The stand came with lots of extra fittings for mounting it in different positions, (which I don`t use) I used three screws and attached the unit to my desktop about three feet away. The range on this is great. Wherever I move it, it stays there. Its easily pulled towards me and positioned any where along the neck or souldhole of my acoustic guitar when I am sitting down at the PC. My friend calls to my studio to record vocals, and Its adjustable enough to move the mic to where he is comfortable standing behind me when I am on the PC. The best thing about it is I can just push it away again, back into the corner when I finish recording, so no setting up or stripping down required. Handy for skype too! Also the locking devices on it can be adjusted for ease of use and tension.
I keep mine very clean and keep the springs and nuts lubricated , so its silent if I need to move it slightly during a recording session.
Ideal for a studio with limited space. Its just always there when you need it! The black powdered finish is beautiful and it looks very slick and professional. The stand came with mic cable running through the metal itself. I wasnt sure if it was a good idea at first, in case the cable broke, as it would be impossible to replace. But if it did it could be cut off easily and not seen, and any other mic lead can be used in a traditional way. Having said that, the cable that came with the unit is fantastic, very solid and good quality mic lead. I have been using mine for seven years without a problem
However it is larger than ecpected and therefore can't be permanently mounted in the limited space available (no fault of the product), the springs are very strong, perhaps that's a good thing but at the moment it doesn't want to stay where it's put and can't be locked in position, hopefully it will ease with use but at least it is up to the job of holding a condensor mic with shock mount and pop filter without suffering from the dreaded droop.
A Perfect Desk Arm
Easy to handle & neat .
The springs are a bit tight when you first get it, so it needs some breaking in (or a heavy microphone).
& you could always remove a spring if you use light mics.
Overall a great buy!
The stand is great but the included cable is just a gift really.
It hold my Shure SM7B securely and the mic doesn't cause the stand to drop at all.
The only downside to this stand is the cable. The SM7B requires a lot of gain and the cable with this stand is VERY noisy. I retrofitted it with a more expensive, high quality cable and neutrik connectors and this works much better. If you are using "normal gain" mics, you won't have trouble but if you're using a mic that needs to be cranked, think about the cable as a complimentary gift only.
All in all, a great stand at an outstanding price.
Very good quality and easy to use!
