Well, I've earned the cheap dummy award around here for sure.  I used onstage stands for several years.  To say I baby my equipment is the understatement of the century; just ask my head sound tech!  I looked for better stands, and ordered Gator stands.  They seem nice, but you really have to tighten them to get the booms to stay put.  I'm guessing that it is only a matter of time before they strip out.  So I broke down and ordered K&M (KM21090) stands. I wish I'd have done so a long time ago.  They're rock solid and I'm confident they'll last a long time... They cost a lot, but there's not much more embarrassing than having to replace stands during a show because they won't stay in place, or the dang knob falls off and a singer can't adjust it in the middle of a song.

Interesting!  I just ordered a couple to audition.  Looks like the "Baseline" 21070, but that's a very good price for it.

I would be interested to get your thoughts on these stands after you've had a chance to use them.  I wonder if they're as good as or better than the DR stands that GC sells for about $75 each.  I find it somewhat odd that there are no reviews on MF.

I'll make sure to post that, Tom.  I usually buy the K&M 210/6 stands (Topline with non-telescoping boom) for a little over $60 each.

I just purchased (shipment was delivered yesterday) six K&M 210/9 stands.  Mike Pyle had the best price I could find - $20.00 less per unit than all of the usual sources - Thanks Mike. 
These stands are rock solid (with a a good clutch system using leather(?) washers) and a huge step-up from what I have been using.
These should last for years!
