Microphone Stand for Mounting a Theremin

I've seen many microphone stands at online stores like amazon, but I don't know which one will give me the proper stability and height adjustment to use with my theremin. I'd like to have a tripod stand, and I'll put a mounting flange on the bottom of my theremin. I've looked through flanges as well, but I don't know how to tell which flange will fit with which stand.

Here are some products I've looked at:





Will I want a male or female mounting flange? I assume it depends on which type of stand I get, so could anyone suggest a good combo that will work well?

most mounting flanges are female, and most mike stands are male. All standard mike stands are the same size. As long as the tri-pod stand is a mike stand, it's all standard.
Hope that helps

Thanks Andy- I saw some flanges that had threads, and others that just had what looked to be an octagonal female socket (like the atlas one). Are mic stands usually threaded?

The standard mike stand thread (in the USA anyway) is 5/8"-27.

The mike stand is a male thread and the microphone mount (flange or otherwise) is a female thread.

The flange you need is Atlas part number AD-11B (chrome) or AD-11BE (black).

The photograph on the Amazon website showing a hex (slip fitting) is incorrect. The description describes the piece as a 5/8"-27 female thread.

The male mounting flanges are for mounting a microphone to a table top or lectern, taking the place of a mike stand.
