I have two of these Atlas Sound stands and boom kits that I use in my home studio. I use one set up for a piano and the other for guitar/solo vocals. I couldn't be more impressed with the quality of both the stand and boom along with the cost. The set up is quick and is light weight, but extremely sturdy. This one stands above the competition, big time! (see what I did there ;)) I highly recommend this stand for a home studio or even if you gig.
