It holds my mic up..side down. Which is actually good.
G-Evans, 30.04.2018
For the price i didn't expect much but having the smaller version as a bass drum mic stand i knew milennium stuff is usualy decent in spite of the low price.

The metal mechanism on the boom is definitely more durable then the even lower cost plastic series meilennium offer however in my specific use case i have experienced some stability issues.

i'm using it probably in the extremes of what it is made for. it's at it's full height with the boom arm out straight to the side. As i have the stand behind my drum throne, with the boom over my head. Also with a long gooseneck attached to bring the mic around and down in front of me.
At these angles and with the extra weight the boom droops a little over time, and i've noticed with the heavy gooseneck there is no way the mechanism to clamp the boom pole will ever tighten enough to hold this setup at any angle other than hanging straight down, but i need it to hang straight down so thats fine for me and it would certainly be expecting a lot from it to do anything but that.

I also need to be able to swing the whole thing off to the side when i don't need it and so the straight stand part of the mechanism deals with this fine, i was worrried it might come loose and drop down but so far it hasn't. I do however need to weigh the feet down with sandbags to be able to do all of this without it just tipping over, but i fully expected that.
For a practice room it is all that i need. if i was gigging with it i would probably buy a much heavier duty stand that i know is rock solid in every way.
For the price i can't complain about how well it holds up.

Not very recommended
Heka, 09.01.2019
I have a couple of these and I have gotten them in sets with microphones and I must say, if they weren't so cheap I would stay away. The tightening is kinda wonky and I have broken one as a result of overtightening beacuse it wouldn't stay in place. For micing amps and, to a degree, drums they do their job okay after you have somehow gotten them were you want them, but for vocals I recommend a quality stand. Quick small changes are not ideal with this stand. Also, for more heavy mics, like Shure SM7B, you can't bring the boom very far of center or it'll just drop.

If you are actually reading reviews of stands, you probably want a better one.

It is usable but don't expect professional quality
JustinasK, 25.03.2019
Well, it's not the best stand, but it does the job if you only use it for light studio aplication. Made mostly from metal, which is good, however the clamp is hard to secure and you need to turn it really well if you want the arm to stand in the position. Also, when you secure the arm in horizontal position it still has a bit of vertical movement to it (the end of the arm lifts a few mm up and down, because it is only secured by a single screw which makes it move a little bit inside the housing, which is just a little bit loose). The vertical pole is not very straight as well when secured, because the bottom screw (near the legs of the stand) makes it lean a bit to the side, when the screw is completely turned - it could look a bit strange for a vocalist, if he sang standing up, but otherwise its merely cosmetic problem.

If you're going to use the stand with a condenser mic you should definetely buy a shockmount because you are going to experience a lot of unwanted noises from this stand. I am not a professional, so hopefully I will use it ok with a bit of attention.

The screw won't tighten the adjusted hight of the stand.
I think I overtightened it even if I vas very careful.
This happened at the first use.
I bought two stands. The other one is so far ok.
I know it's cheap, but it should work anyway.
I dont recomend this stand at all.

Accident waiting to happen
Stefriet, 03.04.2019
This tripod comes with the 'Rode NT1-A Complete Vocal Bundle' but it's not very suitable for use with this microphone. The microphone is too heavy and the tripod is too wobbly. I only use it with the microphone very close to the center of mass as it will fall over if I don't.

Also, even when I have the screws on the tightest setting I can manage, the rods will still move around, flipping your microphone over during recording.

Lastly, the manual mentions that you shouldn't put the tripod on your floor as the rubbers may stain it permanently. Why not use a different non-staining material?

For the Shure SM57 bundle, with which this stand also comes, some of these problems don't arrise, as it is a much lighter microphone. But I'd still only give it two stars for use with that microphone.

Yes, it's a cheap product, but I wouldn't call it a bang for your buck.

Best for it's price
Bored, 02.06.2019
I've been searching for a cheap Microphone stand. And finally i chose this because I can mount a microphone, pop filter and mic-screen at the same time. So it does it job and I love it. With this micstand i can set the microphone in any position, so it's quite comfortable. The only thing i didn't like is that several parts are shaking even when every wheels spinned properly.

Excellent mike stand
Stam Athens, 03.06.2019
IN mid 2000's bought some of them for miking up my drumkit as they were pricey and I still used them on today without any wear signs. Super durable for their price, rock solid and of course ver ylight to carry them over a gig and also forgot to mention on how easy they are when deploying them ...

