hey guys, i was needing something like this also for interviews. I know that generally we want to boom from above, i was curious how well would a shotgun mic rigged on a basic microphone stand and off to the side of the speaker pointed at the mouth. on the stand is the 416, while another lav serves channel 2. what do you think?

K-Tek also has a boom holder:

It holds the pole gently and can be used on a light stand, C stand or microphone stand. It's not the cheapest option at $171.95 (discounted at B&H).

Does anybody use just a regular mic stand with a good, long boom arm? Seems like a lot less trouble, and they're not very expensive. In sitdown interview situations, it would seem like four feet or so ought to be plenty.

I have in the studio, but when on location I have, but the carbon fiber boom and, suspension mount and lighter stand are each preferable to me on a shoot.
