I used to road cycle a lot about five years ago so it occurred to me
that bicycle handlebars are like the perfect portable
mic/recorder/camera stand because there's a handlebar clamp for
just about any device out there.
So I ordered a bullhorn bar and a set of mic clamps from China as
I simply didn't have what I wanted available locally. Also ordered
some heat shrink tubing to protect the bars against scratches,
weather and maybe slightly reduce the handling noise going to the
mics as well. And I will attach a shoulder sling to the bar as well.
So stuff like this:
I will post some pics when I get to build the thing.
Good stuff Timi. Looks like a solution.
When I used to record stuff for MSFS nearly 15 years ago we bodged our own solution but it was much less impressive than yours.
Extendable painting roller pole from a DIY store with a clamp to hold the mic to and a zoom recorder at the end.
If you're going to have a cable from the mic to the recorder then my top tip from many frustrated efforts would be tape the entirety of the cable along your handlebar, the sound of the wire hitting the pipe as we moved it around or the wind hit it ruined many a recording even when it was secured in various places.
