Sturdy but not that handy in cramped studio spaces
Bought two of these stands instead of the ones with the telescopic boom I already owned. They're not that practical if you want to mic a guitar cab inside an isolation box or booth; a telescopic boom would prevent the end of the boom hitting the side of the box/booth thus giving you more room to manoeuvre. These stands might work better in a live situation maybe. I like the round base of the stand though; feels sturdy and you'll be rid of those clumsy legs.
I use this when recording acoustic guitar and mic'ing guitar amps. When I use it with my condenser mic I have to strap a water bottle to it in order to stop it tipping over. I don't need to do this when I use a SM58 style mic. The build quality is excellent, apart for the cable guide which broke when I tried to put the cable through, you probably should try to slide it off the end and not pop it off as intuition will make you do.
