Never been excited about a Monitor Stand until now
In the 11 year I have been playing live, Ive had to purchase many monitor stands and most of them are simply, heavy, bulky and not constructed with well thought out design. Well I watched many reviews on this stand, and took the leap of faith and got 2 of these guys. The first time we used them for a gig was funny, we put the monitors on and released the hydraulic and watched the stands push up the monitor on it own...about 4 times before we started set up our other equipment. They feel like the most solid and comfortable to open, close and hold (theres a grip at the top). These have been nothing but great so far. Ultimate Support makes some quality gear.
