As the title suggests, this is a great little stand. I got it as a combo pack with an e609 guitar mic and this thing made that purchase even sweeter. It's heavy and very well made. I could not believe the flexibility of the boom, as it has all the standard adjustments as well as a 3-section telescoping boom. It will get my guitar mic exactly where I want it and will try it with my kick drum mic next. The only reason I gave it less than "5" for value is that I'm not sure I would've paid the sticker price if purchasing it on it's own...but now that I have it, I can tell you it's worth every penny for such a good investment towards such quality gear.

The stands seem heavy duty and capable of handling large microphones. However, they suffer from an inferior design, where it is possible to pull the boom directly out of the stand base. If you try to insert the boom back into the knurled knob and force it down like I did, you will break the plastic collar inside that is used to tighten the shaft against the base. My stand is now unusable.
If you do buy this and accidentally pull the boom out, unscrew the knurled knob completely and remove the plastic collar before inserting the boom back through. This will save you money.

    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:

      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.

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

        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.

          Built to last forever and feels it. 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.
