We're running out of money fast, and we were wondering how necessary a stand would be to the recording process with that microphone.


Those mics are to record overhead so you can put them anywhere in the room. On a table or chair would do I suppose. Even then a stand costs like $10..

So you can't just set it on a table or something? I know it's kinda lame, but the less money we have to spend, the better.

Get off this damn forum and play your damn guitar.

use a hand wt about 5 fingers, teach the mic how to levitate, or put the mic on the floor and have ur singer lay on the floor along side of it and yell into it.

You forgot the classic "Strap it to a midget's forehead" technique. Handy for mic'ing halfstacks.

I've seen some pretty hilarious 'cost-efficient' ways to use a mic without a stand. In high school, a friend of mine had me come over to lay down some guitar tracks for their demo. They duct taped the mic cable to the ceiling and had the mic hanging down in the middle of the room to capture everything into a cheap little 4-track cassette recorder.

I was actuall thinking of doing that. I mean, hanging the mic from the ceiling.

We decided against buying anything yet though, we're waiting until we have enough money to buy everything we need.
