I feel ya Pete!  That is perhaps the best part, changing ics is a breeze and foolproof.

We have a HUGE drum kit here in the studio now on a client's session (9 toms +).  The LL2200 is merely holding a CS-1 back about 6 feet looking down on the kit for "overall" sound.

Because it is back a bit, the Xtra Booms were of no other use, so we took them off (easily) and attached them to other, lesser stands, and it was helped tremendously.

For example, the bass drum hole is at the bottom, and no stand would do properly on its own...but a normal short stand (AKG, already there holding the 47 fet for the "outside mic") with the Xtra Boom attached perpendicular to and about 3 inches from the floor, pointed straight in, was perfect for the "inside mic."

This thing has so many uses.

I can not, for the life of me, understand why BD heads often have the hole down so low--even the ones that are manufactured with the hole pre-cut.  The Xtra Boom thing is a great idea.

That's so the low notes can get out of the drum. HTH

Back when I was first sending prototypes to Fletcher, I was surprised when he told me that it was the best kick mic holder ever, (and that I would never see it again). A real "Duh" moment for me.

It never dawned on me that Xtra

That's the Royer SF-12 up top.


That just looks scary to me--I would not feel comfortable putting an expensive mic on a stand extended that long without sandbagging the base.  Smile

From what I remember seeing the size of the base of those stands, it just looks like an accident waiting to happen. But then again, I am speaking without the benefit of first hand experience with actually using one.

First of all, that is not a 2200 in the photo, it is a MicKing
