Need something heavy duty to hold my heavy microphone at an angle. This stand is really great!
Not much to really say here. It's a mic stand. It does have some weight to it which is good.
I play in weekend bars, it works well.
This is probably the best stand in this price range. It is a durable- well built stand. One noticeable difference with this stand is that it is much heavier than the higher end stands. I bought 2 of theses and would not hesitate to buy more. I am very happy w/this purchase.
This mic stand was part of a microphone bundle and was blown away when it arrived. For what I paid for the entire package I thought this would be a flimsy, lightweight piece that I would have to replace quickly. I was wrong. This mic stand has weight. Not too heavy, but you can tell it's well built. Ease of use and lots of options to put the mic exactly where you need it.
Heavy duty and stable. Extends to proper position no matter where it's placed.
The ms9701tb was a pleasant surprise. Very affordable, rugged and easy to set up. It has a nice wide tripod base that's very stable and when you get everything positioned the way you want, it doesn't'creep.' I would reccomend this microphone stand to any musician whether beginner or professional.
Rugged, heavy duty mic stand! Holds up to the rigors of "the road"! Very pleased.
Only negative would be that it slips slightly when boomed out all the way, with a heavier mic. But hoping it just needs a little break-in time!
I used 2 of them for holding up my sheet music and holding up the mics at different settings with the different types of positions with their boom that has 3 adjustment settings for me to work with.
incredible value, and really rugged stand. feels like a pro stand
I bought this to use while playing drums. I've tried other stands, but this one is very sturdy and I love the telescoping boom to adjust to wherever I need it.
This is a very good stand, and heavily made. "9 lbs of steel" is written on the box it came in. I find it very sturdy, and the quality looks to be top flight. It seems to be quite large when employed, but it folds up into a very small, easy to manage size for storage, or transportation. I recommend it to anyone who needs a boom stand. I might buy another soon!
This mic stand is so easy to use, I wonder why I didn't buy it sooner! It sits out of the way when not in use, and swings right out when I need it! Doesn't sag, and holds my mic right where I want it. Now it's easier to focus on the music, the sound, the experience, and the feel of my songs without having to wonder why doesn't this mic stay in place. I bought this to go along with a newer mic from Sweetwater, and it is serving me well! If only it had a music stand, and could turn the pages........
The stands seem to be built very well for the price. Much heavier build quality than the stands I am replacing. Thanks to Dan VanAmerongen for his assistance in choosing the stands.
I have one of those 12 year old stands with the heavy cast base, and this stand is much nicer, more flexible, and has a longer boom arm. I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 stars for two reasons: the center thread that attaches the boom arm is a pretty fine thread and the boom arm is somewhat unwieldy when screwing it on, so do it slowly to avoid possibly starting to cross thread the threads and the center snugger for the height adjustment seems to work much better when the top cross arm is attached, unlike my old one that will snug with or without the cross arm attached. All in all, if I need another stand in the future, I would buy another one of these.
I've entrusted this stand with my Neumann 147 tube.
Excellent for live performance. I recommend it.
Finally found a mic stand heavy enough to actually stand up. Good tough construction.
Just got 2 of these and they seem like they're going to work great. I was having some trouble threading the boom on to the stand and was afraid I'd cross thread it. My solution was to put a little petroleum jelly on the the threaded part of the stand, and then the boom went on really smoothly without worry of cross threading.
Overall this mic stand is decent. It offers multiple adjustments that allow you to angle a microphone in precise areas. Unfortunately I've experienced the same problems as a previous reviewer. When fully extending the boom or hanging a microphone horizontally the arm will sag quickly. This is after very little use, practically brand new. I plan on buying a more expensive stand to accomplish longer arm microphone positioning.
I purchased 2 of these stands over a year ago . They have worked ok except that at full extension when I come back after setting them a couple hours later the mic is now on the key board instead of in the air. I have been pulling wrenches for 36 year and can't get the clutches tight enough to stay up if i pull any harder they are going to break or strip the threads.
If this is supposed to be the 'heavy-duty' stand from on-stage stands I would hate to see their regular ones. It would be great for live use but it is highly insufficient in the studio, especially if you're putting any weight on it (like a reflexion filter)
It is a HEAVY stand....not sure about heavy duty - the small screw that tightens to hold the tripod legs no longer snugs them up after less than 10 shows - the stand looks brand new - no scratches or anything but is now pretty worthless. If you left this set up (in a church or something) it would be ok - if you are setting up and tearing down regularly - Pay a few $ more and get something that will last
I heard great things about this stand, so I bought it. Upon arrival, I was impressed with the solid feel and stability, however that was all short lived. After a month of regular use, the clutch broke, mid-setup. I have seen more durability from stands half this price. If you want quality, go for a K&M. If you're on a budget, stick to a cheaper, lighter-weight stand. Stay away from this one, it is not a very good design.
