I bought this stand to be my main acoustic guitar/instrument mic holder for sitting/standing performances.
I should start by saying that this stand has served its purpose and has done its job well. Now, having said that, there are certainly a few things that have steadily declined in the quality department. The main fastening grip for the telescoping part of the stand began to crack (and fall apart) over time. For some reason this has happened to all of my Gravity mic-stands after a certain period of time. Maybe I've just been unlucky. I was also surprised at how quickly the boom arm began to sag/slip when anything a bit heavier was put on, but I'm sure that this stand wasn't necessarily intended to hold anything heavier than an sm7b at a consistent 45 degree angle.
The stand, however, is very practical/adjustable, has great features, and the overall build quality is not bad at all. In hindsight I maybe would have chosen a competitor, but I've generally been quite satisfied with the brand and am willing to purchase this and other products again.
Solid 8/10 from me.
