Comments about Heil Sound HB-1 Steel Microphone Boom:

Don't really like the way it operates, seems to light and difficult to work with.
Priced too high for the quality.

    Comments about Heil Sound HB-1 Steel Microphone Boom:

    I bought this to replace an existing boom arm which had worn out with age and become noisy. I love this newer model, it is silent, sturdy and so far doesn't droop from the weight of the mic!

    Nice Price-It works

    Comments about Heil Sound HB-1 Steel Microphone Boom:

    This product works fine however the vise could perhaps be perfected as I have noticed it moves when tightened to the fullest capacity depending on the surface.

      Comments about Heil Sound HB-1 Steel Microphone Boom:

      When I saw it was made by Heil, and I saw the price, I assumed that this was a high quality product.

      It's not. It's thin, difficult to position correctly, and if my drummer yanks on it one more time, probably not long for this world.

      I should return it and buy the more expensive version that Heil sells. But we use it so infrequently, that it doesn't make sense to spend the extra cash. This thing will not stand up to daily use, so if that is what you need it for, you better pass.

      If it survives our next few practices, I will hold onto it in case I ever need it for some amateur recording.

        Comments about Heil Sound HB-1 Steel Microphone Boom:

        I work in a radio production studio all day, where we have professional boom arms, and this one works just fine for a home studio. It's sturdy and can hold all but the heaviest mics with no trouble. The only thing that could make this boom better would be if it was just *slightly* larger. I had to clamp it to the side edge of my desk because it wasn't quite long enough to clamp to the back edge and still reach over my monitors.
