    GFW-Mic-Stand

    I recently had rotator cuff surgery and was looking for a easy clutch mic stand solution when I came across the Gator Frameworks mic.

    I really like this stand solid but lightweight, and the clutch system works flawlessly everytime. I'm actually thinking of picking up anoyher one.

    Defective design

    GFW-MIC-2100
    Purchased 2 of these from Sweetwater. Installed booms and discovered that with the booms
    extended about 12" there was about 6-8" of horizontal movement in both stands. My other
    stands have zero movement.
    The problem took me about 1 1/2 hours to correct.
    What was the problem?
    Poor design and manufacturing.
    The area that provides the anchoring force for the up/down movement, well I could describe it
    but you should be familiar with this defect.
    First, the extruded aluminum piece that holds the 4 locking legs was lightly pressed into the
    tube. Once removing the locking tension provided by the spring I was able to remove both of
    them by hand.
    This was the cause of about 75% of the slop. I had to peen the tube around the locking leg base
    to remove the movement.
    I then could no longer twist, by hand, this "locking mechanism", even when it was under tension,
    supposedly providing compression to stop movement!!
    But that was not the only defect in design and manufacture.
    The 4 locking legs were so loose in their housing that there was still about 3" of slop in the
    boom. (check above for the setup).

    The legs are die cut with rough surfaces and fit sloppily into their receptacles. This creates a lot
    of side movement that shows up at the end of the boom.
    Solution for this defect was to tighten the slots for the legs using a vise grip.
    I have been using mic stands for about 50 years and cannot recall having to ever fix a new unit.
    These mic stands are junk.
    If I did not need them now they would have been sent back to sweetwater for a refund.
