by Blaine Newsom from IdahoI've been building a home studio and a PA system to start playing again. I was looking for something inexpensive but not a waste of money. Looked at the On Staqe stands at the local store and I was no... read more [+]t impressed. The clamps felt spongy. I picked this up from Sweetwater against recommendations from the sales staff. I'm glad I did. The boom locks tight and easily holds my SM-58 without slipping. It's been setting over a Keyboard extended over 2 ft without drooping. For a light weight stand I don't think you can find a better one at twice the price. I will be getting more when I start playing out again for friends to set in with me. close [-]

by fromIt's a mic stand. It stands and hold a mic. It appears well made and sturdy but I'm not throwing it around the room, it just kind of stands there and, well, holds a mic.

I saw this in a Sweetwater email, and thought it worth a try. I was concerned that the price might presage a poorly-built stand.
It arrived Saturday afternoon. I pulled it from the box and took it to my show that evening.
Time will tell, but it feels much sturdier than what I expected.
I also prefer a two-section boom, making it shorter when folded up. The base is slightly short, which makes helps with the folded size.
I withhold 5-stars till I see if it's truly as sturdy as it at-first appears. close [-]
Very Reliable But Not Quite Perfect

This stand has been taken to film shoot locations and has gotten treated pretty roughly for the past month. Parts of the stand are now difficult to adjust (the lowest adjustable section) and don't tighten as much as I'd like. But although the convenience of the stand is significantly lessened, the stand still holds strong. I've never been nervous about placing my studio mic on it. I may replace the stand soon with a new one that I'll take better care of, but I plan to keep this one around for as long as it lasts, which I think will be quite a while. close [-]
