Cheap durable mic stands
« on: May 22, 2013, 09:47:20 pm »

Any one have a cheap reliable option?  I refuse to buy another dozen of the garbage On-Stage model.  Seems like every part breaks or strips in 2 months.  I usually try and track down a bunch used, but the markets seems a little dry right now and I need them quick.  I was looking at the Quik Lok A-300.  Anybody have an experience with them or a good recommendation?  I'm trying to pick up 6-7 of them and keep my budget down around $200.

Thanks!
Justin

Cheap and Durable don't go together when talking about mic stands.....as well as a lot of other things.

Which pretty much tells you what any other thread will summarise - buy K&M!

Yes.  Learned that the hard way.  These seemed like a great deal at the time, http://www.amazon.com/On-Stage-Stands-Mic-Stand-Package/dp/B0002M3OUY - if you order them - be sure to put them on Amazon "Subscribe & Save" for monthly automatic delivery!   ;D

Yeah there's absolutely zero point in buying cheap stands and it ends up being more expensive and frustrating in the long run.

Absolutely.  As others have said, Atlas round bases and straights, K&M booms for professional use.  If I had my 'druthers' there would be at least one MS-20 big round base/straight for Elvis.

This is one of the best "buy once, cry once" situations to be found.
