top of the line
I've suffered for so long with sub-par mic stands that I feel beaten down. So I decided to upgrade and did some online research. Everything pointed towards this stand as a kind of reference standard. Still, when I took a pair of these babies out of their mail-order boxes this afternoon and assembled them, I was--yes--blown away. I almost wanted to cry, I kid you not. They are elegant, heavy (in a good way: well-built), perfect. I didn't realize they were imported from Germany, but I'm not surprised: they are the equivalent of a BMW or Mercedes. Every design element looks, feels, effortlessly right. I can't wait to gig with them. Worth every penny.
