You can't go wrong with these clamps, they're fully adjustable and an absolute joy to use.. i've been using them for over ten years and personally have a set of four for my snare and toms that i've been using for over two years and they're still Solid!
First off, let me start by saying I am a big fan of Shure microphones. ALL of my drum mics are Shure. Beta 52, Beta 56, SM57, etc. It felt natural for me to invest in these clamps. By far, these are the worst investment I've ever made. Here are the problems: 1) The fastening screws constantly loosen. At least once per gig,I have an L post pop out of the clamp 2) The rim clamp also loosens frequently. Recently, the rim clamp loosened during a performance. The entire clamp system popped off the rim, with the Beta 56 mic now hanging from the drum rim. In the meantime, the clamp was gouging a nice little canyon into the side of my 12" hand lacquered tom finish. 3) The hexagonal L post doesn't give me flexibility of mic placement THIS CLAMP SYSTEM NEEEDS A REWORK
The Shure A56D Drum Mount is the best mount that I have worked with hands down. This mount places the mic a comfortable distance away from the toms and snare for the drummer, but close enough to get the crisp sound off of the drums. Like I said I've used various drum mounts and this model has worked the best for me. Enjoy!
