Haha, come on there's...erm... one boom stand going underneath (bottom right corner)... ;P

Plus the shorty stand, chrome base to the right, also is under the drum. I wonder what secret stash they have down there. That is where the real magic is. ;-)

Not my photo - found it on the Internet.

Clockwise:
SM57 with transformer removed (thus the shock mount, as removing the transformer increases the low frequency response and subsequent mechanical noise)
New SM57
Old SM57
?
Sennheiser MD441
Sennheiser MD421
AKG 451
SM7
Beta87
Beta56
?
SM81

There also appears to be a stand for a bottom mic.

Yup, it's a mic shoot-out. Bet the first SM57 still won.
