The world's largest in-production precision microphone boom stand.
Manley purchased the seminal design by George Starbird plus the associated tooling and made some important refinements to this mic boom stand that make it perfect for recording studios, movie sets, and other applications where a heavy-duty boom is necessary. Improved features include a heavier, wider-spread base which dismantles conveniently for transportation, plus a variable-weight counterbalance which can be filled as needed with sand or lead-shot enabling the Manley Starbird to be used with very heavy older ribbon microphones or cameras.
Vertical rise and fall is managed by air-damped compression valves, making the boom gentle for precious microphones. Silent mobility is provided by the mic stand's heavy-duty solid rubber wheeled Darnell casters.
The problem with these Manley Starbird booms is that they last forever! Thousands have been manufactured since World War II and most of them are still in use in every major music and film scoring stage.
The Starbird microphone boom stand is fully manufactured in Manley's own machine shop. A labor of love¦
