Mic bar for guitar amps (Where???)

DO you know what I mean? I want some mic "stand" bars that slide between an amp head and cabinet, or under the strap on a guitar amp. I can't find any online, any help PLEASE...

It's called a "Z bar"

Man, my buddy Robert Wright and his pop invented that thing... Haven't thought of it in years!

Looks handy.
How much adjustability/wiggle room does that thing have....Is it easy to place different mics(i.e Royer or 421 w/respective clips) ?
Are you stuck with mic placement right on amp grill?

Do you run into any issues with vibration transfering from the amp thru the Z bar into the mic?

I used to use them mainly on small stages to make room for, uh, the musicians. As this was live in clubs, using clubworn 57s, mainly, I was never in a postion to evaluate whether or not vibration transferrence was a problem. They absolutely work best with a front-address mic shoved into the grill, and placement options are somewhat limited, but mics on stands in clubs get knocked over and these don't, so....

Also they're mighty inexpensive. At least they were 5 years ago.
