    Great Stands

    On-Stage has become synonymous with "mic stands." We consider no other brand when looking for an inexpensive, yet top quality and reliable mic stand.

    These stands are no different. We used them for a recording of a podcast and they worked perfectly!...

    Good stand

    Very good stand made very strong it's not plastic like others. It's metal and tightens securely.

    Great add on

    This stand was bundled with a mic purchase, so I wasn't expecting much. It has now become my main stand. I like the longer boom, since I sit when I play guitar. I'm no longer banging into stand with my knee or instrument. Thanks, Sweetwater!!

    Really nice mic stand

    This is a very nice mic stand. The grips tighten well and don't slip. Lots of angle adjustments so you can get the mic exactly where you want it. Coated matte black and looks nice.

    On-Stage MS7701B Mic Stand

    I'm impressed with the quality of this mic stand. It's versatile & heavy. I have a USB mic and I also placed an older, heavier Shure Pro Logic mic in it & extended the boom horizontally as far out as it will go and it didn't tip over. For an enthusiast like me that uses this product for home use, to help better my harp & banjo playing, i believe it will hold up & last me awhile. Best bang for the bucks.

    Thank you, Sweetwater, for your prompt, friendly service.

    Boom Stand Great

    I already own one of these. Fantastic. This other that I now have was part of a promo package in fishman acoustic artist package by sweetwater. So I knew I was getting a good deal. I use it for micing my acoustic at the 12th fret. [best location] for that type of thing. while playing through the fishman loud artist acoutic amp. which by the way is great unto itself. I would say YES a great buy.

    Awesome, affordable stand

    I bought this stand thinking it was a desktop boom stand (my brain read the measurements wrong, oops!). But after I got over the initial shock of ordering the wrong thing....I fell in love with this stand! Super easy to assemble, and I love the flexibility it gives you. I record in a home studio and used to have to have all of my desk space taken up by my stand, my computer etc. But now with the floor stand it's so nice to have the mic on it's own and space on my desk for all of the extras. The adjustibility is just fantastic - I'm pretty tall, and I use this thing both standing and sitting with major ease. I got the pop filter XLR cable bundle and both are of great quality as well. Just really can't say enough good things about this stand, and can't wait to take it to use on a gig in the future!

    Great quality at a great price.

    Works great and has lots of quality adjustments. All mic stands like this are very similar if you ask me, but some can have really cheap adjustment areas that just feel cheap. This feels well built and does exactly what I need it for. Great price at under $25 with free shipping. Hard to beat that.

  • Mark
    from Kensington, CA January 16, 2014Music Background:

    A super stand of the 99%!

    This mic stand is an exceptional value and has a build quality that is absolutely outstanding regardless of its low price. Unless you're REALLY hard on your gear and/or are on the road all the time (and if you are, you're probably playing places that already have PA's anyway) there really isn't any reason to buy anything else.   I can see why these stands are so popular.   Just perfect for rehearsals, recording and gigging around town.

    I received a microphone as a gift years ago and never came around to using it because I didn't much enjoy the stand it came with. It was a tabletop stand. I purchased this stand to have more options when it came to using my microphone. This stand is very adjustable and does the job quite well.

    Lasts just as long as the expensive stuff.

    I've worked at a lot of venues with a wide variety of stands. All stands seem to break eventually, and I'd prefer to spend the big bucks on other gear. The On-Stage stands are affordable, and last a long time if you treat them OK.

  • Customer
    from Denver, CO March 25, 2016

    Perfect For Light to Medium Use

    These stands do exactly what they need to so long as they don't have to be rigorously used. I work at a venue and I've had issues with the tightening mechanism on the boom arm before; the little plastic piece that holds the nut that the tightening screw goes into will sometimes crack. If that happens, the thing is irreparable and you have to junk it. Our stands go though a lot of nightly abuse, though. If you're planning on using it kindly and not every single night, it should be totally fine.

    A Stand and a Boom! Bo-Yah!

    Good stand, good quality. Very versatile. These can be used at various heights. We use some for vocals, toms, snares and even overhead condensers. The only thing I would say could be improved on, is metal wing nuts instead of plastic. They are still a good quality, but with all kinds of other people "helping" set up and take down equipment I'm always afraid someone will crank one of those plastic nuts to tightly and break it.

    Lightweight, Versatile, Durable

    We have very little room on our stage (7x16 feet). But, surprisingly, was able to manage the base on these, and cram 8 mics on stage with a little overlap. They are stable. Easy to use and manipulate. Great value and durable.

  • Customer
    from October 31, 2011

    Good for medium duty

    The stands are very inexpensive, and are a good value for the money. A couple of caveats, though:

    The legs of the tripods do not lock in the deployed position. Every time a stand gets moved, the legs tend to flop down into the folded position. Then the stand needs to be reset. No big deal.

    The cinch collars are made of a plastic. As long as you are mindful of that and do not over-tighten them, it should serve well.

    Very nice for the price!

    I bought these stand on sale with a cable for a great price and they've held up nicely so far. I had some other cheap stands before and they just weren't cutting it anymore. These are a great step up from cheap ones and they feel solid enough to hold up on the road for a while.

  • Lotus Seven
    from Midwest USA October 21, 2011Music Background:
    Recording Engineer/Producer

    Decent Stand for the Price!

