The QR-1 QuickRelease Mic Stand Adapter makes easy work of the quick swapping of microphones and mic stands on stage and in the studio. Made up of two pieces, the QR-1 takes advantage of a ball bearing / hex fitting that makes an extra tight, super quiet connection. The bottom half threads onto a 5/8" mic stand while the top half threads into a 5/8" mic clip. To disconnect the two, simply pull down on the lower half's molded grip and lift up on the top half. That's it! The QR-1 is made from strong steel.
