I'd like to get a boom mic stand for REW measurements. For now I have the radio shack spl meter (older analog model 33-2050) just attached to a tripod; but from what I've read, the boom mic stand is the way to go. Do I need anything special to attach the meter to the mic stand? I thought I saw some threaded piece previously but can't find the thread or maybe it was for something else.

To be safe,

I would suggest you might take your Radio shack SLM into a Radio Shack and ask if they sell an adapter that goes between the meter and a mic stand .


OTOH, camera stand threads are typically a standard size, as are mic stand threads / so with a bit more research you should be able to really narrow down what you need ( from the list behind this pic ) ;
.

:)

PS : I just threaded a 1/4 -20 bolt into the receptacle of my Radio Shack SLM .

Excellent answers both. Thanks. Actually, I decided to stick with the tripod with a 2FT piece of all-thread coupled to it, and extend it to the listening position. Oh yeah, I had to anchor one side of the tripod with a brick. All said, it works great and the spl meter is right where I want it. Maybe later I'll get the boom mic stand. This will work for now.

you don't have to give up toying with the mic stand idea,I bought these 2 stands at pawn shops in the last couple weeks for $10 each ! pawn shops are an excellent source for pro audio equipment at great prices.

That Manfrotto ball head is very interesting!

For now, here is a photo of what I did. It's just a piece of 1/4" all-thread attached to the tripod's 1/4" mounting plate screw via 1/4" coupling screw. It allows me to put the SPL meter in just the right location without touching the couch. It's counter balanced by placing a brick at the opposite leg of the tripod.
