This is an excellent mic stand for keyboard players, way better than a separate mic stand and really looks the part with the AX-48 keyboard stand as well. Stable and nicely adjustable. The only problem is if you're gigging with it you need to demount it via the large wingnut which holds the main body of the boom to the part which attaches to the keyboard stand. I used to screw the whole boom off each time, however it's quite easy to get it cross threaded and in the end strip the threads off. So now I'm on my second boom and have learned my lesson!
