The Auray Universal Microphone Pistol Grip is a handheld grip that features an ergonomic cushioned handle. This grip is great in "run & gun" situations in which a boom pole would be cumbersome, and in video scenarios in which the cameraman is also responsible for audio recording. The grip can be held with one hand, as opposed to a boom pole which requires two. It also provides the option of being able to record audio from a different direction than the camera is pointing, an advantage over camera mounting the mic. Furthermore, having the mic mounted off the camera prevents it from picking up motor noise from the lens focusing.

In addition, the grip features standard 3/8" threads on both ends. This allows you to attach your shotgun mic (with shockmount) to one end of the grip and mount the other end to a boom pole. This gives you the flexibility of being able to quickly detach the pistol grip and the attached shotgun mic from the boom, an option that can come in handy for entering areas that are too small for a boom pole.

    The hand grip does exactly what it's supposed to, combined with a shock mount it's very nice to have in tight spaces. Even when I'm not using it, I attach it to the pole with the mic still on it for quick use.

          Comments about Auray Universal Microphone Pistol Grip:

          I put a flash shoe oh this grip and have my assistant hold this for remote flash. They can follow the subject easier and more precisely. They also don't cover up part of the flash while doing so.

            Works great...just make sure the screw fits your equipment. Once I got all the parts fitting together with each other it was a delight to use. I use it with Rycote Shock Mount.

                  Works like a champ. I connect this to a Rode NT-G2. You put the mic into the mike holder provided with the mic, and then screw this into the bottom of the mic holder. Works great.

                  I use this I make each for my H4N to replace the handle that came with the kit. This handle reduces the noise if you're adjusting your grip.

                    Picked this up to use for Foley, field recording and audio interviews. The grip works great. Comfortable to hold and the cushioned grip prevents any accidental finger movement from being picked up by the mic. Exactly what I was looking for, couldn't be happier with it.

                      Comments about Auray Universal Microphone Pistol Grip:

                      A good basic grip for a handheld microphone. I'm using it with a Pearstone shock mount for a Sennheiser MKE 600.

                      It's a little expensive for what it is but it's solidly built.

                      In addition to the shock mount, I'm using it as an extender on my desktop microphone stand to give it extended reach.

                        Gets the job done. Wanted a pistol-grip style intially, but found this does the job just as well. Minimal transfer.

                                I actually use this as a handle for an off camera flash which allows an assistant to hold and follow a moving object that I'm shooting. The male and female threads on either end are a good design, allowing more rigging options.

                                    Didn't end up working well because the screw was too long and ended up going through the shock mount and touching the MK66 barrel. Used some cardboard to add distance, but it's not a great workaround.

                                      Good grip for shotgun mics, solid and comfortable. Pretty basic product but it's all you need.

                                        This little guy is a great way to use your shotgun as a mini-boom. It isolates the microphone and shock mount from hand rubbing noise and is easy on the wrist. All in all, a great buy.

                                            Great hand grip, but beauty of this is that it attaches to end of boompole. This allows for a bit more reach, and flexibility in quickly going to hand-held situation.

                                            Very simple easy to use hand grip for my shotgun mic. It does have an attachment point at the bottom, but no cable path. The padding & shape I find more comfortable than the other pistol grips.

                                                The hand grip does exactly what it's supposed to, combined with a shock mount it's very nice to have in tight spaces. Even when I'm not using it, I attach it to the pole with the mic still on it for quick use.

                                                  I got this through an audio kit that I purchased, I don't use it but it is handy to have incase for whatever reason i need to hand hold the mic.
