Every musician knows that your sound and mixes suffer when you don't position your studio monitors correctly. Fortunately, getting to that sweet spot is easy with studio monitor stands.
As you build out your studio, one of the first things to think about is getting quality studio monitors. But when you have your studio monitors, you will also need a place to put them. Unfortunately, you can rarely just put them wherever it suits you – on a desk or on the floor. If you want a truly clear sound and easy access to your monitor's settings, you’ll definitely want quality stands. Picking the right stands can be complicated, since there are so many things to consider.
First, you need to select a studio monitor stand which can support the weight of your monitor. Fortunately, Sweetwater carries quality stands which are sturdy enough to hold any monitor. But, sometimes you also need your studio monitors to be portable. In this case, buy a portable studio monitor stand. These stands are designed to be lightweight without having to compromise on sturdiness.
Where do you want to place your studio monitors? At Sweetwater, you'll find various stands that can be positioned and/or mounted either on the floor, on your desktop, on the walls, or on the ceiling. Most people go with floor studio monitor stands because they offer a lot of flexibility. On the other hand, if you have a small studio and want your studio monitors out of the way, a wall- or ceiling-mounted stand is perfect for you. Before buying, think about your preferred placement and use that vision to narrow your choices accordingly.
Sweetwater also carries stands made from various materials. The most popular stands are made of metal, which makes them durable, but also heavier than other stands. These are best for permanent placement in your studio. Plastic stands are more affordable and lighter, making them easier to move around and better for transport.
Are you looking for the ultimate in flexibility? Check out our stands with fully flexible positioning options. These stands allow you to tilt your monitors upward or downward with ease, and you can set them at a perfect height for optimal sound dispersion.
Some of our studio monitor stands also have the ability of internal cable routing. This means that your studio doesn’t have to be a mess of cords and cables — simply buy one of these stands and have all your cables concealed for a neat and professional look.
