K&M 210/9 Reviews4.3/5.0 based on 6 customer reviews
As a singer/guitarist in a thrash metal band, I tend to be kind of brutal to my live gear. So I spent a lot of time looking for my next live boom stand. I wanted something solid with a bit of weight, and - most importantly - NO give in the locking mechanisms. Once I set my boom arm angle, I want it to stay there no matter what happens. After testing them all, the K&M 210/9 was the only stand that met all my demands. Everything about it is dependable and pro. Whatever boom stand you're considering, trust me - get this one.

Better....This is a solid stand, the build quality is much better than your "standard" mic stand. However for the price I thought it would be a bit better. With a heavy LDC mic you still have to have a bear tighten the clutch. I think next time ill get a stand with metal teeth for a clutch so there is no droop at all.

Need a stout boom? Look elsewhere.Having lived with this stand for a little more than a year, I can attest that it's a good stand for light to moderate use. The feet on the folding-tripod base are fat and meaty, protecting floors from marring and isolating the stand a little from small vibration. Apart from the plastic-y adjustment knobs, the stand feels study without being too heavy or cumbersome.
However, the joint that allows the boom to swing up and down is quite weak: it's a friction clamp that pinches the boom flange between two rubber pads, barely holding it in place. To get it to stay in place, particularly when the boom is extended, you gotta tighten the boom joint as hard as possible. It's passable for the lightest of mics, but for anything with any heft at all, the boom droops like a soggy noodle.
This stand in fine for a tiny condenser over a drumkit, but I really need a boom joint that uses interlocking teeth to support heavier mics.
Stand is strong, boom joint is weak.
