You Won't Find a Better Mic Stand at This Price!

The MC-05 offers you a space-saving roundbase design, packed with innovations from best-in-class leader Ultimate Support. If you're looking to equip your stage rig with a rock-solid, reliable stand, this is the way to go. And you're going to get helpful features you wouldn't expect at this low price. For example, you've got a quick-release clutch that quietly, reliably, and easily tightens and releases... that's important when you need to make a fast adjustment in the middle of a gig — or when multiple folks are sharing the same microphone atop the MC-05.

And while the space-saving features of the MC-05 make it worth its merit, this round-base stand is also weighted for extra stability. That's why countless schools, churches, bands, and stage artists go with the MC-05 — it has that traditional onstage look, and surprising performance when you factor in the competitive price. Another nifty feature about the MC-05 is that the base of it easily attaches and releases, with just a few turns. Gigging musicians will appreciate that easy breakdown, so they can take the MC-05 with them in the car. And those same gigging musicians will appreciate the MC-05's self-locking mechanism, ensuring that the base won't come unthread unless you want it to. Go onstage and give the MC-05 all you have... it can handle it.

Solid mic stand

Great mic stand base. I was using the tripod leg base but after buying this, I'll never go back.

Well-designed base coupling

I'll confess I haven't used the stands enough to comment on their long-term durability, but I do see one particular feature that I think is well designed and bodes well for their longevity: where the shaft meets the base there is a conical "shoulder" above the threads that fits snugly into a corresponding tapered hole in the base (think of a rubber stopper into a bottle), so that any bending stress is not transferred to the top of the thread cut, which is inevitably a weak point. If I'm not mistaken, it looks like they have a patent on this feature. That is a good sign that the stands will last. The height adjustment clutch seems sturdy, too. I treat my gear well and gig only about twice per month, so I expect these stands to last a long time. I've given it 4.5 stars because there is always room for improvement, and there must be a reason that other top-name stands such as K&M cost considerably more - in other words, Ultimate Support had to cut a corner somewhere to sell this at such a low price. But this is without a doubt MUCH better quality than anything from OnStage.

Pretty standard and OK

Hard to get blown away by a mic stand. This seems basic and fine. Not sure it is anything better than the OnStage stand I bought previously for a few bucks less. I'd call them about even.

The height lock stripped within 24 hours of use. Also, the weight isn't heavy enough to support my Reflexion Filter PRO + Mic which is why I bought it... This stand is just really basic and poor quality. Nothing special.
