    I've used boom stands almost all my life as a musician...some 48 years and this boom attachment is the best I've seen or ever used. I really like the counter weight that helps center the stand from wanting to fall over. Top notch quality went into this stand and looks and feels and performs like it's 4 or 5 times the price. If you are looking for a boom attachment or replacement, this is the boom for you. Trust me, you won't be sorry.
    You have complete control of mic placement with an ease of operation. A lot of years of making this kind of product as gone intio this, you can tell.
    This is by far the best built boom I've ever used. I've had many that have failed and you can tell it's not well made for the price you pay. This stand however is built very well and I can tell you that it looks and feels and operates like a stand worth 10 times the price.
    You get a high quality, well made, and well thought out boom attachment for the price. You can't get a better stand for the price.

    We invested in 6 of these booms for our church's music ministry. They're used 3 times a weekend by 3 different groups. I noticed by the 3rd week that the telescoping arm on a couple was not holding firmly, allowing the microphone's weight to swivel it downward. At 6 weeks, the tightening function on one stopped working. When I pulled the arm out & inspected it, I saw that the plastic tightener had broken off completely! We bought these more expensive booms because we'd had a lot of trouble with really cheap hardware (stripping screws) on less expensive brands. These look & feel great, but ultimately are proving to not be worth their premium price - very disappointing.

            A great boom for me since I play both guitar and keys and sing so it provides great ability to be re-positioned on a moments notice. Just what I needed.

              Comments about Ultimate Support ULTI-BOOM-TB Telescoping Boom Arm:

              I needed a short boom and this looked like the best option for the price. It is the perfect size and very very sturdy. However, I find that the round adjusting screw handles do not work that well. They are difficult to tighten and (you guessed it) more difficult to loosen at the end of the night. This would be a perfect boom had the company used more of a traditional wing-nut adjuster...Still, I would recommend this stand...just be aware that you're in for a tug-o-war!

              Comments about Ultimate Support ULTI-BOOM-TB Telescoping Boom Arm:

              This boom is pretty pricy but, it functions beautifully! What that means to me is I can forget about the location of my mic, once it is set. That may seem like only a small problem, but I think if you sing while you play an instrument, it's a worthwhile benefit that can be enjoyed for a long time. In that case, it's worth the money, if you can afford it.

                This is a follow up review. I was having some problems with the two ergonimic knobs tightening the tubes so they would not move. I contacted customer service and, they are sending me two new knobs that are slightly longer threaded than the ones that came with the boom. Also I was told that they will be retooling after NAMM to remanufature these in a different configuration and that I would recieve two of the new ones also FREE of charge postage paid! Great product,Great customer service! I expected nothing less from Ultimate and, they came through perfectly!

                I purchased one of these to go with the oversized based tour stand, this makes a super combination. You couldn't ask for a more professional,very stable mic stand combination. This stuff is meant for the long haul and, will serve you well. I own a lot of Ultimate products, some that I've had well over 30yrs. and, still going strong. Their warranty is great, I have some of their older speaker/light stands and, some of the parts needed replacement. They sent what I needed FREE! That kind of warranty is hard to find. Very Satisfied with Ultimate gear.

                Comments about Ultimate Support ULTI-BOOM-TB Telescoping Boom Arm:

                Easy to use. Put this on an Atlas MS-12C stand. Balance is good, but I like to make sure the rubber footing is right below the boom extension just to be safe. I play drums & sing so this gets extended almost fully to reach me. Just purchased this Aug 2012 - used it on 1 gig so far. I noticed a slight give in the telescoping boom part in that I could wiggle the mic up & down maybe an inch or less, but it didn't slide in or out at all once it was tighted down. The part that screws to the mic stand was solid. There was no looseness to any other parts. Other than this little imperfection, the boom is quiet and relatively easy to position and stays where you put it. I'm very picky about my gear working RIGHT, but like most of you I'm also on a tight budget. So far this piece has been a good buy for the money.
