    Comments about Hercules Stands MS401B Transformer Tilt Base Microphone Stand:

    This stand was great right out of the box. Setup took mere seconds. The vertical post is held between friction pads on the base, no tools needed, just set it and forget it. The stand comes with a mic clip, so no need to buy one unless you prefer a different style of clip.

    You can use the stand set to 90 degrees to the floor like a standard mic stand, or tilt it towards you at an angle, and that is the really cool feature. It has plenty of reach and height to clear your guitar and present the mic at a comfortable height without a boom.

    I would not recommend this stand for vocalist who like to swing their mic stand around or use it like a dancer's pole. It swivels back and fourth and is definitely more suited for folks who set their mic stand and don't move it around while playing, as constant up and down movement might loosen things up. It could be re tightened, but that would require tools.

    I don't know why nobody else has thought of this design before, it is just what I needed, and is great for guitar or bass players who don't like a mic stand right in front of them. No moving stands up and down and booms in and out, up and down. You can set this stand one-handed, on the fly with the squeeze handle. Try one, you will like it.

        I am using this stand to support a mic and a iPad. I was able to tighten the nut on the verticle swivel point to keep it from moving with the weight.

        Comments about Hercules Stands MS401B Transformer Tilt Base Microphone Stand:

        These are the best mic stands we've ever had the pleasure of using. We purchased three from the Guitar Center in Brownsville, Texas, two years ago (and "On Sale", too) and put them immediately to work on our first Rio Grande Valley music tour. For this current music tour of 20 shows, we thought it would be nice to replace our other On Stage stands (most now very flimsy) with two more Hercules stands. Again, the best quality & ease of function. Mic clip has an 'easy on' snap feature that's very handy (although we like the older version better).

        Overall, you won't be disappointed by these quality adjustable stands! We recommend very highly.

        Comments about Hercules Stands MS401B Transformer Tilt Base Microphone Stand:

        I bought this stand to use in conjunction with a boom to reach over my pedal board. It won't take a boom in tilt mode but the good news is...As long as you aren't over 6' 4", it should work fine. Built like a tank too.

        Comments about Hercules Stands MS401B Transformer Tilt Base Microphone Stand:

        First off, I LOVE the design of this mic. It's exactly what I need. I play some guitar but mostly sing so having the ability to tilt the stand at an angle whenever needed is a HUGE plus. The grip adjust ment is nice as well, overall I really love this stand.

        My only problem is after about 2-3 years of owning it, the stand no longer adjusts, it's like it rusted in one spot. I tried WD-40 and several other things to get it to move and it won't budge, even hit the top of it with a hammer, it moved it but didn't knock it loose. It is locked in an unusable state. A real bummer. For the somewhat high price, I really don't want to invest in a new one every 2-3 years.

        I also noticed that the threading didn't quite line up correctly so my mics were always off centered, I'd use the washer to help but it would inevitably come loose and the saddle would flop around.

        Hopefully this design has been improved upon. I don't know if anyone else has had these issues or not.

        Comments about Hercules Stands MS401B Transformer Tilt Base Microphone Stand:

        I kept bumping into my boom stand when looking up from my light control pedals. My line of sight wouldn't allow me to judge wher my mic was. This stand is in my periffrial vision since it leans to me. This stand also doesn't swivel awy from me if I bump it during performance. It was a bit lose when I first used it and fell into my chin but was easily tightend with a couple of crescent wrenches. Everyone that sees it wants one once they try mine.

          All that a mic stand should be. Been gigging with this for a year and a half I could not find anything negative about this product. Pefrect for pedalboard use unlike some boom arm that you have to constantly tighten. I recomended it to my other musician freinds. Looks great on stage. Would replace it if lost or stolen. Built to last

          Comments about Hercules Stands MS401B Transformer Tilt Base Microphone Stand:

          I bought this to allow me to use my mic on a stand that will also permit the use of my pedalboard instead of using a boom stand. Everything works well until I begin to really tilt it more than approximately 45 degrees where it tends to drop on down to the floor. I tightened up the screw as much as possible, but that may not be enough. I may have to add a pin to it after drilling a hole to lock it into a firm position. Otherwise, great concept.

          Comments about Hercules Stands MS401B Transformer Tilt Base Microphone Stand:

          Just wondered what a smaller footprint heavy base would be like: but there is no tip at all with the
          legs the way it is built. The hieght adjustment is fabulous.
          This is one handy stand. I havn't tried all posisions yet, I just got it. 4 gigs and no stinking boom in the way! If it holds up it will be the greatest. A friend of mine has one & said he'd had it for a year and it was still on top! Said he was rough on them, that was one deciding factor.
