Budget Boom Vocal Mic Stand Recommendation

Budget Boom Vocal Mic Stand Recommendation

I need a new vocal mic stand for studio use (preferrably with a boom) sturdy enough to use with a decent condenser (faux U67 style) mic.

The ones I've used until now have been these really old school Atlas stands that were probably designed for stage use but are so frickin' heavy they work just fine. Anyhoo, I need another one and I'm stunned at the prices I've seen on some of the pro models so I'm looking for a 'budget' model that I can trust. It does -not- have to be moved.

I have some old fixed stands I can use with a separate boom if they are sold on their own.

And if this helps with the price, it will be placed on one spot at left there (mostly) PERMANENTLY so I don't need casters or any of that.

Thoughts?

TIA,

---JC

What price range are you hoping for?

I would highly recommend the Ultimate Support MC-125. It's what I use and it can easily handle the heaviest of condenser mics. For a vocal Boom, don't take the cheap way out. Get something that will last and will stay put at the height level that you select. Other booms just do not fare well with condensers and go limp with the added weight.

I know you said you said you don't need casters but with the MC-125 you have the option not to use them.

Ideally less than $100.

I really don't even need the stand... just the boom arm, I think.

Thanks. That -does- look good. Especially if I could get just the boom portion separately.

Yes indeed, you can definitely buy the parts separately.
