Good balance and adjusts easily-suitable for any application
This is a good-quality mic-stand, It has a solid construction and is well-balanced. It is suitable for any application but probably more so for vocalist who might need slightly better quality stand-vocalists' stands tend to be knocked or pushed around a bit more than a mic stand that is in a static position (ie drum/amp mic etc)
I really like the unusually large soft-grip handle for adjusting the height-It tightens and untightens very easily but remains firmly in position once adjusted. This has been a problem with some stands I have previously owned-The stand locked in position and could not be tightened or untightened without having very sore hands afterwards.
For anyone considering buying a stand for a vocal mic I would recommend paying the extra rather than going for a cheaper model. Microphones are expensive and you definitely don't want them to crash to the ground because of an inferior stand-which this is definitely not.
