    Ultimate Support Live-T Stand

    This is the best mic stand ever. Easily adjusts with one hand and locks into postion. I have used several in the past and this is great.

    The Light Weight makes it Great!

    I'm a vocalist with a back problem who can not lift anything heavy. I sit singing on a stool for most of my 60 to 90 minute gigs; but, will also stand for a few of my songs. The super light weight of the Live T stand makes things much easier to raise & lower its height quickly, while performing and using it as a prop. The only reason I gave it a 4.5 instead of a 5, is that I would have preferred the smaller triangle shaped base for even better manipulation while performing; but, that base is much heavier, which is necessary for keeping that version of the stand stable. Because of how the tripod is designed, the Live T is only about 4 pounds and yet still amazingly stable, so for me, no question, it's the best choice out there! Also, because the tripod folds up, this stand needs very little room when packing up my gear in a limited cargo space.

    Nice stand

    I like the light weight, heavy-duty construction and the versatility of this stand but have a couple of quibbles. As someone else mentioned, the grip is fairly stiff and some of the people that have used it have complained about it. I'm hoping it'll get a little looser with further use. I've also had some trouble keeping the top part from pivoting around when in use but think I've solved that--probably "user error". I really like the way the feet lock in although the width of the base means it's a bit of a problem to fit it into the Gator mic stand bag I use. Finally I think the stand could be a bit shorter; I have people with a variety of heights using this stand and one woman actually had trouble reaching the mic with the stand at its lowest level!

    Ulitmate Pistol Grip Mic Stand "Live-T"

    I owned one of the older models of the Ultimate "pistol-grip" stands, and loved it because of its ease of raising or lowering. The new model I purchased to replace the older one is heavier, sturdier, and clearly made to withstand the rigors of stage shows. That said, I find its pistol grip hard to work, and have had more than one person using it unable to make it work until I showed them how hard they had to squeeze. I like the collapsible tripod, better design than the old one which was broken easily by someone not understanding how to unlock it before spreading the tripod, but Ultimate needs to redesign the squeeze-trigger stand raising/lowering device.

    Ultimate Support Live T Junk!

    Don't waste your money. This stand is absolute and total crap. I've been in the biz for over 40 years and am gentle with my gear. This stand has broken and been replaced 3 times. The nightmare is too long for me to sit and type it up. Trust me on this, or buyer be ware...... Sweetwater is awesome, Ultimate is junk.

    Not an improvement over the older model

    I used the older Ultimate model for years until it was stolen, so figured the new model would be as good or even better. Not so.

    I play tenor sax and sing, so could instantly raise the mike for vocals and drop it for playing.

    The old model was light, aluminum instead of steel. The squeeze height control worked instantly and like silk. With the new one, I have to fondle the squeeze bar to find a sweet spot, and the up-down is balky. The old one was just the right height for a shorty like me. The bottom section on the new one is eight inches longer than the old, so cannot be dropped as low.

    All in all, the new model is a disappointment. They should have done some field testing before putting it on the market.

    I really like the folding tripod legs for transport purposes, so I'm going to see if I can shorten the lower section so it can meet my height needs, and hope the vertical balkiness smooths out with use.
