In most of these stands, there is a nylon ring (similar to a PVC plumbing connector). In cases where it may have been over-tightened in the past, the ring may lose its ability to "lock" onto the tube that runs through the middle. Disassemble the unit, and look for any cracks in the ring or the grip. Cracks in the grip can cause this to fail as well. Good luck! :)

    so do I replace the nylon ring ? what can help retighten the grip

    If there's a crack in either part, it may be impossible to find a replacement part. The only other option is to replace the whole unit.

Tip

Studio Recording at Home; Part Deux


This tip, continuing the series of Home Studio Recording, focuses on the hardest part of accomplishing this feat: Drums.

A big sound killer on 'budget' recordings is poorly recorded drums. There is a remedy, though. If you have one set of drum mics, buy another (or borrow. This will come into play later, though).

If you have clips that hold them on the drums, great. With the two sets, you'll only use half of the clips. For the rest of the mics, you'll want stands. You'll need one stand for each drum, plus six.

The dual mics serve this purpose: To capture the sound of the whole drum. One mic for the batter head (the side you hit), and one for the resonator (the side you don't).

For the batter head, you'll use the mic clips, and attach the mics as you normally would during playing. For the resonator head, use the stands to position the mic directly across the drum, making a straight line from the top of the drum to the bottom. This will help eliminate any voicing differences, which can be a real headache.

For the bass drum, you'll need 2 stands. Position the batter head mic close to the edge of the head on whatever side is easiest to access, but is also comfortable for your playing style.

Aim the mic so that it is pointed at a midway point between the center of the head and the edge. You can experiment with different spots, but be sure to NEVER let the mic be directly in front of the head.
For the bass resonator head (the front one that everybody sees), position the mic so that it is a mirror image of the batter mic. Once again, this gets rid of voicing problems.

You have just miked your drum kit, but what about cymbals? That's where the other 4 mics and stands come into play. Those 4 will take care of:

Hi-hats

Ride

Overheads

For the hi-hats, you'll want to position the mic about 3-5 inches from the top, and 2-4 inches from the side. It's best to come in from the outside of the kit, so that you'll pick up a bit of ambiance (the rest of the kit, as well as some natural reverb). Point the mic at a point close to midway between the bell and edge of the hats. Too close to the edge, and you'll get a sound similar to banging trash can lids together. Too close to the bell, and there's too much high-mid noise that CANNOT be reduced with an EQ.

For the ride, follow the same instructions for the hi-hats, but add about 2 inches to the distances. Aim the mic a little closer to the center as well, so that the mic will pick up any bell hits. A good spot is 1/4 the distance between the bell and edge.

Now for overheads. These are the mics that not only record the cymbals, but pick up the most ambiance.

NOTICE: I haven't already mentioned it, but you do NOT want to record with the drum kit up against a wall, nor do you want it in the center of the room. For best results, use the midway rule (as with placing mics on drums and cymbals, place the kit midway between the center of the room and the edge, preferably headed towards a corner). This will reduce unwanted echoes in the room due to sound reflection.

You will want to place the overheads about 1.5 feet above the highest cymbal. Space them out so that the entire kit is between them, but be sure to keep them evenly spaced. You'll want to use the snare as a midway marker for the placement of overhead mics, since it is your loudest drum, and more likely to be picked up in the overheads than any other drum. This will also keep the snare panned center (you'll be panning the drums out to the left and right later on the mixer, but the snare and bass stay center).

These are some guidelines for setting up mics for recording drums at home. I hope that helps, and stay tuned for Part Trés of Home Studio Recording.

Does any one make a carry bag or soft case for transporting the ProLine PL-400. The stand measures around 54" x 16" x (7-8)". I would like to have a case that I can use when I go to a hotel...


I have never seen a carrying case for these offered anyplace... they can be a pain to handle. You MIGHT try to get someone to make a heavy duty cardboard box to carry it in. These are a heavy duty stand... making almost any hard case would triple the weight. They custom make cases for mixers but that type would weigh about 50 pounds for the case alone. If I were making one, I would do it something like the mic/speaker stand cases are with a zipper down the opening. Maybe use canvas... but DO use a heavy zipper... getting the "ears" in and out of a duffle bag would certainly be frustrating to the max.

I have the PL400 stand and cannot open it. there is the long pin but it won't budge, Can you help


The pins can be sticky. You squeeze the pin extending out upward toward the top cross member to release the catch. I have one of these and they work nice. The pin (cushioned) that extends out is a handle that moves in a slot that pulls a rod through the tube to pull the index pin at the disk with the slots in it. These work easy but pull back on the pin before putting any force to open the unit.

Pls, i will like to know how i can get a pro sound with my beringer b2pro mic with my xenyx 1204usb mixer. i mean mic settings


The mic will give very good sound assuming you put it in a studio environment and have no speakers being driven by it that the mic can "hear" or it will feedback instantly.

Your studio should have proper sound deadening on the walls ceiling and floor. There is a lot of information on the web about setting up a studio. Search for it with google. The more studio-like the environment, the more like pro sound you will get. You will NOT get pro-sound in a bare garage or a room in a house without handling the sound reflections in the room. These mics hear EVERYTHING... they are a high quality mic.

Proline Piano Keyboard Stand Assembly Hi, I just bought a Proline piano stand for an electronic keyboard, and the first step on the assembly directions is to move the clutch to the middle position....


Normally on my stand like this you PULL the knob outward (not turn it) to disengage the pin from the plate with the holes in it... Works quite well and the stand is moree stable than many.

Korg Kaoss Pad 3 1/4" mic input is shot, need repacement


If you can unsolder the jack, take it to any good electronics supplier and they should be able to sell you a replacement. The manufacturer is not as important as the pin configuration and the height it stands from the surface of the circuit board.

Yamaha Keyboard Microphone Not Working


Hi Simon. Has the cable to your Mike been trapped under the stand, trodden on etc. Could be a faulty plug or even Mike/switch. Did the Mike ever crackle under use?

Have you another Mike and lead to try?

Sorry for the obvious questions but I have seen this happen before and it was a faulty lead...
