Get Reliable and Repeatable Microphone Positioning Every Time!

Behind the Spacebar SB-30 lies the same devotion to pristine audio that drives Grace Design's incredibly transparent preamplifiers and signal processors. The Spacebar SB-30 is not your typical stereo miking tool! Rather, it is an ultra-precise, professional instrument for setting microphone position patterns and angles. Engraved markings give you the ability to measure the capsule spacing, angle of incidence, and rotation around the x-axis of two microphones so that you can re-create the same conditions over again. Microphone placement has never been as precise or easy to reproduce as it is with the Spacebar SB-30.

  • Get the best stereo from your microphone setup

Precision microphone positioning made simple, reliable, and repeatable
With measurements running as fine as 5 degrees of rotation and 5mm of horizontal adjustment, you can achieve absolutely precise microphone placements. The white-on-black measurement readouts provide easy-to-read markings for your records so that re-creating exact setups is not only possible but also headache-free.

Get the best stereo from your microphone setup
Based on the characteristics of your microphones and formulas grounded in audiology and acoustic physics, there are several methods to achieving advanced stereo microphone placement that require the kind of precision measurements that the Spacebar SB-30 can deliver.

This is the one I've been looking for

I got tired of using those cheap pieces of junk that most stereo bars claim to be, and went ahead and ordered a Spacebar. I use it on every session I do, and its even encouraged me to record instruments in stereo more often, as now I have something that will actually hold the mics in place the way I want. Every studio I bring it to ends up loving it as well...highly recommended!

Spectacular!

This is one amazing stereo bar. VERY well-built, completely professional. I feel it's a little pricey, but it's design is incomparable. One of the most useful features is the ability to rotate/tilt the bar up or down - hard to picture myself in the future ever purchasing a bar without this feature! Great product, Grace!

Rock Steady

If you need a stereo bar this is the one to get. Rock solid, very well made, and it holds its positions once set. Also, the measurement markings are very helpful when you find the right positioning and want to replicate the set up in the future. Have been using this bar over a year or more and have never had any issue with it.

Certainly the best stereo bar I've found, certainly the most expensive. Worth it if you need it.
