Currently looking into getting a proper microphone with a boom arm. I am however a bit concerned with how the boom arm will mount to my table. It's not a proper office desk and it has a slight curve on the top side of the edge. (a bit like the image below)
When looking at the PSA-1 specifications it only seems to show the maximum height of a table and not the depth into the table. So what I'm asking is if you think it will be possible to mount a PSA-1 to a table with a slightly curved top-side? Does anyone have the depth specs for the arm?

Thanks!

If the desk-clamp won't fit properly on the bevelled edge of your desk, you have the option of mounting it securely with the supplied Desk Insert. See the last page of the Product Manual: https://rode.com/en/accessories/stands-bars/psa1

Thank you for response, very helpful to actually see the manual. Unfortunatly, drilling a hole in the desk just isn't an option for me. I appreciate the help though!!

How thick is the desktop?

You may be able to find some sort of U-bracket that will slide over the edge of the desktop to "square off" the rounded/beveled edge.

Then clamp the microphone book as suggested above in Post #2. See Step #4.

Or if you, a family member, or friend is at all handy and has the tools you can probably fabricate a bracket to fit.

Either directly or modifying some other bracket.

From the link:

"U-brackets measure 11/16 in. inside diameter"

DIY approach.
