    Very Sturdy

    Atlas booms are the very best for all studio and live applications. The clutch is strong enough to hold heavy ribbon mics, and they're made out of very strong materials which will last a lifetime. If you need serious stands for your expensive mics, or are tired of replacing those cheap guitar center saturday specials that you'll end up replacing in another year, then go with any product by Atlas. We've had Atlas stands here at Capitol for over 50 years, most of the stands from the Sinatra sessions are still in use today.

    For some reason Sweetwater doesn't carry the full line of their products, but if you go to www.atlasmicstands.com you'll see they're are lots of different floor stands, and boom attachments for various applications.

    Heavy duty but has it's limitations.

    I work at a venue that has several of these Atlas mic boom stands, and while they are very rugged, there are some drawbacks to consider when buying these. These are very heavy with the counterweight, and as such need a wider, sturdy base than average mic stands. They've fallen on me on more than one occasion. Another drawback is that with the single arm it makes using it for shorter distances more difficult than telescoping arms, which cuts down on it's versatility as a stand (which is crucial, IMO). The last problem I've encountered is that the piece that holds the pole in place (not the whole boom, just the pole) will come separated from it's housing, so it'll stay locked on the pole but be loose from the joint. This has happened to multiple stands.
    This probably would be fine for a studio where space management isn't an issue when placing stands and it only sees a moderate amount of use, but I would not suggest using this as a go-to stand for touring or venue use. Money would be better spent on an entire stand than just this boom
