Worst product I've ever bought. Period.
21.02.2016
I've bought MANY great stuff from Thomann over the years, including a lot of budget stuff (that included some Millenium stuff which turned out to be great) but this stand is probably the worst thing I've ever bought. Sorry folks.

The most important bits that bear most of the pressure (the boom) that should be made out of alloy or metal are made of plastic. I originally bought somewhere between 20 and 30 of these stands some time ago, some of which I still have packed like new somewhere. I took out 8 of these stands for a job and ALL the booms broke on first use. Tighten them a bit too far and the plastic snaps and breaks. Never got around to use the rest of them as they aren't trustworthy.

While live sound isn't the kindest of situations on any kind of equipment, I have used stands from other manufacturers that have lived up for the job for years. These stands sadly did not live up to the job and I've basically given some away to anyone who needed an emergency stand, along with a warning that it's a disposable stand.

Terrible product overall, even for the money. Sorry Thomann!

Quite good
Sheen , 04.05.2019
I have been using this particular mic stand for home recording for some time now and have to say I am quite happy with its performance. There are few thing that might cause some annoyance and issues, but nothing that can't be assessed.

When talking about quality, it does feel solid and strong. The main metal pipes seem great quality and in my opinion could handle rough traveling, etc., however, some of the plastic adjusting nobs do seem to be a bit iffy. Upon tightening, they seem to give a bit of a squeaky sound, which is not a big problem or anything, but at the same time might not tighten the adjustable parts quite well, which can cause a bit of an annoyance. I did have issues when attaching the microphone where, if I were to record acoustic guitar while sitting, upon lowering the microphone stand, the mounting place would not always be able to hold the full weight of the microphone and might start to slightly shift the microphone downwards. Some adjusting fixes it, however, not the best thing to experience.

For live performances and home recording this will work well, however, make sure to not get a really heavy microphone as that might cause some minor setting up issues.

Sturdy, well-built and great value.
markodarko, 13.05.2014
You do not need to look for another mic stand. Don't even bother.

Over the years I've had the mic stands with the round heavy bottoms (like most of the girls in the pubs I played in), straight 3-legged mic stands and booms.

Most booms fail. It's a fact of life. They get to a point where you just can't tighten them enough to stop mic-boom-droop and then half-way through a gig you'll be playing guitar and singing only to find yourself bending your knees more and more through the song as the boom slowly gives way.

I've not experienced that problem with this stand since I bought it in 2007 - it's 2014 now(!). Are there "better" stands out there? Well, I guess there are, there's certainly heavier ones out there, but I've come to the conclusion that heavy doesn't necessarily equate to sturdy, and heavy definitely doesn't equate to helping your back at the end of the night when you have to pack up.

I've used this stand when playing guitar and singing backing vocals and for that it's superb. A boom mic when playing guitar and singing is a must over a straight stand. Makes the whole process so much easier. Plus, it means you can put your stand's feet around the floor monitor and then adjust the boom to fit where you're standing instead of moving the monitor around the straight stand.

There's not a lot more to say really other than after 7 years of wear and tear it's still going strong, doesn't droop and packs away nicely and is light to boot.

Highly recommended.

Daemon, 02.06.2019
Microphone stand broke in the middle after the third use. No moving around too much, no playing with it, it just broke when screwing the microphone on.
Also, the legs of the stand were unbalanced, it was always very wobbly and unstable, they didn't seem to even have enough strenght to hold properly for long periods of time.
Would not recommend...

glad with this one
andré barba ruiva, 23.05.2019
really glad with this stands. i don?t use them very often (i bought 5), but i have them for 3 years (used them both concert and rehearsals) and none of them has any problem. the feature i really love about this stand is that you can use 2 mics directly. the lower mic connection you can only adjust in height, but its interesting solution to pick up voice and guitar for example with just one stand in case of need. there is only one part in plastic and overall construction is actually quite good for the price.

Not brilliant but Okay
MattRimmer, 23.05.2019
Use the product for singers in church. The stand gets moved on a regular basis as different people use it every week. After about a year the signs of use really showed with the metal screw bar snapping off. Good value for money but not ideal for regular use.

Universal & Cheap
JCBurnett, 03.12.2017
This mic stand is much better quality than other brand cheap mic stands of the same type. Just make sure you don't overtighten things and ruin the threads or break some plastic parts. Get a feel for how tight things need to be to be perfectly stable.
It can hold two mics which is a great thing. On a certain drum setup, you can mic the snare and the rack tom using just one stand.
This stand could be very useful at a very low price and functional in the home studio if used appropriately.

Get a better mic stand
Overdrive Studios, 28.04.2018
I bought several of these for my studio, and they didn?t last very long! The stand itself is fine, its the boom arm mechanism which wears out and breaks very easily. Not a single one has survived, so now I have the mic stands but had to throw the arms away, not exactly ideal. I could technically have contacte Thomann and probably made a fuss and got replacement ones or my money back, but to be honest it was my own fault for buying cheap. No one should sell or even make a product that is so easily broken. I bought a K&M one and its so much better! Much more stable. Do not buy this mic stand! I'm not a picky guy and use millenium guitar stands, drum stools, mic stand for kick drum and other stuff, but this mic stand just does not cut it. Avoid! The delivery was of course fine :)

Simple, light, small, totally useful
GuitarAM, 18.03.2019
I bought it to transport it to rehearsal locations. It was the right choice: constructed very well is very easy to mount. It's a big thing that became small thanks to its telescopic arms. Very light but it remains very stable even at higher position. Best Buy.

great quality for the price
Vhic, 22.01.2019
Build like a tank. I use it only on my studio and works perfectly. Adjustment are very good. Well balance. Very good for travel and gig because it can turn into a small pice that fits on your backpack. Highly recommended

Consider spending a bit more
O_OBrien, 04.12.2018
I use this stand about once a month to record a rapper. During recording the stand stays in place and the mic doesn't get touched as it can swing slightly from side to side. It's not a bad mic stand, but the connections seem a bit loose, despite regular tightening. It does the job, but if you're conscious of stability, maybe look at investing a little extra money into it.

