I've needed some sort of stand for my Boss EQ pedal so it's within easy reach without me having to kneel down on the floor to fiddle with the settings. I have tried one of the cheap ones but they couldn't cope with the weight of the tablet holder (which I use as a holder for the EQ 20) and the pedal itself. I've just set up this stand (combined with the counterweight) and it's perfect.
The whole thing moves easily and (with the counterweight) it's really well-balanced. The base is really sturdy and it's heavy, as the description states. There's not struggling to tighten anything up to cope with the weight of the pedal and its mount. Everything feels... right. It just works. It's not difficult to move, it's stable, nothing is loose, everything is... it's just right.
It wasn't cheap, but the quality you get with K&M is exceptional. When you figure the cost of the boom arm itself, it helps justify the outlay. The counterweight is a brilliant addition, but adds about another 25-30% on top of the initial outlay. Not cheap, but exactly what I needed.
