A Get What You Pay for Quality Boom Arm
I can't afford to purchase cheap equipment. Years of experience taught me (the hard way, of course) that you can buy quality once or cheap multiple times. This arm is definitely "get what you pay for" and definite quality. Rock solid with VERY HEAVY counterweight. I have a heavy stage mic and there is no fear of "stand tilting" with this one, not even at full extension. I load in/out almost daily for shows and this arm will likely be handed down when I die having just been through a gazillionth show again. Sure you can purchase the cheap ones.....and it will do a show........or two....maybe even several. But when you have equipment like this your performing confidence stays where it needs to be, on you and your performance, not worried over some equipment fall or failure. If you are on the edge of choosing this one......you can stop......and just get it. Worth paying quality price for a quality product. Sweetwater's service, shipping speed and ease to communicate with is awesome. 2 Days and I was gigging with it.
