Re: Microphone: stand or mount

For the last several weeks I'v been working on guitar to accompany the violinist Greis brothers and Doug Scott on some Schrammel numbers..."Meran - Marsch", ..."a Weanerisdher Tanz", und "a Walzer nur höhrn" for the local Austrian Weinfest coming up Oct 20. We celebrated my 81st birthday this week.....

Microphone: stand or mount

Has anyone ever mounted a microphone directly to the table, using a "gooseneck" or similar device, rather than a separate microphone stand?

Re: FIT BIT?

Thanks Tom,

I'm not that sophisticated. A wrist watch, pencil, and paper work just fine.

FIT BIT?

Not to repeat myself but since I've added tracking of zither practice time to daily weight measurements and "exercise" time, things seem to be getting a little easier on the strings.

Re: New Table Success!!!!

Cherry sides? Do the cherry sides affect the acoustics? Cherry is awful heavy. We have a 36" (one meter) wide secretary's desk here in our kitchen which takes two people to lift. Would a lighter sound wood, such as cedar, help avoid the "schlepping" cart? By the way, a good natural and long lasting ...

Thanks Ken,

I'll try 3/4 inch 9 (~20 mm) spruce solid top for my next table, perhaps 3 legs.

Re: New Table Success!!!!

Should zither BOTTOMS be made of 3/4 (~20 mm) stock, or table TOPS be made of 3/16 (~5 mm) stock? Piano back??

Re: New Table Success!!!!

Thanks Ken,

Does it have an enclosed "sound box"? or open bottom? Fold-able legs? Why cherry for the sides? Note stand?
