Overall, these are good stands, not great, but good. And that's good enough for me.
Don't listen to others saying this is a bad stand. For the low price, I'd say you get more than what you pay. The only way it wouldn't work for you is if you intended to swing from them and expect them to support your weight. Something they, obviously, were not designed to do.

As far as being stable, holding your mic and being adjustable, lightweight and easy to transport, they are guilty on all accounts!
Sure there are some plastic parts, these are not intended to go on tour or be heavily used by roughians in a pro studio, they are a value priced item for the home enthusiast. The downgrade to plastic in this case just keeps the price low. They are still fully functional and work well for their intended purpose.
Value!? Heck yeah! For a low price, as I've said, you get more than your money's worth. I can't imagine spending 5 or more times the price for an item just so it can have metal parts for things that I don't need it to withstand. If you are touring, YES, buy the more expensive brands, but if this is for home and light use, they are perfect and worth every penny.

I needed two, extra mic stands (sans booms) to mount a couple of small personal monitors for our band. I was surprised at the slim pickings out there for just a mic stand without a boom. But I finally found a basic stand for a good price at Musician's Friend and ordered a couple.

All in all the stand appear to be built well, however I noticed when both stands were set up and positioned next to each other, they weren't both exactly perpendicular to the ground. The reason for this was that the tripod legs were slightly "off" when fully opened. In all fairness, this is such a minor observation that it's hardly worth commenting on.

However, the "glaring flaw" that I mentioned in the heading refers to the way the main tube is flared at the bottom so that it doesn't slip out of the base. Most quality mic stands have a uniform and gentle flange at the bottom of the main tube so that it flares out to prevent it from slipping out of the base. This mic stand looks as though someone took a pliers and peeled back about three, 1/4" areas at the very bottom of the main tube so that it would flare open to prevent the base from sliding off. This method causes the base to "catch" on the edges of these flanges when trying to breakdown the stand for storage after having been used. It takes a few seconds to work the base - which needs to be slightly rotated to clear those protrusions - which is aggravating.

When I have some time, I'm going to grab a pliers to try to adjust those areas to see if I can streamline the breakdown process.

I would probably recommend these stands to a fellow musician but would definitely add a caveat.

    Comments about Musician's Gear Tripod Base Mic Stand:

    Ok so maybe a scratch. But for real, it accidentally fell three stories off my roof today. The H4n didn't make it, but this mic stand is still kickin. The legs aren't even bent, everything still tightens up fine. I can't even believe it, it's nuts.

    I must say: WOW! I kind of threw it in as a joke ("it might get handy"), and I must say: I ain't laughing no more. It's not expensive at all for the product it delivers, it works GREAT! And I must say, it does look rather dandy.

    I used it to mount a Roland Cube Monitor and it was very stable.I left mine at a gig the other night so I am going to order another.Great value, just be careful with the plastic screw base. Do not over torque or it will snap like a "cold carrot."

    My good friend let me use these for our band. Wow. They are nothing fancy, but they did the job and kept from being knocked over(even though my band and I jump around and hardcore all over the stage!) But yeah, they are affordable, they last, and they look AWESOME!!!! They are just the coolest thing you ever did see because the are sleek, modern, and beautiful. I like tripods, forever my good friends. bye now.

      Comments about Musician's Gear Tripod Base Mic Stand:

      I bought a boom a while back and this stand looks like I bought a matched set. Since I am only working at home currently, something space-saving, quick to set up and stable when in use is essential. The "tilt or lean" I've seen mentioned in some of the other reviews is, imo, a feature rather than a design flaw. The stand is meant to lean toward you when in use. The stands with a heavy round base make you "belly-up" to them unless you use a boom so you Still have to angle a pedalboard to one side and are standing nearly against the stand. With this stand, you have some extra space because it reaches toward you slightly and you can comfortably angle a pedalboard on your right or left. Used the way I do, the only way anyone would see the slight lean would to be standing to the left or right of the stage.

      The three "crimps" at the bottom of the stand strike me as a simple way of doing something necessary quickly and cheaply. After setting up a couple of times, I no longer gave them any thought...

              Comments about Musician's Gear Tripod Base Mic Stand:

              To clarify, I would only recommend these with the stipulation that they are suitable for light duty use only.

              I bought 2 for use as a portable rear-projection screen support. I raise the top extensions fully, drop cut-to-length 3/4 inch electrical conduit over the extensions, hang the screen, and secure it at the bottom. The whole shebang is about 9 feet high by about 7 feet wide, and the stands provide plenty of stability for indoor use.

              The stands didn't stand quite straight at first, so I "adjusted" the leg stops by setting each stand down firmly on the floor, and now the poles are vertical. They are easy to set up, take down, and transport. The adjustment clamps and base center piece are plastic, so use caution when tightening them. For what we need them for, and for normal mic support, they should last a long time if handled with reasonable care.

              As always, you get what you pay for. For the price, these aren't bad.
