A Pro Stand
Needed a boom stand for studio work. Looked at several lower priced stands, but decided to go for the SB36W. Definitely a heavy duty pro stand, all my other stands run and hide when this thing comes out. Easy to assemble, air cushioning helps with adjustments because the stand is heavy. Rollers are sturdy and work well, definitey need them with the weight of the stand. The boom really gives you a lot of reach. I use this stand with a Reflexion Filter. It works well, but need to add additional 10 pound counterweight to be able to fully extend boom with the Filter attached. Any less of a stand and you might have problems if you use a similar setup. My only dislike is the mic boom is in 2 sections and uses a coupling to connect the two parts, the coupling limits the distance that the boom can be retracted. Very happy that I spent a little more and got this stand.
