Isolate your mic stand and improve clarity when recording.
A lot of studios have hard surface flooring, and these materials can transfer sound energy from the room to your mic stand, and eventually back into your microphone when recording. Auralex PlatFeet are an extremely effective tool for floating your mic stand and helping to eliminate some of the unwanted sound transfer. Just slide these rigid foam blocks under each foot of your stand to improve clarity and reduce feedback. This can prevent structure-borne vibrations before they transfer to the mic. They're also an ideal choice for floating snare drums and floor toms as well.
