      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.

      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.

        Mic Stand Review

        Comments about Hercules Stands MS401B Transformer Tilt Base Microphone Stand:

        If you're looking for a quality mic stand that many features that won't break the band look no further. This is by far the best mic stand I've ever used. I play out about 8 to 10 times per month so my gear can tend to get a little beat up with transporting it in the back of my truck but this thing has staying power. Seriously you can't beat the price/quality.
        Seriously...I LOVE a few features this stand provides. The quick adjust feature is awesome and works very well. I've had a few quick adjust mics but this one is solid. I also love the way the feet adjust and allow different setups reducing footprint. Also if you're wondering if the normal tripod footprint is bigger than a standard three prong mic stand it's exactly the same.
        This thing is SOLID. It's a little heavier than your normal mic stand but it's only because it's so sturdy. This thing is tough and won't be knocked over accidentally.
        I researched this for about two weeks. I went to my local stores and they wouldn't even mach the price I got at musicians friend.

        Foolproof

        By Nathan Long

        from Undisclosed

        Comments about Hercules Stands MS401B Transformer Tilt Base Microphone Stand:

        I like the features of this stand.
        In case it's not obvious (it wasn't to me), the angle of this mic stand can be adjusted by just grabbing and moving it; nothing has to be loosened or squeezed. It has enough resistence to hold itself in place, but if you step on the base to hold it down, you can move it with one hand.

        The height, obviously, is also adjustable with one hand when you squeeze the trigger on the stand.

        Together, these make this much more foolproof than boom stands. I hope that will mean it's more durable. Most boom stands require that you loosen something to adjust, then re-tighten to hold it in place. People who don't know this or can't be bothered to do it will just grab and move it, stripping the threads and forcing you to tighten it even further so that it holds still. I have seen the tightening rod bent in an effort to make an abused stand hold still. The beauty of this thing is that I don't think anyone can do it wrong, so they can't hurt it.

        This isn't as adjustable as a boom stand - you couldn't use it at the piano, for instance - but for a singer/guitar player, the angle is enough to keep it out of the way of the guitar.
        Seems to be good quality, but I just got it, so time will tell.
