    The AKG KM235/1 Stereo Microphone Bar is a small, versatile microphone stand accessory that can hold two microphone clips onto a single stand. It is 8.5" in total length, and it has three separate sections: The primary bar that screws onto a single american mic stand threading, and two pivotable arms. The two arms are very tight, and only move when you are adjusting them; there is no need to loosen and retighten the arm positions at all. They can pivot the full 360 degrees, given that the other arm doesn't get in the way.

    To attach the two mic clips, there is a special metal part that both screws into the arm, and screws into a mic clip. This way, you can adjust the depth of the special metal part, in case you have a mic clip that has either a shallow or deep threading inside of it. However, this setup has a lot of extra moving parts, threadings, and it can be a bit confusing to get the mic clips threaded correctly, and tightened in the correct position. You may have to buy or use a mic thread washer in order for the mic clip to be tightened in the correct position, and I know I have some problems setting it up properly. However, the special metal part is easily adjusted by hand, as the handle is very wide.

    The overall material of this microphone bar is very solid, all metal and no cheap plastic anywhere. It is aesthetically simple and clean, and for the most part, it functions just as intended. If you need to hold two mics in an a/b position for drum overheads, or use them for other stereo setups, this accessory can reduce the number of stands and clutter of your stereo setup. Be sure to try it out first, and see if it works with you mic clips.

    Center thread threads pretty nicely...but one of the end threads didn't tighten all the way into my Shure SM81's clip. I had to secure it by wrapping rubber band around the bottom and letting it tighten around the rubber.

    The adjustable-angle ends are very nice, and allow for multiple stereo recording techniques.

          Be warned, the grips on the screws on the bar they sent were made of plastic, not metal as shown in the picture. For the price, I'm quite happy with it. Adding some nylon washers allows mic clips to be unscrewed a bit easier.

                        This is well made and does what it is supposed to do. Because of its adjustability, by adding a short extension rod (such as the 7 inch piece from [On-Stage 7", 13" and 18" Microphone Boom Kit with Posi-Lok Clutch], also available from B&H) I can use this for a mid-side setup with two large-diaphragm condenser mics.

                              The ability to bring the 2 sides together is great when using short mics like Neuman KM-184s. I like this better than using a bar with a fixed width.

                                        This sturdy stereo mic bar mounts easily on typical mic stands, and securely holds my pair of Neumann 184s. No complaints so far.

                                          Well built and easy to ease. Fantastic addition to any recording studio.

                                          Center thread threads pretty nicely...but one of the end threads didn't tighten all the way into my Shure SM81's clip. I had to secure it by wrapping rubber band around the bottom and letting it tighten around the rubber.

                                          The adjustable-angle ends are very nice, and allow for multiple stereo recording techniques.

                                          The KM235/1 Stereo Bar works pretty well with my Nuemann KM184s, much better and more flexible than a cheaper one that I have. A simple product that does what it's supposed to do!

                                            The sound bar was very easy to use. Seems to be a quality product. We use it in our video lab for our morning news show.
                                            This could be used in any situation where you needed 2 mics.

                                                I bought one of these 9 years ago and I ended up stripping the center threading on a broken stand a few weeks back. I was happy to see this one is still around and still at a low price, so I picked another one up. why pay more when this is all you need?

                                                  It's great. Does just about everything I need to do. My mics are very heavy so it does bend a little, but overall it is a great product. I would recommend it to anyone.
