This versatile boom is designed specifically for those hard to reach places, such as drum or other instrument miking. The Telescoping Mini Boom offers the most flexibility of all the Posi-Lok booms. It has the same features as the 7" Posi-Lok boom, but adds a 9"-16" telescoping arm. The center piece of the Posi-Lok system comes complete with two 52-teeth disks that rotate 300 degrees and grip together, and is built with an ergonomic adjustment knob.

Telescoping Mini Boom Features:
  • 9"-16" telescoping arm
  • Rotates 300 degrees

It's all about the pivot joint

Whether onstage or in a studio, few things compare to the horror of watching your boom-mounted microphone slowly slipping down away from your mouth, instrument, or speaker cabinet; the Posi-Lok design puts an end to that. This results from using a locking, toothed mechanism at the pivoting joint of the boom, as opposed to the friction-type clutch used with an ordinary boom. I just wish that On-Stage stands would incorporate this type of pivot into their regular booms, and eliminate the friction clutches entirely; I'd gladly replace all my friction-clutch booms in a minute. For versatility's sake, I would recommend getting at least one each of the Telescoping Mini Boom (MSA9505) and the Side Mount Boom (MSA9508). Note that the two halves of the locking pivot mechanism are interchangeable: that is, for example, you could take the telescoping boom arm and attach it to the side mount clamp. Another handy arrangement is to have the telescoping boom attached to the top of your stand, and extending out for vocals, while the side-mount stand is clamped on partway down the stand, in position for your acoustic guitar. Put a little counterweight at the bottom of the stand and you're ready to go.

lightweight replacement for traditional boom

Been looking for ways to lighten my load when packing my equipment for gigs and came across these. I've not been a big fan of "On-Stage" equipment because a couple of mic stands I had purchased several years ago from that brand were not very high quality and so I was reluctant to give them another shot. Even though they are the only manufacturer in this niche [mini-booms], no other manufacturer offers something of this nature. One of the great things about this is the fact that because it is shorter than a "traditional" boom, one can use it in smaller spaces. Another great feature is the rachet-style adjustment, which allows the user to lock in the precise angle. I've had other booms which would not stay at the proper angle because as the bushings wore out, they simply became useless. And because this boom is a telescoping boom, one can adjust the length anywhere from 9 inches to 16 inches.

Angle Without Overhang

Regrettably, "no overhang" DOESN'T mean immunity from the dreaded hangover... ...However, this little beauty undoubtedly provides sure relief from one of the audio world's most persistent headaches: the lack of floor and elbow space. You've been there. The venue's architect has created an oh-so-fashionably magnificent acreage for selling drinks, with the result that the band's effectively playing on a window ledge. Conventional boom stands would mean that the only way of placing a mic in front of the keyboard vocalist's mouth would have the boom's "stub" in the saxophonist's ear. The bass player is subject to a somewhat different problem. Let's just say that she or he may have some reservations regarding the development of an overly personal and eye-watering relationship with the conventional hardware that's intended to position the drummer's vocal mic. Not with one of these. The teeth grip, the extension's secure and the mic stays where you want it to be. Oh ...and it's cheap, ...so there'll be some money left for the headache pills.

Works right now, but I wonder...

I purchased this boom to use with the On-Stage KSA7575 mic attachment bar. The bar has been solid thus far, but I'm not so sure this boom will last more than 6 months. The main locking mechanism on the boom seems ok, but the restraint which secures the boom extension, changes the alignment of the mic AND the boom extension is NOT all that solid. I'm hoping the Ultimate Support boom I just ordered will work better!
