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.

I have lots of stands. I like Monoprice and wanted to support them by buying a couple to check them out. I think if they fixed these couple of issues they would be up there with the other $20-$25 stands.
The previous review stated his boom knobs secured okay, but I've tried 3 now, and they are all similar. I plan on putting a glob of RTV in the base on each side of the pins to keep them from falling out.
For $15, if you're just using it at home, or never moving it around will be just fine and great.
PROS: It's $15
It looks nice
CONS: The mic thread adapter at the end is not glued or attached to the stand, so you'll lose it the first time you remove a microphone.
The knob to lock the boom needs more washers between the metal, you have to squeeze the metal too tight to get it to lock in position reliably.
The pins that hold the legs in are not secure, they may fall out.
The boom arm threads that attach to the straight stand tube are not standard to all other mic stands. You will not be able to put one of these boom arms on another type of stand.
PROS: Great for my purposes in a home studio and cheapy priced.
CONS: Online description missing info
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
CONS: Microphone stand work fine mine showed up with a broken wingnut/handscrew adjustment piece. Maybe Monoprice can do me a solid and mail me that broken piece?
PROS: This is a good product. By the very nature - a microphone stand with a boom is a bit cumbersome and requires proper balancing and tightening. This falls within acceptable parameters but just realize that you will need to spend time properly adjusting and tightening...and yes, you will need to be firm. This stand will serve its purpose well in a recording studio. If you need an on stage mic stand for the aggressive hands-on type who wield it as partial pole vault and partial javelin, look for another mic stand.
CONS: The rubber has an odor which smells like used tires. It does dissipate over time.
CONS: Cheap, Doesn't stay tight
PROS: Really Inexpensive!
CONS: Fragile. Never gets tight enough.
I truly apologize for the issues experienced with PID 602520. If you would like, I can assist you in setting up an RMA for a replacement as we are still within the one year warranty for this mic stand. Obtaining the replacement would be of no additional cost to you. Please let me know if you want to proceed and I will get that started right away. Thank you for your feedback and I hope this helps!