Just okey
Piotr Samek, 20.05.2019
I bought those stands just to have something to put the mic on at my house. I didn't expect anything solid/very good quality. And this stand is just ok. As long as you have a concrete floor, you don't jump but just play it should do the job. But, if you need something good quality, easy-handling and solid, I wouldn't recommend it.

Thin, does noot look durable, but works perfectly fine and serves the purpose!
Kovacnica, 14.02.2018
If you need a heavy duty everyday workhorse for live situations, this might not be it. That said, however, this stand does what it claims to do. It stands, handles without fuss, everything on it is honestly made and designed.
We use it as studio stands, that are supposed to be set and not touched anymore. For now, all the joints hold well, practically standing in an un-optimal position (long lever) for a month without moving, or sliding.
I would recommend this stand as an additional, not moved often stand without any regrets.
If you need a hardy mic stand you will probably need to pay a little more.

PROS
- lightweight
- over-delivers for the price
- works as promised

CONS
- not for heavy use

A little wobbly
Adonis Storr, 07.11.2017
The microphone stand was the one thing we saved money on from the home recording studio setup. While the metal is very firm the main upright shaft has an unnerving wobble, certainly not something you want holding up your very expensive microphone. As long as you don't touch it it should be OK though - I don't imagine it falling over unless I was recording a drunken or uncoordinated musician. If you're on a very tight budget then this is OK, otherwise I would go with something slightly more expensive to ensure a more rigid stability. Will probably end up using this for a cheaper dynamic vocal mic.

Ok for home use, some faulty construction
Florian4355, 25.02.2014
This stand has two flaws: First, the arm with and the part with the pivot ist screwed to the lower part, what causes it to be very loose and rotate easily if the plastic nut underneath it ist not tightened enough - which is nearly impossible. It works best to turn the whole arm an hold the steel rod tight.
Second the knob on you use to fasten the arm is made out of thin plastic, contains only a thin nut and the thread of the axis cuts itself into the plastic behind the nut. Mine broke after a few days to pieces, so I replaced it with a better knob. A butterfly nut would also do the job properly.

Broken after 3 months
James007, 15.03.2019
I usually trust millenuim products but this has failed already. I think we've done about 6 gigs with it over 2 months and already the thread on the boom extender has threaded and come loose. Only very light use as our singers don't move the stand around much. Dissapointing but I guess you get what you pay for. I'm going to try it with a new screw or possibly re-thread it.

Not good enough
RiccaFerr, 06.06.2019
The first junction (between the feet and the vertical tube) are not that stable.
For recording purposes might work fine, but for live gigs I don't believe it would last longer.

Toma(n), 14.03.2019
Nice microphone stand, I recently bought few. There is not much to review about mic stand, except one thing - it could be a bit more stable. This can probably be achieved with slightly longer base legs.

All in all, it seems ok, material is ok, screws are ok.

Ionlab, 04.04.2019
OK stand not a lot of weight at the bottom but with proper placement it will remain stable. Paint will soon wear out at the places where the screws hold everything together, but for the price...Just do not overtighten

Low price, low stability.
Alex Mik., 20.02.2014
I've ordered this stand together with a Røde NT-1 to record some vocals at my little bedroom studio. Assembling it was pretty easy and took not longer than two or three minutes. However, as soon as I tried to put the NT-1 and it's shockmount (weighing about 326 g) on it, the stand would simply not stop falling down. No matter how I set it up, now matter how stable it looked at first, after a few minutes it would crash down. Luckily, I managed to catch it every time before it hit the ground and something was damaged. Not recommended for heavy (or expensive) microphones.

Uneven legs
Mr.skewdy, 02.02.2019
One of the legs goes lower than other two. As a consequence, the stand skews to one side. Probably a manufacturing defect, but still not cool at all.

Cheap and flimsy
UTF , 11.12.2018
Feels like it's made out of bendy straws. Doesn't hold my snare mic in position for longer than a few hours before I have to adjust it again. You get what you pay for.

A stand that doesn't stand
YoungJack, 31.10.2018
The bottom part, the one that should make the structure stable, is not stable.. the legs move and they won't stay stand.

But, if you find the right position and you dont touch it too mouch (like in order to record instruments, or a very quite singer) it is fine.

Does what it's supposed to.
Zak Rahman, 25.04.2018
I love products like this. I bought this for home studio use.

Pros:

- It works.

- You can figure it out without instructions.

- It's reliable.

- It's good value.

CONS:

Not tested or used in a live/touring environment. I cannot comment on transport wear and tear or a vocalist getting emotionally unstable and throwing it about.
