Thank you very much for this, helpful to see it in action. Just to make sure I am not misinterpreting some of the various combinations which are possible with the Manfrotto stands, extensions, etc. would you happen to know the specific part numbers for the various elements of the whole setup (stand, boom, etc.)

Many thanks!

Manfrotto 270BSU Stand

The AEA Boom incorporates the Manfrotto 123 Pivot and possibly the Avenger Alum 35 stand.

The stand and boom are awesome. The stand comes with the universal head. If you get it you can add various impact or avenger booms that are not too expensive.

The boom is from AEA and is no longer available.

Wonderful, thanks very much!

Out of curiosity, have you used a comparable system from K&M? For example, stand model 20811 and boom 21231. I'm planning to get either this or the Manfrotto one sometime this summer...

I never used the k&m. It seems really nice. My rig can fly some sophisticated structures which I have used.

I use the Manfrotto MA1004BAC, the Avenger (Manfrotto) 0045B (pictured in my multi boom surround rig pictured on the previous page here), and the K&M 20811. They're very different, with the 1004BAC lite duty, and the 20811 taller and heavy duty.

You're welcome to try them out Luke if you drive down to Marshfield.

If anyone's interested in a stand that'll get your mics (and/or camera) up to 23.9 feet or 7.3 metres, here's your solution. Nice wide footprint for the feet, and 3 levelling legs. Ideal for organ recordings (if you insist on height for these !)

You'd need to find out your importer/distributor...or it might be cheaper to buy direct or by Amazon, I don't know what their distribution chain is ? I think the brand is known in A/V circles...maybe start with the company website and work outwards. I downloaded a very comprehensive PDF catalogue of their product range, and they're Taiwan based (good to support the 'other China' !)

In reply to a price query on the YouTube video comments section, they say "thanks for message. Please contact us by this e-mail address : [email protected] for further information"

Here's their product page: http://www.grip.com.tw/index.php?opt...=80&Itemid=101
Company history: http://www.grip.com.tw/index.php?opt...d=9&Itemid=134

Nice that it folds down to 174cms and comes with a carry bag, weighs 11.3kg

Their website quote $599.

It is like the Manfrotto 269 but not as substantial and a little less $.

for example the kupo’s footprint is ~43” and the Manfrotto’s footprint is ~68”

Here in the Netherlands the Manfrotto 269hdbu seems to THE standard for organ recordings.
And only €329 at Thomann’s.

That’s the one with one leveling leg and the regular multi receiver on top