    The On-Stage MS7701B is a reasonably well made folding stand. The leg pivot tension is tight enough to keep the base from rocking and the boom pivot friction lock holds pretty well.

    This Chinese-made stand is fine for medium duty applications. It's not as well made as a K & M, but, of course, cots a lot less than a K & M.

    -Nice size - just tall enough for most studio applications.
    -Vertical shaft friction lock collar works well - easy to tighten.
    -Base is heavy enough to be stable even though it's plastic covered.

    -Boom pivot is die-cast and female threads are cut directly into the die-casting instead of a machined brass or steel thread insert. You have to be very careful not to cross thread the boom and damage the fragile die cast threads.

    -Rubber boom pivot friction washers and base leg rubber tips are cheap, really smelly Chinese rubber instead of higher quality neoprene found on better stands. It will be interesting to see how long they last.

    Correction of previous review

    I had complained in a review here about customer service wanting photographs of an photograhable defect on the ball ends of the locking handle (peanut) but after my review i was contacted and talked to their customer service agent and replacement parts are in route. So IMO score one big for On-Stage customer service, hence a 2 point bump on my score. These aren't great stands but look at the competition at this price range and in the past their stands have stood the test of time for me i have a couple at least 10 years old and still working fine and a bunch of other brand stands good for nothing but parts in the same time frame.

  • SN Vue
    from TULSA, OK May 8, 2016

    It's Okay, Not Great

    Bought this to complement my Behringer C1 condenser mic and it is pretty light weight. Can't really support the weight of that particular mic. The tripod don't stay flat on my carpeted floor, it rocks.But it does the job for $25.

  • Jeremy
    from Alabama January 7, 2013Music Background:

    Pretty good for price, not especially durable

    I used this stand for 1-2 gigs per week for about 9 months before it gave out ( boom adjustment screw stripped, knob fell off, angle adjustment broken). But, for $25, I don't really have a complaint. Replaced with a DR Tripod stand (about $60) and have been much happier. If you're on a budget and it won't get a lot of hard use, it's great. If you gig a lot, spend a little more and get something more durable.

  • Christo

    Pretty Ok

    Perfectly serviceable, but I neither require nor expect them to last as long as their Atlas or AKG counterparts. They work, they're good fill for when I'm short a stand or two, and (at this price) I won't feel too bad when one of them breaks or gets stolen - as they always do.

    Cheap Build. Great for a shoe string budget

    Cheap build. But great for a shoe string budget. The clutch tighteners don't give me confidence and have to be again tightened when using.' The tripod floor stand doesn't instill confidence and wouldn't leave home with it for public use. All the hand tightened areas just don't seem to tighten well for good solid mechanical set. But if your on a shoe string budget like I am at times-it's great

    Both Good and Bad

    This mic stand is ok for the hobby artist/producer/engineer. I bought this mic stand and it was fine at first but after about a month of 8 hr recording sessions each day and adjusting this mic to fit the artist I wanted to throw it out the window!!! The stand is very light so be careful if youre going to be using a heavy mic and the knobs are easy to strip and sometimes dont stay locked like they should. For a private studio/individual this stand is perfect but for a full fledged recording studio this stand is not the way to go.

    MS7701B Tripod Mic Stand

    This stand is extremely light weight and tips easily. Not usable with my condenser mics.

  • Jack
    from USA December 29, 2016

    Cheap, light, and not suitable for on stage

    Borderline junk. I bought this knowing it was cheap, but didn't know it was this bad. This is easy to tip over and so flimsy I would say that if it got caught under a 12" combo it would get bent. Barely passable for an amateur studio, and most definitely would not stand up to any type of gigging. I would return if it would cost more to ship than it is worth.

  • Customer
    from April 19, 2016

    Get what you pay for

    I guess the saying rings true - you get what you pay for. I bought two stands for light use in my rehearsal space and am completely disappointed with even the basic functions. One of the threads where the boom screws onto the main stand has completely stripped out already. I'll admit, there was a heavy mic hanging on it for one session, but really?

    The main disappointment is the primary boom clutch. There are two rubber pads that you need to wrench the hell out of to get a mic to stay put out on the boom. Usually it ends up sagging and requires constant attention. I ended up putting regular short hex bolts / nuts / washers to remedy that issue.

    Nice try On Stage, but there may be a reason mic stands aren't supposed to be this cheap.

    You Get What You Pay For - and you don't pay much for this...

    The titile says it pretty well. These are cheap and that's what you get. It has all the right parts and adjustments, and each part, joint, thread and fitting is VERY flimsy.

    I bought two of these to have for backups and for extra stands when my band has horn players, etc. and they will be just fine for that, but these won't survive a single month of road use, so don't ask it of them.

    My K&M is still solid after 12 years of 3-gigs-a-week use. If you want something you can depend on, you can't do any better than those. You can even tell just by the weight (or lack therof) that these stands are no pro-grade.

  • JohnR
    from North Charleston, SC January 20, 2016

    I wouldn't if I were you

    I cannot in good conscience recommend this stand. I bought this to use at the open mic I host. It was used once per week for 2 1/2 hours at a time. It only lasted 4 weeks before the height adjustment stopped working altogether.
    On the bright side, I might still be able to use it when sitting down if I use the angle of the boom to give me a little height.
