The black 23560 Microphone Bar with 5/8" Locking Screws from K&M is a steel bar with six knurled handles for holding microphones. The center of the bar is designed with a 5/8" thread for mounting on a standard microphone stand. Additionally, the bar has six slits; each slit has a knurled screw with a 5/8" thread to attach the microphone, which can be adjusted variably and placed in the desired position on the bar. If six microphones are not used at the same time, the extra knurled screw can be removed from the slits.

    23560 Microphone Bar with 5/8" Locking Screws (Black) is rated 2.8 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good mic bar — but you've got to know how to use it! I almost sent this back (as some have said they did) until I realized that you have to REMOVE the six black plastic knobs (kind of hard to do the first time; may require pliers) and mount your mics with the bar turned "upside down" (smooth flat side DOWN, side rails facing up, if that makes sense). �Otherwise, no matter how hard you tighten the six metal & plastic knob fasteners, it will be too loose. �And, again, the removable knobs were SO tight that I thought they were epoxied on or something. In the end, I was able to mount three pairs of mics just fine, including heavy Rode NTR ribbon mics. �It all felt secure and I hope to use this K&M mic bar for years to come.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Mic mounts don't fit! I read the reviews on here, but I didn't think it would have an effect on my mics. I was wrong and my mic mounts don't fit at all. I am returning my item, and I have to pay an $11 shipping fee. I suppose I could stick rubber washers underneath my mic holders, but I rather just get a proper AB bar.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent value Very well built, strong, lite. Very reasonable price. Only wish the locking screws were shorter -- most of my shock mounts are deep enough to lock down, but, say, a Shure mic clip is too shallow for the screws to grip the bar.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from not compatible with all mounts. poorly designed lock screws. This bar is annoying. The stamped steel construction is fine and it seems well manufactured, just poorly engineered. The lock screws will fall out without a lock nut (during storage and transport), but when you put on a lock nut, you can't tighten down the lock screw to the bar. So that doesn't work. You'll have to carry an extra bag for the lock screws and be sure that your mic mounts are compatible. This is an important point. In order to succeed with this bar, your mic mounts must have deep enough thread to allow the lock screw to press against the opposite side of the bar. Some of the mounts I have from Schoeps, Neumann, AKG, and Rycote will work but at least a two different varieties (1 stock, 1 shockmount) from Shure simply bottom out and are left spinning. That was particularly disappointing to me because I had planned on using an array with Shure A53M shockmounts. To use this relatively inexpensive bar for my intentions is going to require the purchase of several hundred dollars worth of new mounts. The system needs to be re-engineered. This product is a little disappointing coming from K&M which usually has pretty good products.
