Performer-friendly Mic Stand with Small Stage Footprint!

Once you get one, you'll never go back! That's right. Ultimate Support's Live Series of microphone stands feature a one-hand clutch, so it's really easy to adjust the height when you're performing. And it holds better than any other one-hand stand you've ever seen or used — like we said, once you get used to it, you'll never want to switch back to the other crank-style kind again.

What you're looking at right now is the Live-SB. The SB in the name stands for "Stackable Base" another clever innovation from the folks at Ultimate Support. Go ahead and stack up to six stands for really easy storage. That feature's just one reason music venue and touring groups are flocking to the Ultimate Support Live-SB.

Another reason? The Ultimate Support Live-SB features a patented Universal Mic Attachment. This innovation means the stand has built-in threading for both US- and metric-threaded microphone clips and accessories. If you get booked on a tour on another part of the world, you can be sure you can use your trusty Live-SB stand with whatever mics the FOH guy wants to put on it.

All in all, a rugged stand that's ready to handle whatever you throw at it, the Live-SB from Ultimate Support offers the combination of durability, light weight, space-saving features you appreciate from a microphone stand. Factor in the Ergo one-handed clutch that feels great in your hand and is super-easy to use, and you've got a winning combination with the Live-SB from Ultimate Support.

Quality product

In my opinion, Ultimate stands are the best quality with the best craftsmanship period. Yes, they are more expensive but you get what you pay for. Rather than having to replace a cheaply made stand after 1 or 2 years, I buy these and they last year after year.

A GREAT mic stand

I have several of these and they sure put other stands to shame. The only complaint is that I have a hard time squeezing the place to raise and lower it. Maybe my hands are not strong enough but I wonder if anyone else has trouble. But you won't worry that the stand will collapse. No worry that your mic will be damaged. And this stand stands steady. It won't fall like other stands.

Great Build quality (EU/US mic threads problematic)

The Quality heft and durability of these stands and the equivalent tripod and clutch versions are fantastic. They are HEAVY, which i like but might not make great road stand if you need to lugged them around all over with out road boxes for them. I don't like there Patent Pending system for swapping between the EU and US microphone threads. I feel that most will simply use one or the other and not be switching between them. That said the US threaded thimble that screws around the EU slides when using microphone clip torque to secure. I ended up "loctite" to permanently bind the two threads together. Thats my only complaint though which is minor for such a great qualtiy stand

Not reliable

The company I work for purchased several of these mic stands a little over a year ago and all of them have begun failing. Here's what I discovered after conducting a post- mortem There is a push rod that runs down the center of the tube and connects the brake (a little spidery looking plastic piece that extends over a rubber stopper- NOT built to last as well!) to the hand clutch. Apparently the push rod connects to a nylon coupler that connects it to the hand clutch. That coupler is crimped inside the tubing so when it fails it can't be replaced, since it's nylon it obviously ain't gonna last long. Once the coupler tears out, the joint between push rod and hand-clutch and actual brake mechanism is irreparably broken and your $80 mic stand is now about $2.00 worth of scrap metal.

Not recommended

I thought this would be the answer to my dreams - one handed adjustment! It was fine the first few times. Then, when the weather got cold the mic would not stay put - it would always slip down. I adjusted the tightness - it helped for awhile. Now it only stays up when it wants to making it unusable regardless of the weather. I regret this purchase (I did not get it from Sweetwater).
