Pros

This stand is small and lightweight enough to carry around. Most musicians found it easy and straightforward to assemble and de-assemble - a handy trait for some who also use it in their live performances. It’s also quite well constructed, very stable and rugged.

Cons

One reviewer pointed out adjusting the tilt mechanism on the boom arm takes a bit more effort than expected, though the upside of that is that it doesn't droop easily.

Overall

This is a good choice if you are looking for a portable mid-height/mid-level boom mic stand for miking amplifiers and live instruments. There are some more highly rated options that you might also like to take a look at which you'll find in our guide to The Best Mic Stands.
