The K&M 210 series is known for its reliability.

Despite being around for over 30 years, the engineering behind the product still holds up today.

The 21021 is a tripod and boom variant of the 210 series with a taller vertical adjustment point and a lower center of gravity.

Features:

  • Single piece boom
  • Steel tubing
  • Zinc die-cast base
  • Boom length: 41.9"
  • Height Adjustment from 44" to 79.1"
  • Weight: 12.96 lbs.

Pros

Many owners, particularly studio engineers, say that they own at least two of this model for studio use because of its reliability and vertical adjustability. They report that the stand balances well even with a full boom extended while mounting condenser microphones. This makes it exceptional when mic'ing overheads for drums, or choirs, for both live and studio applications.

Cons

One user reported that the brackets may slip. This is usually because of over-tightening.

Overall

If your studio or venue has high ceilings and you want to set your overhead mics as high up as possible, the 21021 is a stellar choice for these applications.
