The PG42 shock mount does not fit a standard U.S. mic stand that has a 5/8"-27 male thread. Please advise.
PG27, PG27-USB, PG42 and PG42-USB: The stand adapter and the shock mount mic holder are shipped with an European mic stand adapter fastened into the 5/8"-27 internal thread. This adapter changes the size of the threaded hole. With the European adapter installed, the shock mount mic holder will not fit a U.S. mic stand.
The Euro stand adapter has two slots on either side of the fitting. A U.S. nickel (5 cent coin) will fit the slots and allow easy removal of the adapter. A large screwdriver may also work. Once the adapter is removed, the 5/8"-27 female thread size will be restored.
