field recording where the bulk and weight of a studio mic stand makes it less portable. I use a cheap aluminium camera tripod instead.
