Does exactly what it's supposed to do

Fine, solid, and durable. The mic stand is perfect for when I'm teaching voice lessons. It holds the mic without problems and I've yet to hear any vibration come through when I've used it for quick recordings.

The only con is that you must make sure you have some material (cloth works best) to put between the base of the mic stand and the desk or table top as the anti-vibration material has a tendency to leave marks (especially on parquet flooring type surfaces). This warning is specified in the mic stand documents that come in the box.

Overall, it is very, very good.
