New Music Gear Monday: The X-Clip Dual Mic Holder

The Shure SM57 may be the greatest single mic ever invented for the snare and electric guitar amps, but sometimes it's just not enough to capture the tone you want. In those cases, many times a small capsule condenser mic is used to fill out the sound. The biggest problem in that scenario is being able to mount the two mics close together, which usually ends up with the two mics being taped together.

Now the tape job is in the past thanks to the inventive new X-Clip dual microphone mount.

The X-Clip is just that - a clip designed to fit around an SM57 or similarly shaped microphone that then acts as a holder for a small diaphragm condenser like an AKG 451.

It's ingenious, it eliminates the tape, and it keeps the mics perfectly in phase with ease. What more can you ask for?

With the X-Clip you can all but eliminate phase distortion by keeping the capsules perfectly aligned with each other, something that's usually pretty difficult when using two mic stands or with the two mics taped together.

A single X-Clip is priced at $19.95, but a Studio Bundle of 3 is currently priced at $49.95. Find out more at
