      If you want to use any standard lighting stand as a mic or stereo mic bar / holder, you need this... It will change the 1/4-20 male threaded head of mount to 5/8-27 male American mic thread... With the cost of dedicated mic masts going into the hundreds of dollars, this can save you a ton of money, and it works great... For smaller pencil mics, all you need is a light duty lighting stand... For larger mics or pairs of larger mics, go with a heavier duty lighting stand... Believe me, lots of recording engineers do this... It's a great money-saving tip!... (m.)

      Use this for putting a mic boom arm on a standard camera tripod. It does the job but has been shedding metal shavings throughout use -- so at the end of the day it looks like the tripod head is covered in glitter. Would be good if that didn't happen.

          Comments about WindTech M-7 Thread Adapter:

          I needed an adapter to go from a small tripod with a camera mount to my standard mic clip. after several phone calls locally, I finally had the correct details for a web search, which was now necessary because no one locally heard of such an adapter. But B&H had them and many more. I'll check her first next time.

            While a very simple product for matching the 5/8" female thread on a microphone clamp to a 1/4" tripod male thread, I searched the internet for a supplier. I should not have been surprised that the only supplier that I could find that had it was B&H.

                      Purchased microphone holder that was 5/8"-27. All the stands and clamps I have are for 1/4"-20 for cameras. This saved me the money of buying stands and clamps for the microphone.

                                I use this product to change a 13 foot light stand in to a mic stand. It works perfectly. The threading is great and can be easily manipulated with the use of a quarter. This is the key to having a super tall mic stand with out spending too much money on overpriced stands.

                                        I have numerous Camera tripods and wanted to make sure the 3 grand-kids each got a mike stand. Perfectly converts a normal tripod to hold a mike with normal mike stand clip. Would be fine for room recording since tripods are study. It's a "just in case" item and worked as advertised.
