I frequently provide sound for events like prize givings, school open days and church events. Being able to use a gooseneck mic on a podium with this stand instead of a typical mic stand or other style of table stand makes everything much more presentable and neat.
Mostly importantly there is no loss of audio clarity.
Brilliant piece of kit, will be buying more!
If there is any criticism it is that it's form factor is perhaps a bit large, but in saying that, the weight ensures it wont slip or slide or get knocked easily as the rubber base and weight together hold the microphone in place really well.
