Though a great looking mic stand and with a great balance and feel, it broke just a couple of months after I bought it, after normal wear. It looks and feels great though, so if you plan on using it only in the studio, go ahead and try it. If you plan on putting it under the rigorous strains of the road, it'll probably give out soon.
Nice to sing with, after all a mic stand is a companion on stage, it is almost 1/2 of the "singer's stage presence".
Cast Iron base does not tangle the mic wire at all and feels good for me to stand on one of its cast iron legs (any of them) to increase mic stand stability while in close. Try this with any normal foldaway mic stand & you'll get it in the teeth. The extension gripper grips good too.
Warning though, do find the time to do a very good gluing job on the rubbery feet pads, as like mine, you could easily lose one or two, etc, pads, leaving this type of mic to pick up every noise from the stage boards, including all the drum kit & every step you & your band take, it could also include your PA speakers leading to reduced volume through stage rumble & feedback.
Be careful though, as the cast iron base can do a lot of damage if used with the wrong intentions.
