      Comments about Heil Sound HB-1 Steel Microphone Boom:

      I have to admit that this boom has and continues to hold up way better than I thought it would for the price point. After a year and a half now there is still no drooping and the springs holding strong. If there where any cons to it that might be that the springs MIGHT make some noise while re-positioning but given that I don't move it around much while recording it hasn't been an issue, though it may be something to consider. Overall, I am more than pleased with this boom and am looking to purchase another one for an additional mic in the future.

        Comments about Heil Sound HB-1 Steel Microphone Boom:

        When I saw it was made by Heil, and I saw the price, I assumed that this was a high quality product.

        It's not. It's thin, difficult to position correctly, and if my drummer yanks on it one more time, probably not long for this world.

        I should return it and buy the more expensive version that Heil sells. But we use it so infrequently, that it doesn't make sense to spend the extra cash. This thing will not stand up to daily use, so if that is what you need it for, you better pass.

        If it survives our next few practices, I will hold onto it in case I ever need it for some amateur recording.

          Comments about Heil Sound HB-1 Steel Microphone Boom:

          I bought this to replace an existing boom arm which had worn out with age and become noisy. I love this newer model, it is silent, sturdy and so far doesn't droop from the weight of the mic!

          Well-Made

          By Gerald and Diana Villa

          from Las Vegas, Nevada

          Comments about Heil Sound HB-1 Steel Microphone Boom:

          There is nothing shoddy about this microphone boom; the construction is heavy and functional, and the appearance is good. Other kinds of microphone stands have a fairly large "footprint," and because we do not have a great amount of floor space, this microphone boom is ideal.

          Comments about Heil Sound HB-1 Steel Microphone Boom:

          This product works fine however the vise could perhaps be perfected as I have noticed it moves when tightened to the fullest capacity depending on the surface.

          lightly constructed

          Comments about Heil Sound HB-1 Steel Microphone Boom:

          Don't really like the way it operates, seems to light and difficult to work with.
          Priced too high for the quality.
