    It's early and I'm a bit too lazy to take a close-up photo of my 'riser' but I'm actually using two small C-clamps to secure the thing' to my desk until I'm certain that's where I want it. Then I will do the most sacrilegious thing' a podcaster would ever consider. Yes you guessed it, I will actually drill holes!

    I am a fan of the Heil PL2T. I also have the 12" riser for it but it comes with a clamp if you prefer not to drill. I like Heil aesthetically since the springs are hidden

    Okay fine, blame the guy in the rat suit for preferring the retro look of the original RCA Boom-Arm. Actually it's the extended reach that really comes in handy and the adjustability feature is just another added perk.

    Sidebar: I just received the O.C. White Green-Light (magnifier) with its own boom-arm so now my studio is starting to look like a bunch of Cranes landed.

    Actually looked at that OC arm I may have to get one given my desk configuration. It would make it much easier to swing over my desk monitors. I wonder if they have a wall mount?

    They do have a wall mount but the surface has to be strong to handle the weight and the torsion. I’ll post some pics of my room so you may see the added riser.

    I have mine c-clamped to the desk to make sure I like the placement before drilling those small little holes that everyone is afraid of. It's been held down that way for about two months so I guess it's good to go.

    Thanks for the link Dan... I also see they have a riser with a built-in XLR connection...very cool...

    I did bite the bullet and drill holes in my desk. It's an old desk so no harm... I think could have chosen a better location but it works OK.

    The one you saw was the 29-inch version which why I exchanged it for the 45-inch. The 45-inched' isn't sold as a bundle, or at least yet. I ended up buying the arm and 15-inch feed-through riser separately.

    BTW, if you decide to use the XLR feed-through, you will have to add your own XLR connector.

    Hello Tommy,
    Glad to see that someone dusted off this old thread as this is an area where many of us go crazy! Meaning, after a while it's just fun to try something new and the microphone lovefest is hard to avoid.

    Earlier today I had my finger on the trigger for a new Sennheiser MKH 416 but my Sweetwater sales rep already left for the day. To date, I have tried at least a dozen mic's since I started this hobby but be only one I've kept is the Electro-Voice RE20. This microphone works very well with my voice and my microphone preamp. I suspect it would even sound better if I added a Fethead or Cloudlifter and I'm sure I'll end up with either one of those fairly soon.

    The Sennheiser recommended by Mike is simply an alternative that I would like to try, so that too may find its way into my studio.
