The most acceptable $50.00 stand I have found is the On Stage 9700 series.  They have three models, a telescoping boom, standard boom and sans boom.

They have some real weight to them,  some type of pneumatic damping on retraction, a metal cast base and a nice oversize lock nut.
I have had some 9700 series stands and they are a good choice. They also have a counerbalance on the arm. But the lower level OSS stands are junk.

Does anyone know why this K&M boom is not for sale in the US?

Maybe they don't want those cheap durable mic stand customers... ;)

k&m aint cheap, but very reliable. I think the boom is a spare part, about $20-25.

My church is taking a gamble on the On Stage MS9701B+ for their choral mics when the K&M rebranded AKG stands started to lose the boom screws, so far it works and feels rugged.

So an update to my post; the leg housing knob is not tightening anymore, essentially the shaft is touching the floor. Not really a dealbreaker for me but is for others.

I always found Atlas stands to be pretty close to indestructible.

Atlas is good for everything except the boom clutches.  Unless something has changed they will fail fairly quickly.

Gotta love MS20 round base setups. 

There is a reason K&M is found is just about every large/medium operator mic stand trunk.

Atlas MS12 with a KM 211/1 boom.  Industry standard.  MS20 for keyboard or drum vox where the boom will be at full extension.  Those were the days...

Nurse will be along with my meds soon... ;)

I define the extra ass the MS20 brings as “headroom”…

Cheap ≠ durable. It's an oxymoron.

Check out the samson BT4 boom stand , really heavy duty stand.

I own a large inventory of k&m 210/9 and they are all failing at the crimp where the threaded insert is installed. When I brought this issue to light to K&M they pointed me to a parts book and distributor where I could buy replacements that were back ordered and not available, and will probably fail the same way. Never again
