    Heavy Duty for the job, but a bit pricey for the simplicity of function

    Pass on this one

    One step above useless. From the picture, it seems like there are 6 mounting points for mics. The only ones that really work are the end two, on the swinging arms. The reason for this is hard to describe, but trust me, it's impossible to get microphones accurately mounted onto these points due to a design flaw.

    Also, the two end arms are just too far apart for most mic techniques - ORTF, NOS, and XY in the case of small mics. This bar is a backup for a good one, no more than that.

    The Worst Stereo Bar In Existence

    If you are doing stereo miking, spend the money and get a quality product. I bought one of these in a pinch and have found it to be most awkward. If you are looking to do ORTF or any other exacting stereo miking techniques, this thing is just a headache.

    Almost worthless

    I don't think any real though went into designing this product. What the other reviews say is true.

    I would think that, in designing a product, there would be a stage where you imagine it working, and then there would be a stage where you would see if it actually works. I'm not convinced that this stereo bar went through either of these stages. The holes in the bar are threaded, which means that when you put the screws through them, they end up in one place, and when you put the mic clip on it, it can only end up in one direction. The odds that this is the angle you want are 1 in 180. Which means the odds that both mics will be in the direction you want are 1 in 32,400 if I remember high school correctly. I have been wrestling with this thing, WCW-style, for years, and have not found a way to beat those odds.

    On the other hand, if you plan on using this 32,400 times, and you only need one usuable result from it, I'd say this is a sound purchase.
