Thanks Brian. I did actually make a couple of gooseneck mic clamps myself.
I had  already purchased the crab claw style clamps, I was able to find the bolt/washer hardware in my tool box and purchased the LocLine pieces on eBay which was the cheapest I could find. 
I had a problem with the mic end holding tight so I purchased jam nuts and used longer bolts, getting them nice and tight before adding the mic thread adaptor -they now work great. Thank you for the idea.
I believe mine cost me $18 each.

Finally got round to taking a photo of my version compared to the bought one.....
The one on the left cost me $45 and the one on the right cost me $18 ( mic clips not included)

Looks Great Debbie! Stage Ninja has great clamps but they're definitely not cheap. Yours looks like it'll work great, and take up a lot less room too.

Thanks Brian... I think the crab claw style clamps are a little more expensive than the gibraltar ones you used. It put the price up bit.  Still a WAY better price than the Stage Ninja.... (I hope Stage Ninja aren't reading this thread)

You should probably watch your back. Ninjas are deadly and silent!

You can tell that picture was taken by a soundperson - there's a drum key in the picture!

What do you think of the D12VR?
Had my eye on one of those for a while.
