"Quality Stand at a Great Price" submitted September 15, 2007

Back to Product Information
Feature: The rubberized knobs are great. Ease of Use: The single-knob adjustment on the boom takes a little getting used to. However, it grips the boom instead of using a knob with screw threads that can cause damage to the metal tubing. Quality: For the price, the quality is excellent. It is lightweight but fairly sturdy. Even though I sometimes have to add extra weight to the base, it is definitely light enough to travel with. Value: Good quality for the price.

"Designed to fail..." submitted February 23, 2010

Back to Product Information
Sound: Well, this stand lasted about a month. The pivot point for the legs and the material that keeps the legs in place is a very small amount of plastic. After a month of use, mine broke. When I look closely at this design, I find it incredible that ANY manufacturer would make something this way. It is DESIGNED TO FAIL! Buy something else. Feature: The adjustment knob is nice but it makes no difference when the stand is designed as poorly as this one. Ease of Use: Very easy to use until it breaks.... which won't take long. Quality: Why ANY mic stand would be designed with a thin plastic base is completely beyond my comprehension. Value: Again, it is designed to fail. Buy something else. Manufacturer Support: I've left a message for them but don't expect much. Its a cheap product that is designed to fail. I wouldn't want another one so I certainly won't go through the expense of sending it back to them.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us.
Sound: It's a mic stand, it sounds beautiful Feature: Actually, for just being a mic stand I'm pretty darned impressed. There is one feature with this mic stand I really like. By loosening the large, rubber coated knob at the top of the mic stand, you can simulaneously adjust both the angle and length of the top thing there. Quality: Not sure here because I've had it about 5 minutes. Seems pretty good though, we'll see. Value: It's cheaper than a lot of the other ones.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us.
Sound: Not applicable. Feature: Features are pretty standard, except it didn't include mic holders. single-knob adjustment thingy is pretty handy, but unconventional and takes a little getting used to. Quality: Overall, the quality of these stands is okay, and definitely better than your typical cheapo stand. But I don't like the way the legs are made; they have this U-shaped groove, and more than once I've snagged my fingers inside when trying to close the stand. Manufacturer Support: I've contacted Ultimate before to order replacement parts for speakers stands. They were helpful the time, but that was years ago.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us.
Quality: The product looks nice, but in all the years I have used bad stands, this is the worst. The Clutch on the boom controls the boom posititioning along with the pitch of the arm, and does a poor job. Even locked in as tight as possible the boom rolls with the weight of the mic. Even if the product worked and served its purpose, it wouldnt last more than a week or two even in a studio setting, much less on the road. Save your money and time and buy somthing worth it, not this. Value: It dosn't work, at all. Overall: I have returned this product and replaced it with a better low cost stand from AKG.
