Question:

SM7B: How can I mount this microphone? Are there special stands available?

Answer:

For the SM7B to fasten tightly to a mic stand, there must be 7 mm (3/8") of external (male) thread exposed on the mic stand. If there is a retaining ring on the mic stand thread, remove it and this will typically expose about 10 mm of male thread. Any other surface with an according thread works as well.
