I use the Millenium DS-30 as part of my recording workstation with a fairly small and light condenser mic. The stand is very strong and steady once the legs are locked into place. It is quite heavy which makes it good and stable. It can also be extended slightly for adjustment. It will work fine as a floor stand for amplifiyers also. Great product great price. The only reason it got 4 stras for quality is because the lead clip snapped the first time I used it.
