The tripod base on the SB9600 can be adjusted for additional height or spread further apart for greater stability when projecting the boom further from the base.

It's can also be extended high enough to use with overhead mics - in fact some people use it in a live setting for overheads even though it's primarily designed for studio use.

This stand is very useful for overhead miking with its tall height and long boom. It's mentioned by a number of reviewers that it's used often for miking choirs both on stage and in studios. Its counterweight has a lot of mass to support and balance heavy microphones. Reviewers were impressed by its sturdiness and well-made build.


Since it's quite big, some owners suggested it's not suitable to use for a small home studio because it takes up so much space.


If you want a mic stand for installing heavy microphones to mainly use in big venues, or in the studio, this is a good choice. There are also additional options you can see in our guide to The Best Mic Stands.
