    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 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.

            lightly constructed

            By Layne Lindberg

            from South Dakota

            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.
