This is a high-quality, heavy duty microphone boom stand that is designed for studio as well as live use. This mic stand is big enough and strong enough to hold microphones that are quite heavy indeed. I think would be a great asset for any studio owner to have, mainly because they are flexible, tall, and strong. The legs are solid steel and the entire thing is durable and difficult to bend, break, or move easily. Plus, the wheels lock in place once the position is set. One end up the stand has a weight attached, which is useful in balancing out the weight of the stand, giving you flexibility in micing techniques and preventing you from having to tighten the stand too hard, which can often result in stripping.

OVERALL OPINION

I love these mic stands. They are definitely the best we have at the studio I work for. We tend to use all Quiklok stands but these are definitely the best. We like to use these on our heavy tube and large diaphragm condenser mics, because they can hold up those heavy microphones quite easily. I also tend to use them as overheads because they can go the highest, and they are easy to maneuver even when the microphone is ten feet in the air. The only time I wouldn't be using these types of stands would be if I was micing a kick drum, or a guitar amp or cabinet that was on the ground (I would still usually put the guitar cabinet in a chair though, which would mean I could still use this stand if I wanted to). Overall these are the best mic stands I've used.