Cheap and unreliable product
Jazzin? Productions, 31.01.2019
Got a few of these in mic bundles. Simply not worth it. Cheap make (two broke within a couple of usages). Save your money and buy better quality.

Heaventeo, 01.01.2019
I use it for a long time, no probles. If you treat it as you should be, you;ll have it for many years.We don't play football with things like that and we don't press so much the arm screw.

Good but be careful!
Chronos, 28.09.2013
This is one of the cheapest stands you can buy, and with that in mind, you cant expect miracles. What you can expect is an okay microphone stand that will work well if you treat it with care.

It can be extended fairly high and its boom arm reaches quite far, although it doesn't weight very much and will need some balancing if putting a heavy microphone on it.
The locking mechanism for the boom arm is a little flimsy, and will break if over tightened.

Conclusion:
If you don't over tighten the parts, don't need it to be extended it to its highest and furthest point possible, and use a relatively heavy microphone, this mic stand will do well for you.

boom arm fitting is not tough
Martin T. 705, 19.12.2018
The connection where the boom arm attaches to the stand broke pretty early on for me. It is a weak design. But I still use the stand wihtout the boom arm at like that it works great.

Great idea but poorly executed = Poor product
Stefan S. 733, 10.08.2013
I bought a few of these MS-2005 stands for use in our band studio since we were on a very tight budget and discovered that the hinge part where the boom meets the vertical part of the stand is made out of extremely cheap and brittle plastic (!!?) which cracked and pretty much fell to peices within a couple of months while being set up permanently on our drumkit (without really even moving it and also being very careful knowing that it was plastic).

I made a reclamation on a couple of them so far and got a couple of the same as replacement, but i havent really bothered with the other stands although they all have broken in the same way.

I really liked the idea of these stands though since you can mount two mics on the same stand and also if you have more than one of these stands you could borrow a boom and mount more than one boom on the same stand to save space, but this idea was poorly executed unfortunately and i even spoke to Thomann about it and suggested that they change the hinge part to metal instead.

I have now replaced the boom parts with high quality booms from K&M (K&M 211/1) instead which can be bought here at Thomann since the vertical part including the cast metal base seems to hold up very well (we have had these stands for a few years now). I have been very satisfied with this solution, but the MS-2005 as delivered is an extremely poor example of a boom stand and not recommended by me.

Elegant but robust angle stand.
Stephen7400, 26.08.2015
I used this for the first time today to mike-up a singer guitar player. The guy was singing and playing at the same time and I wanted to get the maximum from his mouth and the minimum spill over from the guitar. Fortunately this stand was very easy to angle into place so I could get just the right orientation on the microphone to do just that. I liked how easy it was to set up because the manufacturer had used different handle-styles on each adjustment screw so it it easy to figure which adjusts what. Also from an aesthetic point of view, while a very robust, sturdy piece of kit, the stand is made of quite fine tubing, so it is light to carry around and being painted black it would be most unobtrusive in a stage setting. This is the best angled microphone stand I've owned by a long chalk and available at such a very reasonable price - I will certainly be ordering more of these in the future.

DOES NOT ROTATES THE ARM?
pedromau, 23.12.2017
I bought 7 of these.
I knew the construction was cheap, but I opened 3 of them, and none of them rotates the arm. I'm feeling a bit stupid because I can't rotate the arm, and I don't know if it's my fault or if the products are damaged. Either way, it's the 1st stand I can't rotate, so there's something really wrong with this.

Will return all of them for sure.

DO NOT buy this.

The worst Mikrofonstativ.

Its cheap
Olivér, 15.06.2018
I have bought this two years ago. It still works, but it was never really super stable. I use it only in my home studio, it does the job in this environment. But if you really want to rock out passionately...well its not meant for that.
The quality is not very good, a lot of weak plastic parts, I wonder how long they will last. But hey, its CHEAP!

Functional
Gain_Badger, 16.12.2014
I need to have a microphone held still at the height and angle I want. Once set up, it'll stay in position until I need to move it again.
This is probably a good use of it. I have some doubts about the boom/upright locking mechanism as it is plastic plates with a rubbery/neoprene-y ring held under compression. I'd imagine this is the weak spot, and indeed other reviewers allude to this. For me, this is for mic'ing cabs. The option allowed by the additional screw mount atop the upright is used for a room mic when playing about at home.
Overall then, I have doubts about the longevity of the boom clamp, but no doubt at all that it is a bargain stand for the penurious, has some flexibility, is very stable, is quick to set up ( careful about tensioning! ) and tear down and if I ever learn to sing in key/at all/ not flat etc, or take to stage announcement, I'll buy another. I look after kit.
EDIT:
The clamp longevity issue reared its head. I was using the stand, doing some backing vocals ( in key ! ) when I knocked the stand over. Yup, clamp snapped. It's still holding together, but for how long I don't know. I'll just replace the clamp with a stronger one and get on with it.

2 for 1
Kevo, 20.07.2017
I needed a spare stand for my home studio as I didn't want to have to rifle through my gigging gear every time I needed a stand. I ordered this as it was cheap and it wont be moved around to much setting up and breaking down.
I was pleasantly surprised when it arrived. Good quality with the option to add a mic on the upright or the boom. i messed around with it and discovered I could leave my condensor with with the micscreen onthe upright and my stereo set on the boom. Excellent value yet again from Thomann!
