For a flexible arm second mic option this is like what I use

And the mic holder

I swear I've tried them all. Here's what we're currently using to support a guitar mic without using a second complete stand...

The combo is light, strong and simple.

I agree it looks to be a better simpler solution than the one I posted

You might want to look at Triad-Orbit as an option. Their stands are sturdy with a low center of gravity and secure (read heavy). They have two arm boom options (O2 and O2X). I got one right after a gig where the sound guy was striking the stage right after the gig and accidentally knocked one of the cheaper aluminum stands over crashing into my Taylor 614ce and put a 9" crack down the side. The cost to repair would have covered the price of the stand.

They are pricey, but pro players use and love them, and I'm not giving mine up. Here's a pic of Ricky Skaggs and Ed Sheeran using the two arm boom.

These 'Kids' do a pretty good job with just one mic! And that's for two guitars and two vocals!

Thanks for all the help and advice. I guess I better bookmark this topic too.

Hey pieterh, Hallå, Hur mår du?

Did I do that right?

That's pretty much exhausts my knowledge of Swedish.
(Except for some curse words I picked up.)

My In-laws were both born in Sweden and my wife grew up in a house where half the extended family spoke it.

Default micing

I routinely use one mike stand and 2 mikes, with an adjustable gooseneck for the instrument mike. This has never caused me a problem and I am sold on it.

Yes, I have used a single condenser mike and it makes a better show than it does a sound. They can make a good sound, but balancing everything is something else.

Hej, jag mår bra, tack!

Hallå is more often used as a way of getting attention, can sound a bit abrupt to a non-Swede (I find it a bit of a patronising way of getting someone’s attention) and can have a negative inflection (as in “hello, what is going on here...?). The usual way of saying hello or hi is more or less the same as American English, ie “hey!”.

Great to hear about your link with Sweden. Hälsa dina svärföräldrar från mig (say hi to the in-laws from me!).

Bluegrass bands use the single large diaphragm
condensors a lot . It's a "traditional" thing.
They sound great. I have used one in intimate
settings. It works great. in loud bars forget it.

My apologies to James Taylor. I actually meant to post the link you posted. Didn’t expect somebody would’ve overdubbed the soundtrack.

Oh well...

I knew the soundtrack was wrong because I saw this on the news when it was news.
The point about the bad single mic placement was still not missed, though.

I remember thinking when I first saw the report, Wow, I didn't think that he had become that shy.

Kudos to him. He didnt throw a hissy fit or go all diva...He dealt with it and got down to the job of performing. I respect that.
