The Atlas Sound MS20E is a round-base, straight mic stand designed for stability.

It features a large round base with weight distribution towards the edges and an integral air suspension system to prevent damage to mics when accidental height adjustment drops occur.

Features:

  • Oversized base with edge-concentrated weight distribution
  • 3-Piece clutch
  • Integral air suspension system
  • 7/8" and 1 1/8" dia. cold rolled steel tubing
  • Height Adjustment from 37" to 66"
  • Boom Length Adjustment: 4" - 27"
  • Weight: 14.00 lbs (Manufacturer spec), 12.25lb (User-checked weight. See Cons below))

Pros

"Heavy". "Stable", "Built like a tank" are just some of the words reviewers used to describe the Atlas Sound MS20E. The heavy-duty clutch system also gets praise for its stability and long-term durability.

Cons

One user noted that the actual weight of the stand is 12.25lb. While not exactly a negative with regards to function as a mic stand, it might be important to take note of this when using it to support other things like studio monitors as having the setup top-heavy might result in instability.

Overall

The Atlas Sound MS20E is a prime example of a stable mic stand with excellent long-term durability and safety features like the air suspension system for peace of mind.
