boom clutch

Usually I am a good Finder. but I can no longer locate anyone who sells a boom clutch as a separate replacement part.

I have bases, I have stands, I have boom arms, but many of my clutches are stripped out or otherwise pizzled. Once upon a time I used to see places sell the clutch only. Now an hour of googling and nothing.

plenty of places are selling cheap boom stands or cheap boom arms with a clutch, but I already have nice steel stands and arms. tutt

why do I have to buy a whole new stand when I just need the clutches

I tried searching for "boom clutch" and "boom clamp" too.

anybody got a source for these?

They have parts, including clutch assemblies.

thanks Pericles,

unfortunately the clutch parts they have are for the vertical clutch -

the only separate boom clutch they have is for the big booms. I have two of that size but I need the boom clutch for the regular size (stage?) mic stands. Besides, that bad boy clutch was $157.00

I know that I can get a clutch if I buy a boom arm with it, but dammit I already have plenty of boom arms.

So you want the boom swivel? --




This place might get them: http://www.youdoitelectronics.com/id303.htm

Don't know if you can buy just the clutch pads for those. Maybe call Atlas if that is what you need.

Try Black Audio Devices. They make after market parts for mic stands
which are better than the OEM parts. I don't think there is a website,
but you can Google and find a phone number.

I had heard Black Audio closed a couple of years ago.

Wow. If that's true, it's a big loss.

Wes Dooley is usually a good source for some of these kinds of things, but I didn't see any on his website. Maybe give AEA a call.

I use this:

ABS - Adjustable Boom Stop for your drooping, dropping, slipping boom arm microphone stand

it works on my old boom stand where the clutch is completely useless.

You can buy the clutches here. Took me a good amount of time to find a way to just purchase these replacement mic stand items.
