Love Atlas Sound but will almost EXCLUSIVELY be purchasing from Sweetwater in the Future!
The stand is amazing! Heavy as hell and dependable. While I love the quality and immaculate workmanship that goes into each stand and musical accessory that the company sells, I had a somewhat major issue with shipping. I don not want to go into full detail, but basically Atlas Sound offered me some amazing artist-accommodated pricing and the staff there was great, but when the package arrived, the neck of the stand (long chrome piece I spent quite a few bucks on) had fallen out of the box!!! I assumed it was lost in transit and though the Atlas staff has apologized and sent a new one, I have NEVER had a problem with Sweetwater shipping! I get every thing I ordered and free candy with every order haha.
Anyhow, this MS25 stand is quite a beauty. I believe that Dan from the Black Keys has the same stand so if that helps you make your decision to purchase this stand, then well yeah awesome! My only problem with this stand is that due to the weight, it is hard to reposition it midsong or even midset. It looks a bit awkward if you have to drop a guitar/bass, etc. and use both hands, your knees, and your back to lift this stand to a comfortable place on stage. I apologize greatly for my lack of articulation with the English language but gist of the story: Buy From SWEETWATER and you shall never have any issues with shipping and their staff is phenomenal! Cheers!
