Mic stands


O.K. I 'm new here ,but not new to music. I've been performing onstage for 20 years and haven't found a mic stand yet that will last 2 years without something going wrong. Has anyone got a particular manufactor that they rely on ? It has to be a tripod to go over keys. Thanks !!

Can't think of an Atlas breaking on me. Stay away from On Stage Stands.

K&M tripod booms have always served me well. Don't like Quik Lok, and anything cheap from Guitar Center is going to fall apart pretty quickly. You can expect to pay $60 to $75 for a decent boom. But it will last you forever- I have some booms that are nearly 15 years old.

I agree on both counts. I cannot understand the problem with On Stage Stands. I have some that are perfectly fine after ten years and some that stripped themselves to pieces in less than a year. I would avoid them at all costs.
K&M is what I use now but I was satisfied with my Quiklok A300s I bought a long time ago -the only issue being the heavy reliance on plastic.

I like DR PRO, not too expensive. The Hercules are very nice.
