Not a Top End K&M Stand

Joseph8049, 18.04.2015
I have a number of top end mic stands including Beyerdynamic GST500, K&M 21020 and 25950.

I had assumed this K&M 25900 would be of equal quality, however it is actually a bit of an anomaly.

It is quite easy to assume this stand is a small version of the top end 21020 and 21090, but this is not the case. Apart from the boom arm being from the top line range, the lower part definitely is not.

1. The leg tubing is thinner and lighter.
2. The rubber feet are the smaller ones found on the cheap stands.
3. The base is lighter and lower mass.

For this reason I feel I was somewhat mislead as the price matches 21020 and 25950, but it is just not to their standards.

I will probably eventually replace these with K&M 25950 or Beyerdynamic GST590 and sell them on as the low mass and lower quality components are not really "pro" and seem out of place. I am anal like this. Seems this stand is mis-categorised.

Also, anyone wanting this for micing kick drums internally should buy the K&M 25950 instead. This 25900 is too tall for that application.

All in all though, this is still a good stand. It is just let down by having the budget components mixed with the top line components.

Serious quality.

These mic stands are stupidly good.

I bought four around a year ago and they still feel brand new.

They can hold even your heaviest of microphones at a 90º angle without batting an eyelid.

Build quality is fantastic and the stands have a good weight to them. None of the joints loosen over time and have never felt worried about my mics on these stands.

Well worth the extra money over cheaper alternatives as you'll never have to re-buy due to breakage.

Miking up and recording a drum kit is a fairly complicated procedure, and this can apply equally to choosing the right mics for the job.
