Hard to find piece that is a must have!!
I bought my wife a Shure Super 55 mic and an Ultimate Support Love and Hate Mic stand for her birthday. They look awesome together, but the neck of the mic stand protrudes out so much that you can't connect the XLR cable to the microphone. This piece gives just enough height to be able to fit the XLR cable. Also not having to constantly thread and unthread the microphone is a big bonus!
