I like the InVision mounts, but the best one I have is one that came with an obscure Pearl stereo mic. The part that attaches to the stand has a ball-and-socket mount that lets you instantly point the mic in almost any direction and lock it securely in that position. I don't think I've ever seen another one quite like it.

K&M (who else?) makes an accessory that does just that. It goes between a normal mic clip and the stand and has a lockable ball joint. :thumbup:

K&M 19695-300

Doesn't save you from a crap mic clip tho...

Of course they would! Neat. Does it rotate in any direction or just up and down within the slot?

They are a bit limited to the slot direction but they add a good bit of flexibility to the setup... the ball part spins freely tho. I think it was €15 and well worth the money.

And if you’re looking for excellent mic stands and accessories, it’s hard to beat Triad Orbit http://www.triad-orbit.com - absolutely astounding quality and a price to go with it.

I took the plunge and have been well pleased, but I’m poorer for it!

Absolutely -- properly engineered to do exactly what they're supposed to and last a lifetime. I am really, really impressed with them.... but they do cost as much as something that's very expensive... :D

Been away teaching our ex-colonial friends what prog rock is really about (and how to pronounce 'aluminium'!) :lol:

In return I have a cowboy hat and a new habit of looking for rattlesnakes as I walk. Both will go down well in Sheffield town centre.

SM57, MD421... the bigger problem is gonna be to crouch every time you want to sing to the sax mic on stage :lol:

There's really no 'best'. Any mic on the day will give a subjectively 'better' result than any other. I've recorded vocals and saxes with just about every mic I own at one time or another. What's your budget?

MD 421 :thumbup:

Perfect for Sax and also great vor vocals (it was the No.1 choice, I think, before the SM58 came along).

Yes, several times - it's very interesting and goes back to the Neumann year dot (1928).

But it's best to give them a ring first to let them know when you wanty to come - main number is:- 00-49-36649-88226.
