Works perfectly for recording vocals in a less than ideal situation. Works just as well as it's counterpart, "the halo." Has bushings inside both connectors so it will work with any mic/studio stand. Holds the mic well and works as intended. I was able to record a singer in an open room with many reflective surfaces and it still sounded very intimate and gave me a good dry start. Won't match a studio, but gets pretty close! Better than the old trick of having the singer stand in a closet with a rack full of clothes to deaden the reflection!
