See other comments for my overall satisfaction. Musicians Friend's free freight deal attracted me, and the customer service/speed of delivery landed me, and the overall experience with this fine company has won me over as my "go to" place for performance gear.
Needed two boom arms for a couple of stands from an inferior product bought from another vendor that included a Shure SM 57 and cable. The Mic. was good....the accessories were junk. I decided to purchase a couple of replacement booms (make sure you know the size of the attachment thread - mine was 5/8") from Musicians Friend. Delivered product was EXACTLY what I needed, the mic stands are back in working order.

A note to the wise....if you gig a lot, spend the extra bucks and get a good quality stand. The $20 cheapies are good for the home studio where they are never moved. But after one season of light gigging (by that I mean less than 25 performances) those cheap stands are trash!
Decent, very acceptable for the price, and the main failure point (the screw tighteners for the booms) were solid and beefy. Very utilitarian.
These booms cost what the entire stand cost originally (from another web vendor, who refused to address my concerns) but NOW I have two functioning microphone stands. Thank YOU, MUSICIANS FRIEND folks.

I got those boom because of the price and good reviews. I found 3 things about it that I feel are not so good:
-the counterweight isn't a weight at all. It's not nearly heavy enough to counterbalance a shure super55. I have to tie a heavier object to the end to counterbalance the mic (I use an Atlas weighted base stand)
- the extension boom is flimsy when extended more than half way. This forces you to slide the main boom up negating any counterbalance from the supposedly "weighted" boom. The set screw doesn't keep it from spinning 100% either
-the threaded stop ring on the mic mount is too big in diameter to use with the shure super55 mic. it interferes with connecting a cable on the shure super55 because of it's unique mounting. Luckily it is removable so I swapped it with a ring from another stand

If you need a boom that can extend fully and be strong and stable with good counterbalance for a heavy mic on a round base stand; this isn't going to cut it. If you just need a half decent boom for an average weight mic not fully extended, or on a tripod base stand, then this one should do fine.

    With limited space I was able to mic my snare drum. Two stage telescope makes it easier to get in tight places.

    Comments about On-Stage Stands Telescoping Boom Arm:

    This is a reasonable quality boom. The price is very good. My only beef is that it needs more counter weight when using it on a round base mic stand. Not the end of the world. Just be aware of it.

      Comments about On-Stage Stands Telescoping Boom Arm:

      The boom works fine for me supporting a fairly bulky large diameter condenser microphone. However, I don't need to extend the inner rod, and wouldn't be able to anyway since I've got it mounted on a standard weighted bottom mike stand. If you're planning to use it fully extended, you'll probably need a stand with wide legs. The clutch is certainly good enough to keep the boom in place for my set-up. As another reviewer reported, the counter-weight is really not that massive so that when extending the boom, especially with a heavier mike, you may want to add more weight to avoid boom sagging.

          Comments about On-Stage Stands Telescoping Boom Arm:

          Needed a reduced length boom extension for the tight space near my recording desk. Now I can keep the mic and stand setup permanantly and adjust the boom angle and length with ease. The telescoping section which tightens securely provides lots of added flexibility and makes it much easier when miking acoustic guitars and such. For this price and free shipping it is no-brainer and great addition. A must-have for any home recording space.

              Comments about On-Stage Stands Telescoping Boom Arm:

              This is just perfect for my performances. I sit when I perform and sometimes I play in small or crowded areas and this eliminates the long boom sticking out where it could be bumped and knocked over. It fits on my On Stage Mic stand and is easily adjustable to the length needed. It's also cheaper than buying the entire stand with the adjustable boom. It's easier to pack away since it can be shortened and that's a good thing for any musician who travels.
