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.
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.
When recording having the ability to place the mic a the right angle and position is important.
I'll be getting more in the future.
Good quality and at a grate price ... On-Stage is a grate buy
Good stand. This is number 2
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
It is what I consider heavy, which is a good thing. Seems well built. Articulates just fine.
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.
you get what you pay for. good stands for what they are we use them all the time
Very nice stand. I was impressed with its sturdiness. I couldn't imagine a better stand with more features.
Very pleased with the 3 boom stands I purchased from Sweetwater the sales rep. was great to work with and with the Ausix DP7 package I bought I got the best deal I could find by working with Sweetwater give them a call you will not be sorry. Thanks Sweetwater for everything.
Lightweight, low cost, and functional. Can't go wrong with this stand.
I have several of these and have been pleased with them, they've done well for several years. Definitely recommend for regular use, and they're so affordable I don't mind if they take a beating.
works well for my set up
Works as it should. Nicely designed.
Best stand .ever .
Finding myself unexpectedly needing a couple more mic stands for recording, I order these and couldn't have been happier. Needed some stands for flute players and a regular mic stand wasn't working - the boom was just the thing.
Everything I expected and more! Thank you Sweetwater for your promotions and low price's! The candy is good too! Thanks again!
Lightweight mic stand. Good for supplement if you need an extra but will not stand up to regular gigs. One tighten screw stripped firdtytime. Entry level stand.
Great Boom, multi purpose for sure
For a free bundle stand I'll take it anytime. Onstage brand is always a dependable brand!
The stand is a good value. It's lightweight and does the job sufficiently. Time will tell how long it will hold up.
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.
Probably the best mic stand for the price. 24.95 and free shipping.
Lightweight, sturdy, stable and versatile. Very reasonably priced.
Nice lightweight stand. Will creep a little if you do not lock it down tight but overall very nice.
Great Microphone stands, purchased 3 about 3 months ago to work with 3 Behringer Microphones that I use at home.
Comparable to other inexpensive mic stands. Adjusts easily. Seems solid.
I bought 2 of these for overhead mics on my drum kit. I like the ease with which they go together, and they are very versatile. Well worth it for me.
Its a mike stand!!! Performs as expected and set up is a breeze!
Just got a six bag set of these. Have only used them a few times but they are sturdy, well made, seem very reliable and were extremely affordable! If they hold up over time they may well be one of the best valuses out there.
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
What you see is what you get. It's not a ninja. it can be wonky in tight spaces. But it's sturdy, reliable, and easy to custom fit for your space.
One of the best purchases I've made in a good while. You don't need to keep the receipt.
I needed a cheap, easy to use boom mic stand and this fit the bill perfectly.
I was surprised by the quality of product for the price. It is excellent. In fact I am going to order another one for our church.
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!
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.
Good quality. Sturdy, durable.
Entirely functional, the base legs are a bit short for my taste, but works as well as it needs to.
Not much to say about a mic stand but its the right size and it works very well. Very steady and well built to last.
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.
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.
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.
All it's advertised to be, and a great buy. In weekly use, there's no doubt in my mind it will last my lifetime.
They set just right for my drum recording there going to work out great.
Woo hoo it shipped the next day and I had it within 2 days and it is in great condition to be used professionally for that tiny price :) yay
Boom arm itself is not the most secure out there, but it does its job. Everything else about this stand is very sturdy though.
In a special deal I usually expect a weak link but not here.The stand is more than enough for the mic and very substantial.Agreat package deal
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.
Works well for it's intended purpose. I have a small home studio and this has done everything I need for it to do.
Pretty good mic stand, its not amazing but its not crap, it works and holds up well, it doesn't break down too small, its actually quite long when broken down that would be my only complaint, it was too long to fit in road case
A well-built stand that is solid when in use and has nice adjustments to easily get the mic into any position.
The MS7701B overwhelmingly superceeds my expectations, durability and cost. Awesome!!!
light weight, but received as part of a microphone package, so good for an extra
These stand fall apart very quickly. Low quality. For me, they only work on the drums since we never touch the stands.
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.
Good quality. Have had mic stands before that I paid alot more money for and they were not as good. Sturdy. Serves my purpose well.
Sturdy stands, great look, light and easily moved. Exactly wehat I wanted and WOW what a price!!!! Of course the amazing Sweetwater service helps too!
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.
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.
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.
Excellent value for what I am using it for
Solid stands for the money. The true test will be how they stand up to street ministry!
Awesome deal!!! Keep'em coming!!
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.
Yep, it's a nice stand and works just fine... my point concerns Sweetwater... for several months now I've been talking to them about some mikes for my studio... I'm still working on getting the funds together but this place is PRO... all the way. Went to a Protools seminar... the cats there were PRO... all the way. The were real people, knew their **** forward and backward and were more than happy to talk about anything you might need or want to know about... or just swap war stories. A TOTAL JOY !
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.
