- A (usually) plastic device that threads onto the end of a microphone stand which holds a microphone. Some clips allow the microphone to just slip in, others are spring clips which require the user to open the clip with one had while inserting the microphone with the other. All clips are not the same; since microphones come in different sizes and shapes, each comes with its own specific clip. Be sure you use the right clip so the microphone doesn't fall out or break the clip.
- In a lapel microphone system, the plastic device that holds the microphone to a spring-loaded clothes-pin type clip. This allows the microphone to be clipped/attached to a persons clothes. Source: Church Audio & Acoustics Glossary
