I put this together this afternoon. Goofy lookin' but effective. Battery clips are the answer for the Karma Micros!

Total cost for clips & copper wire: $7.88.

Does it count if I was already drinking?

Hahaha, nice DIY mic mount. So what the heck do those micros actually look like? I've been hearing everybody say how they've had to come up with their own ways of mounting them.

They have a great "stealth" factor. Extremely sensitive, and damn near unnoticeable. Plug one on the end of a cable, leave it lying around, and record your friends covertly...

I have four of those little suckers, and have been using them almost exclusively on my new project. I love the way they make my acoustic guitar sound, and it really doesn't matter what mic I use on my voice. ::sigh:: Hey...you can't go wrong spending $20 on four mics!

I've been looking for a better way to X/Y them than the clothespin and duct tape method. Perhaps I'll give your invention a try!

Tadpui, go here and have a look and a read.

I also have the K6 ribbon I mentioned in the review and love them all. I have 4 of the K-Micro as well. An absolutely killer mic with the higher spl they have now.

Herb, that is one hell of a mic mount.
