Triad-Orbit is challenged to place 30+ mics on 1 snare drum for a Mic Shootout.

The challenge presented to Triad-Orbit: Fit 31 mics surrounding a snare drum for a mic shootout to compile the information for an article about each mic's character and responsiveness. Previously ...done on a smaller scale with common mic stands, it had quickly became a sea of stands and booms, not to mention the issue of all of the legs vying for the same space under the snare.

We were asked to assist in hopes of making this project manageable. We devised a method of multiple mics per stand using our T1 bases, O2X dual booms, IO-Vector 5 point adapters, and M2 short stem/M3 long stem micro orbital adapters.

The result: 31 mics on 6 stands (actually 7, if you count one stand used only for cable management).

Those versed in the golden age of audio recording know George Starbird’s legendary Model No.180 studio boom stand has earned a place alongside the most revered vintage analog microphones, consoles ...
and outboard gear of the era. Starbird started Meletron Corporation in Los Angeles in 1939 to manufacture radio parts. He designed the Model 180 studio boom stand for large broadcast environments in the 1940s and recording studios soon discovered its unrivaled reach, range of motion and stability and adopted it as the large mic stand of choice. Meletron turned its focus to manufacturing pressure sensitive mechanical switches for the lucrative aeronautics, military and industrial markets in the early 1950s and ceased operations in 1970. Manley Laboratories, Inc., celebrated maker of professional studio and hifi audio equipment, purchased the tooling and trademark for the Model 180 in 1991 and produced an updated version of the Starbird in their California facility until 2010. Now in its third iteration, Starbird by Triad-Orbit (T-O SB-1) incorporates patented T-O innovation to impart new levels of performance, versatility and stability to the storied Model 180 platform. Most importantly, All Triad-Orbit Starbird stand base, boom swivel and clutch components retrofit to legacy Starbird stands.
