I use this in my computer setup and it holds a rather heavy mike. The stand has no problem holding it in the wanted position, no matter what position I have tried. The clamps that comes with the stand gives you flexibility in any desired mounting position.
I have this stand in my studio for a few years, and its the first thing poeple comment on. It looks really professional with my Rode NT1A mic, and K&M Ms 180 pop shield.
The stand came with lots of extra fittings for mounting it in different positions, (which I don`t use) I used three screws and attached the unit to my desktop about three feet away. The range on this is great. Wherever I move it, it stays there. Its easily pulled towards me and positioned any where along the neck or souldhole of my acoustic guitar when I am sitting down at the PC. My friend calls to my studio to record vocals, and Its adjustable enough to move the mic to where he is comfortable standing behind me when I am on the PC. The best thing about it is I can just push it away again, back into the corner when I finish recording, so no setting up or stripping down required. Handy for skype too! Also the locking devices on it can be adjusted for ease of use and tension. I keep mine very clean and keep the springs and nuts lubricated , so its silent if I need to move it slightly during a recording session.
Ideal for a studio with limited space. Its just always there when you need it! The black powdered finish is beautiful and it looks very slick and professional. The stand came with mic cable running through the metal itself. I wasnt sure if it was a good idea at first, in case the cable broke, as it would be impossible to replace. But if it did it could be cut off easily and not seen, and any other mic lead can be used in a traditional way. Having said that, the cable that came with the unit is fantastic, very solid and good quality mic lead. I have been using mine for seven years without a problem
