LP Debuts New and Improved Claw

Posted on January 16, 2015 by Chris Knowles

LP’s redesigned and improved Claw® — available on the new patent-pending EZ-Mount Mic Claw, Mic Claw, Perc Claw and Splash Claw—holds even tighter to drum and hand-percussion rims, amplifiers or other studio accessories, ensuring mics and other items remain in place. Additionally, the spring-loaded jaw makes mounting and precise placement quick and easy.

"Our claws are an industry standard used by drummers, percussionists and sound engineers," Victor Filonovich, LP’s Director of Product Development, said. "We’re pleased with the improvements that we made.These changes will make mounting percussion items easier."

The new patent-pending LP591A EZ-Mount Mic Claw is manufactured from an LP exclusive, proprietary plastic blend that provides maximum strength and durability. Its spring-loaded jaw makes mounting and fine-tuning a breeze, while ensuring secure placement of mics on snares, toms, timbales, congas or other percussion instruments. This compact and ergonomic design includes a flexible goose neck, which holds 5/8-inch diameter mic clips. With an MSRP of $48, the EZ-Mount Mic Claw easily fits any budget.

The new and improved Claw®—available on the LP592A-X Mic Claw, LP592B-X Perc Claw and LP592S-X Splash Claw — keeps your accessories from rotating freely while making placement adjustments thanks to its ratcheting design. These three models, each with an MSRP of $59, include mounting rods.

The Mic Claw, LP592A-X, is ideal for mounting large, heavy microphones, on snares, toms and congas, and includes the 3/8-inch Z-Rod, which allows close or extended positioning and the rubber-lined jaw/mount isolates the mic from vibration and cross talk.
