The new MST-C Microphone Stand design, you can quickly transform from a standard straight microphone stand to a fully adjustable boom stand in seconds. The patented boom storage allows the boom to be concealed inside the extendable upright shaft for use as a standard straight mic stand. The boom will quickly and easily adjust out to convert to a boom arm stand. No extra pieces or parts are required. Because of the 5 Disc, Anti-Slip Cam, the boom arm can hold up to 2 lbs. fully extended. The aluminum alloy base and durable clutch design make this your next and last choice for a microphone stand.
