Great value

I don't have experience so I wanted something good but cheap. I stayed away from the cheapest products because they didn't seem reliable enough. This is a great option for the price conscious buyer. I use it at my home studio but I believe it is sturdy enough even for gigs if you don't abuse it. It's legs could've been just a bit longer for added stability, but overall it is an excellent product with great quality and value.
