Ultra-stable, Super-versatile Tall Stand

Whether you're recording in your studio or trying to figure out how to gracefully fit dozens of mic stands onstage, you'll wonder how you ever got along without the Triad-Orbit Triad T3 tall tripod mic stand. We appreciate these stands at Sweetwater because they're incredibly rugged and secure; they set up fast and give you more positioning options than you'd ever expect. It's easy to get your mics in the perfect spot, and the Quick-Change Couplers make it effortless to swap out mics. For maximum versatility, get the Triad-Orbit Triad T3 tall tripod stand.

Solid tripod legs provide phenomenal stability

The stability alone makes these stands pay for themselves. Unlike lightweight metal tube legs, Triad Stand bases feature solid metal legs. These legs are heavy and hard to move, making up for the added weight with heroic stability. Sweetwater recording engineers love the way you can attach your heaviest microphones to these stands, without worrying about them tipping. Our live sound techs also appreciate being able to place our Triad Stands center stage without worrying about over-exuberant performers knocking them over.

Individually adjustable leg angles for flexible positioning

Set each leg independently to one of four angles via foot-actuated ratcheting mechanisms. By ratcheting all three legs to the same height, you can comfortably overlap bases to get your stands right next to one another. That's something anyone who's had to mic up a tight drum kit can appreciate. Also, by ratcheting up only one leg, you can tilt your stand up to 65 degrees. This often eliminates the need for a boom. And since the base is weighted, you'll still get greater stability at a full 65-degree tilt than you'd get from a typical stand.

IO Quick-Change Coupler for fast mic swaps and more

All Triad stands feature the IO Quick-Change Coupler that lets you quickly and effortlessly swap out mics, booms, and other Triad-Orbit IO Components. It's made to interface with any Triad-Orbit IO Components that include hex mounting heads, but you can pick up additional IO-H Mounting Heads to outfit the rest of your standard 5/8"-thread booms, mic clips, and other mic-stand attachments. The minutes you save setting up will add up to hours before you know it, helping you spend more time recording in your studio and less time screwing and unscrewing mic stand adapters.

Industrial-grade clutches for secure height adjustment

No more drooping mics! With industrial-grade clutches on all their telescoping shafts, Triad Stands won't slip or fail on you. Once tightened, these clutches aren't going to move, even under loads that would cripple ordinary stands. At the same time, knurled metal clutch barrels make Triad Stands easy to adjust, so you never have to worry about locked up grip clutches or over-tightened thumb screws.

Triad-Orbit Triad T3 Tall Tripod Mic Stand Features:

  • Rugged, flexible, and extremely stable mic stand for stage or studio use
  • The perfect height for drum overheads, choir mics, and ambient room mics
  • Solid metal tripod base delivers extreme stability — ideal for heavy mics
  • Each leg has 4 ratcheted positions for up to a 65-degree pitch
  • Easily adjust legs with ratcheting foot-actuated latches
  • Industrial-grade clutch with knurled metal barrel for rock-solid grip
  • IO Quick-Change Coupler lets you easily swap out mics and IO Components
  • Buy additional IO-H Mounting Heads for your 5/8"-thread mic gear

Great Stand

Triad-Orbit is changing how I think about mic stands. After discovering them here at and seeing them at NAMM 2017, I was convinced that I needed to own and support this company. The T3 is a monster mic stand, sturdy enough to handle multiple Large Condenser microphones on an Orbit 2X/02X, tall enough to mic 10+ feet off the ground, and has built in caster slots if you want to get wheels for this stand, and roll it around. Combined with some Micro 1/M1 adapters, and the Orbit 2X/02X I've become much happier when setting up for a recording session, and it's a constant conversation starter when people see this thing set up in the tracking room over a drum set, or dual mic'ing a guitar cab. Highly recommended for anyone serious about recording and saving time on the front end. Buy the adapters and see how much time can be saved when auditioning different microphones.

More Than A Mic Stand

You won't believe how robust this stand is. They say you can tilt it; it's true because the thing is so well balanced, it refuses to budge. On top of that, it's incredibly adjustable. This has become my go-to mic stand.

Best Tripod on the Market

My first Triad-Orbit stand was a T2, and I was happy with it but looking for something a little taller for location recordings (choirs & orchestras). Now that I own a T3, I wish I'd bought it from the beginning. It's not just a higher T2; it's a completely different stand. It's bigger (wider diameter), heavier, more stable, and air-cushioned. I've used it with 3 (!) T-ES extensions to get single SDC microphones up to 12' in the air; I wouldn't necessarily endorse that use, but it's definitely possible. While it's not as stable as a lighting stand, the tripod base is lower-profile in regards to visibility/distraction, which is a big consideration for location recordings. The air-cushioning is huge; now that I'm used to that, I can't believe I put expensive mics on stands without it. The only drawback is now that I'm using air-cushioned stands exclusively, I've forgotten that other stands don't have it, and I've had a few mics come down too quickly when working with other people's gear. What can I say, I'm spoiled now.

Great gear

Okay, so they cost more than your standard mic stand, but keep in mind, they're much more than just a mic stand. Triad-Orbit have created a fantastic modular system for you to use—not only for your mics—but your cameras and lights, too—and who knows what else. All of the modular pieces are solid, sturdy, and easily adaptable to any angle. But, my favorite thing, now that I have a Triad-Orbit hex adapter on each one of my mics, is how easy I can change out mics without the fuss of unscrewing and rescrewing a mic holder. Of course, the downside to this system is that you'll want more pieces—but that's a good thing.

best stand ever

I've had many and worked with diff mic stands over the years. Triad-Orbit has to be the best in the world at making great microphone stands.Makes sense , some mics are well over a few grand, we should have a stand that looks and works as well as the Triad-Orbit stands.Thanks again, David
