An incredibly durable and sturdy mic stand.
I was able to suspend some heavy microphones in hard to reach places with ease. This mic stand put all my worries at ease of having expensive microphones sag/crash into an expensive drum-kit or grand piano.
I look forward to testing out these stands further by pushing them to some of their limits, but I feel their limits go well beyond what most will need. Read more
This provides huge flexibility anywhere less than their full reach. I expect if you do any long reaches, you may need to apply a sand bag for comfort, but the base is quite heavy as is.
I think this stand is perfect. However, be aware if you have to set up in a tighter space. The boom arm with the spin grip mic mount only collapses down to about 4 feet, which could prove awkward in tighter spaces. You could figure it out, but if you're only working with smaller spaces and not expecting much reach, you'd be better off with something like the 1100 version of this stand. Although they're on my wish-list for more gear, I haven't tested out the 1100s yet. But, you don't need the extra base weight and counter weight if you're not reaching with a heavier mic.
I don't think you can go wrong with Latch Lake products, and hope you have as great an experience with it as I have!
