Great and handy, This easily handles a 1/2 boom (cut the boom down y'self), and I can stand closer to the mic w'out tripping over the usual 3 legs.
I play guitar too and have no problem with this mic & acoustic or electric guitar. Its a space saver for me with a sometimes 7 piece band on usually small stages.
I have a "Mic stand mounted monitor" (SRM 150) for bigger venues, this particular stand is a bit unstable with the monitor on top, so I keep my old folding 3 legged mic stand just for this, or there's usually a sound guy with floor monitors at bigger venues.
I always assemble this type of mic stand with "loctite" thread locker on the parts that need it, saves me chasing the mic round & round. "You must, please" super glue the little rubber feet into the Iron base, or they will fall out somewhere at a gig last week, lost forever & these stands are very susceptible to "stage rumble" & feedback without the rubber feet. Also being "unfoldable" & pretty heavy, other bands don't seem take them by mistake.
The round base rolls around in the back of my van if I lay it down, so I stand it upright on its rubber feet to avoid the rolling.
Bars, small venues, Massive concerts, this is great. I love mine and the comments "vintage mic stand" really do the trick.
