    Majestic Geared Head

    I have a majestic Model 1903 Geared Head and was wondering if there is a gizmo that would allow me to mount the head on Bogen Model 3035? The head mounts directly on a tube. Any help would be much appreciated.

    Yes, Majestic sells an adapter. You can order it at any dealer that sells Majestic heads, like B&H, Adorama, and I'd imagine the places like Samy's and such on the West Coast should have it. The model number should be at www.bencher.com. Here's the page--

    I ordered both:

    MAJESTIC 800 ADAPTER - 1-1/2"
    MAJESTIC 802 ADAPTER - 1-7/8"

    $20.00 each + shipping

    Why would you order both unless you have two heads? They make one line of heads that mount directly on a 3/8" stud, another that mounts on a 1-1/2" tube, and another that mounts on a 1-7/8" tube. You only need the one that fits your head.
