Is this permanent or temporary?

K&M do an adjustable stand that can be screwed to the ceiling of a normal sized room. Look HERE.


Also - Neumann do the MNV 87 auditorium hanger to hold a mic. by its own cable.

I hope this helps.

Take the boom off of a mic stand, then get a clamp of some sort and bolt it to the ceiling. Clamp the boom into it and Bob's your uncle. That's what I did for drum overheads and it works great.

Get a desk stand from Maplins (round bass) drill a couple of holes, screw it to your ceiling ( find a joist first, though) attach a boom arm, jobs a good 'un. Cheap as chips too!

All the music stores around here sell flanges with mic stand threads. Screw one of these to a ceiling joist and add your choice of boom/gooseneck.
