How do I buy mic stands online without knowing if they'll fit the little holder thing that came with my mic?

Go to solution Solved by Moonzy,

is this it?

behringer | C-4 | Behringer 2 Matched Studio Condenser Microphones

 

i cant see the bottom of the mic itself so i cant tell what's the mount there, but judging from the bar it seems to be the normal stuffs

yours seems to be 1/4 judging from the photo, while the bar is probably 5/8"

Okay so this is a very stupid question.

I bought a pair of behringer c4s as a pair of do-it-all mics for myself (I had planned to go and sample a bunch of instruments during the summer holidays last year when I bought it in spring last year, but then the pandemic happened and I never did that).

 

They came with a nice case and a plastic thing that comes between the mic and the stand (I don't know what it's called). I wanted to buy a stand for a long time, but since everything's under lockdown all the time, I can't go to a shop and make sure my mics fit on whatever stand I wanna buy, since no shops are open. 

 

So if I wanna buy a stand online, how do I make sure my mics fit on it?

If it has a screw-thread, then I believe those are reasonably standard, so if you buy a mic stand which accepts screw-threads of the same size it will work.

Thanks for reading all this by the way!

By the way, my desktop is a docked laptop. Get over it, No seriously, I have an exterrnal monitor, keyboard, mouse, headset, ethernet and cooling fans all connected. Using it feels no different to a desktop, it works for several hours if the power goes out, and disconnecting just a few cables gives me something I can take on the go. There's enough power for all games I play and it even copes with basic (and some not-so-basic) video editing. Give it a go - you might just love it.

That reminds me: none of the stands I could find online had screw threads, while the mic holder things (I still don't know their name) have screw threading. The reason I asked the original question (apart from the problem I just stated) is that I found out online that there are multiple sized for this screw-threading with no easy way for me to measure it, and for some reason, no mic manufacturer lists this along with other specifications.

My PCs: Desky | Beddie | Miney | Benchie

Things I need help with: (nothing at the moment)

Spoiler

none atm

I hate Intel's pricing, Ryzen's weird quirks, Nvidia's pricing, and Radeon GPUs in general

Spoiler

Products I like:

Spoiler

Sony Xperia Z1 / Z2 / 10 ii, Asus Strix 970 / 1070, Samsung SSD, WD HDD, Corsair PSUs (AX, RM, CX(grey)), GeForce GPU, NZXT N450/S340, be quiet! Coolers, G.Skill Trident RAM, Logitech M525, Logitech G440, Razer Deathadder Elite

Products I hate:

Spoiler

Xperia Z3, XiaoMi 5c, Radeon GPUs, Razer Audio Products, any bloatwares

Companies I absolutely adore: (and hope it stays that way)

Spoiler

be quiet! - sent me AM4 mounting for my DRP3 even though it's way past the timeframe stated, no questions asked

Corsair - very good RMA experience, absolutely recommend

Companies I hate:

Spoiler

Nvidia, Intel, Apple, TMT (Thundermatch, a retailer)

Personal Blacklisted Companies:

Spoiler

Acer: shit tier quality products, shit tier customer service thus far, they "tried" to solve my issue but they arent really doing anything but delaying and delaying. (on-going case since July)

Gigabyte: horrible customer service (gigabyte had literally 0 customer service, asked me to go to retailer with NO WAY to email them about a question) but at least they fixed my shit in ONE MONTH (would probably take me 1 hour to fix if they let me email them)

XiaoMi Phones: built like a tank but the software is buggy as all hell

Seagate HDD: had too many dead seagate drives

Kingston SSD: 300V controller swap thingy

Razer (except their mouse)

Remember, just because I had good/bad experiences with these companies/product, doesn't mean you will have similar experiences too. I would still recommend these products if they made sense for your needs, but I'll add a disclaimer of my experience if it's relevant. Feel free to DM me asking why they are where they are.

Thank you so much! Now I just have to find a stand with 1/4" threading (literally every stand I saw on the first two pages of Amazon had no threading)

it might be a 3/8 for the middle of the bar, you can tell easily if you have it on hand

I do have it on hand, but I don't really know what fhe number actually means (what is 5/8" long? Or wide? What dimension are we talking about? Can I measure it with a ruler? And a million other questions I can't really find an answer to).

Thanks! Now I know what I'm doing tomorrow (it's 12 AM right now and I should be completing my sleep instead of obsessing over stuff I don't even have yet)

It's 5/8 in the middle with a pre-installed 3/8 adapter.
Source : I have two C2 stereosets with the same bar.

OP there are basically only two mic sizes and I guarantee that every mic stand you were looking at is threaded once you remove the mic clip. It's not a big deal, you mic came with the adapter.
