The perfect organ microphone stand
Blickfanger on 2013/11/25
This stand is exactly what I needed to be able to put my microphones at great heigth, in a stable manner. The leg collar is pretty low, so you can even set it up for a concert where visual distraction needs to be limited to a minimum.
Inside the bottom of each section there is a strong spring that is meant to protect the tripod from banging down when you loosen the locks. I had to remove them from the stand, as they would produce a ringing sound at certain strong organ tones. Removal was quite easy: each collar can be loosened with an Allen wrench and then you can take apart that section. If you keep the stand upside down the spring will fall out of it. Just be careful that your fingers will not get squashed between the section collars after you have removed the springs, as it will now shove in further. (Good thing of this is that it is also smaller to transport.)
