bassonstageLots of journeyman (and women) players have gotten to gigs and found that they need to mic the bass unexpectedly. The old Bluegrass trick is to slip a mic into a gym sock, and drop it behind the tailpiece against the body. Sure, it works, but it's not exactly hi-fi!

For several years, we have imported a very nice clamp-on mic boom from the U.K., but it is sophisticated and made of high-end, fancy (expensive!) materials, so it can be a bit dear for those who mostly play for fun and beer money. So a less expensive option was needed. And we've found it for you.

Ve Leen Music in Sweden has come up with a simple bracket, called the "BassOnStage" - and they sell it (in Sweden) along with a gooseneck. You can order it from them direct. But they supply it with Euro mic threads; you'll need to get adapters to use it with mic clips in the USA. You'll also deal with international shipping, payments, etc.

Gollihur Music to the rescue! We've purchased a bunch of the custom brackets that they made up, and sourced other parts to complete the kit here in the USA. We even include TWO gooseneck options, and a quality rubberized mic clip. So you get a complete, expanded setup, shipped from the USA, with no complications or surprises.

Here's how it works: You get a specially-made bracket that mounts to the back of the tailpiece, and has a threaded post on it to accommodate a microphone clip or gooseneck. You can mount the clip right to the clamp for one mic position, or add on one of two included goosenecks (6-inch and 12-inch) to accommodate the type of mic'ing you would like to do. All of the most common mic positions are supported by this flexibility.

The longer (12") gooseneck is demonstrated in the photo in the upper right. Below, the photo on the left is the shorter (6") gooseneck, and the photo on the right shows the mic clip mounted directly to the bracket. Obviously, the goosenecks are flexible and can be moved around to place the mic where you want it.


The unit is simple to use, reasonably lightweight*, and mounts easily with no tools or modification on typical "tulip" style straight tailpieces (like you'd commonly find on a Kay or Engelhardt, as the ones in the photos.) It is a less expensive alternative to a higher-tech unit like the H-Clamp (which we also sell) and a more reliable, less "hack" option than dropping a SM-57 in a sock and wedging it behind the tailpiece.

In our exclusive package, you get:
  • The custom-made bracket, which includes mounting hardware and a foam backing against the tailpiece to prevent vibration/noise
  • A thread adapter to adapt the threads on the bracket to US-spec
  • A quality 6" black gooseneck extension
  • A quality 12" black gooseneck extension
  • A quality, name-brand black rubberized plastic mic clip, compatible with most SM57-SM58 style microphones (as shown in photos above)

The goosenecks and the adapter use a standard 5/8" BSW mic stand thread, so you may use most any common mic clip/cradle/holder, as needed for your application.
