Mount-a-Mic assembly instructions

Here is a step-by-step guide to assemble an Xaudia Mount-a-Mic cable:

1. Make sure you have all the parts.

2. Strip and prepare the cable ends ready for soldering. Push through the Mount-a-Mic adapter

3. Solder the female XLR connector. We recommend connecting the barrel lug to pin 1.

4. Fit the plastic strain-relief

5. Slide the metal barrel over the plastic parts

6. Slowly screw the barrel into the adapter, allowing the cable to rotate freely as you go. 

7. Fit your choice of connector to the other end, and enjoy!

Mount-A-Mic adapters from Xaudia

Have you ever struggled to find the right clip or mount to put a microphone on a stand? Here is a solution: the Mount-a-Mic adapter from Xaudia.

Xaudia - Mount-a-Mic assembled cable

This simple yet cunning gizmo is designed to convert XLR plugs so that they can be screwed onto a 5/8” mic stand.

The Mount-A-Mic adapter simply replaces the cable gland on Neutrik XLR plugs. The cable now exits through the side, and the assembly can be attached to the mic stand.

Then just plug the mic in, and go! You can now put almost any microphone on your stand, so long as it has an XLR plug.  Great for Geffell….

And a Neumann is no problem!

Here are some assembly instructions for those who wish to make their own cables.


New RCA thread adapters

We have some shiny new thread adapters for RCA microphones.  These thread adapters fit most of the 'big' vintage RCA microphones, including the 44, 74b, and 77 ranges, and also are perfect for Sony professional mics, including the C38b and C48 microphones.

We have been selling thread adapters for a while but the latest batch are a step up in quality. They are machined from solid brass and have a standard 3/8" female thread that will fit most modern mic stands. They can also be supplied with 5/8" on request.

It fits this RCA77B perfectly.

These fit the following microphones….
Most RCA 44, PB140, PB144, 74b, 77B, 77DX, MI-4010-A, BK-11.
