    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.
