    Comments about DR Pro DR259 MS1500BK Low Profile Mic Boom Stand:

    Let's be honest...a lot of times mic stands are an after thought. They're not glamorous, they don't make you louder or give you new tones...they've got a rather boring job to hold a mic in place. So it's real easy to say to yourself "the cheap stands will work just fine". If you're going to set a stand up in your bedroom or garage and never move it...maybe. But as soon as you start throwing it in a hardware trunk and dragging it around to shows, that's when you're going to find our why it was so cheap.

    These stands will hold a mic where you put it, and not move. Period. They're the most stable tripods I've used (and I've used a lot). You can put a fairly heavy mic at the end of these, have the boom extended, and not worry about your mic crashing to the stage floor during a performance.

    And seriously...does it really make sense to put a kick drum mic that costs a couple of Franklins on the end of a stand that is being held together with gaff tape? When your cheap stand fails during a show, you'll forget all about the money you "saved".

    I bought 2 of these for the purpose of mic'ing up a snare and HH on a rather large (think Peart) drum kit. I was so impressed with them, that I bought two of the full size stands/booms for overheads.

    Like my dad used to say..."Expensive is only expensive one time. Cheap is cheap everytime you use it."

    Quit chasing your mic around...check our the DR line of mic stands.

        Comments about DR Pro DR259 MS1500BK Low Profile Mic Boom Stand:

        I usually buy the cheap mic stands. This mic stand costs significantly more than I usually spend. Folks, it is worth the extra money. The difference in quality is obvious right away. The only issue is, read the dimensions of the stand before you buy. It is small and short, focused on special purpose mic positions.

        Comments about DR Pro DR259 MS1500BK Low Profile Mic Boom Stand:

        I have become a real fan of the DR Pro after K&Ms became so scarce. Before I pontificate on the design flaws, let me first state that it is a very high quality stand. These stands are billed as "Low Profile" yet the central "trunk" is pretty high. This is due to the fact it contains an extension to raise the boom higher. In my opinion, defeating the "Low Profile" aspect. Why would you want to raise a "Low Profile" mic stand higher? This means that in practice, I have to use the boom to "drop" the mic into position, thereby taking up too much room for applications such as micing a kick drum, snare bottom or an amp. I took this stand to a machine shop and had the clutch tension knob, trunk and extension cut in half, doubling the cost of the stand, but doubling its effective uses. Color is excellent for stage.

          Comments about DR Pro DR259 MS1500BK Low Profile Mic Boom Stand:

          We bought this microphone stand for two purposes (depending on the act).

          It is the right height to act as a bass drum microphone stand. When we use it for that purpose, it is holding a Shure Beta 52A kick drum microphone. That mic is NOT light. This stand works well to hold it.

          It is also the right height to hold a SM57 when you are miking an amplifier. Its short height means it doesn't stand out.

          I probably should have brought two.

          I own 4 of these mic stands and they keep working just as great as they did from day one. I have purchased other compact stands and they break and don't hold as good as these.

            Comments about DR Pro DR259 MS1500BK Low Profile Mic Boom Stand:

            After a couple of weeks of use as a snare mic stand I'm pretty impressed. It is easily adjustable, stable and remains where I positioned it. I'm using it in my home studio so it doesn't get broken down and set up a ton and I expect it will hold up for years. I play live and see a bunch of stands at different venues that can't be tightened to stay in place and I would love to see DR stands in those situations.

            I think the money to value ratio is right where it should be and I will definitely try one of the DR full size mic stands and see how it fairs against the On Stage Stands I currently use.

              We own and orperate a pro studio in Los Angeles, CA.
              These are great little stands that can put up with all the day to day abuse that we can give it. And, they keep coming back for more. We just keep buying more of them because they are perfect for the all around smaller jobs like snare drums and guitar cabs. Yes, it's not cheap. But, you get what you pay for in this instance. These things last forever. Get some today. You won't be disappointed.

                I figured it was a gamble buying this Dr Pro brand of mic stand over one of the standard studio usual suspects. I have to say, I'm impressed! Overall it feels very solid. The legs have a nice snug lock when expanded. I expect it will stand (pun intended) up to regular use and abuse for a long time. I'll likely purchase more Dr Pro stands in the future!

Quality materials and workmanship make for an extremely stable and versatile stand with the ability to make precise adjustments that will not drift. I always try to work with the best possible quality that I can afford and DP stands fit that description admirably.
