The shockmount or clip that came with my microphone won't fit on my mic stand. Do I need an adapter or something?
Probably not. Most European mic stands use a narrower clip mount with a smaller thread size. As a result, many mic manufacturers include a little insert inside their mic clips and shockmounts. These inserts are normally slotted so that you can unscrew them with a flathead screwdriver... or even a coin. What's left are threads that fit most mic stands in the Americas.
