Microphone Stand with Boom
Whether you need a mic stand for the studio or for the stage, this Microphone Stand with Boom from Monoprice is the ideal choice!
This stand features a heavy-duty folding tripod base with a base width of about 25". The stand can be adjusted from 40-60" in height and the 31" boom can be adjusted for both angle and extension, so you can place your mic exactly where you want it. The stand uses ergonomic plastic clutches to secure the base and boom in place, plus a traditional twist clutch for height adjustment. The stand includes a pair of cable management clips, which helps reduce clutter in a crowded studio or on a crowded stage.
Microphone Clip sold separately.
- Heavy duty tripod metal base
- Ergonomic plastic adjust clutch for easy height adjustment
- Boom length: 31in (80mm)
- Height Adjustment: 40in-67in (100cm-170cm)
PROS: this stand had all the quality that you get from higher end stands, but it is reasonably priced and very light weight.
CONS: can tip over when boom is extended out fully
PROS: Sturdy, Lots of Adjustment
PROS: Good Quality, Easy to use, dependable. Great studio mic stands
CONS: I had to tighten the part that holds the mic clip to the stand because the first time I used it I needed pilers to get it out of the clip. So I tightened that part to the mic stand and now I have no problems. Also the first time I order these mic stands (3 years ago, I think) the base had a pin that held it together that fell out all the time. But I haven't had a problem with these new ones.
I had low expectations of this product and my concerns were certainly confirmed. I would not recommend this product for even light duty use.
CONS: very poor quality base material
Anyway, these stands aren't the sturdiest or most robust on the market. You won't be repelling more than four or five stage divers before the metal starts to bend. But for a simple home studio or non-equipment-smashing rock band, they'll do just fine.
For this price, you can't beat them. There is some nice attention to detail that you would not expect at this price level. The screw knobs on the main pivot are contoured to your hand, making it easy to torque them down. This is important, because I have big, fat, heavy microphones on them, and they don't droop or slip once secured.
Boom extension is likewise pretty smooth, though stiff at first. After a few weeks of use, it's much easier.
Height adjustment twist-grips are very secure.
The base is heavier than I was expecting, which is a very nice touch. The legs swing freely, making it easy to move the stand with one hand.
Bottom line, at this price point, you need to manage your expectations, but Monoprice will probably still exceed them anyway.
PROS: Great construction for the price
CONS: Considering the price, none, really
CONS: Broke the first time I took it out of the box the plastic insert on the bottom collar by the tripod legs pulled right out and broke the first time I tried to extend it. Really bad. Also the boom is attached with non standard small threads so can't be used as a straight stand when needed. a lot of artists will not accept a straight up boom as a straight stand.
