Strong and stable

I got this to replace a cheaper mic stand that kept bending under the weight of my condenser mic in its cradle. I only use it for this mic and mostly keep it set up.

Pros: It has a great weighting, the mechanisms are all brilliant quality and strong enough to bear the weight of a heavy mic.

Cons: If you were to be taking it round places just for an SM58 or such like you'd probably be better with model 27105 (which I have for that purpose), as it is lighter, but still well made.

Love the quality of K&M products, had this one for over a year and it will last for a long time!
