The real reason for adding all the holes to the "Cheese Stick": Adding the ability to bolt just about anything camera or microphone onto it in any configuration I want.

This is a double mid-side recording setup for recording 5.0 surround sound. The upper and lower mics are Transound TSB-25AX Alice microphones acting as the front and rear cardioids. The middle mic is my Transound TSB-165A mid-side mic that I'm using as the figure-8 side channel in this setup.

The tracks from all three mics are run through the Schoeps Double-MS VST plugin in Reaper. The end result is five channel surround sound.

I can't say it's the neatest setup in the world, but it's relatively easy to work with and really straightforward to set up on the cheese stick. (Next I need to try this in the field!)

The "Cheese Stick" started life as a fixturing tool so I could turn my car into a portable vocal booth by mounting my microphone scissor arm inside.

In its original incarnation it actually worked fine. But I couldn't stop there. I eventually threw it back on the mill, drilled and tapped a bunch of 1/4"-20 holes for mounting other things, and expanded its usefulness.

The "Cheese Stick" is the result of too much feature creep on a simple idea. This started off as a portable clamp mount for a vocal mic scissor-arm. But the more I modified it, the more I wanted to keep modifying it!

It's shown here clamped to the passenger seat headrest posts with a small ballhead bolted to the reverse side for mounting microphones to do in-car stereo recording (vroom vroom!)

All four contact mics glued, soldered, closed up, and ready to record.

The tin has a non-conductive coating on it. This means you can glue the piezo disc straight into the bottom without risking a short, but it means you have to scrape or sand the coating off in order to attach the cable shield to the inside of the tin. The other two wires just solder straight to the piezo disc.
