I like the features of this stand.
In case it's not obvious (it wasn't to me), the angle of this mic stand can be adjusted by just grabbing and moving it; nothing has to be loosened or squeezed. It has enough resistence to hold itself in place, but if you step on the base to hold it down, you can move it with one hand.

The height, obviously, is also adjustable with one hand when you squeeze the trigger on the stand.

Together, these make this much more foolproof than boom stands. I hope that will mean it's more durable. Most boom stands require that you loosen something to adjust, then re-tighten to hold it in place. People who don't know this or can't be bothered to do it will just grab and move it, stripping the threads and forcing you to tighten it even further so that it holds still. I have seen the tightening rod bent in an effort to make an abused stand hold still. The beauty of this thing is that I don't think anyone can do it wrong, so they can't hurt it.

This isn't as adjustable as a boom stand - you couldn't use it at the piano, for instance - but for a singer/guitar player, the angle is enough to keep it out of the way of the guitar.
Seems to be good quality, but I just got it, so time will tell.

The stand is very sturdy and well designed. The ez up and down is great, however the hardware doesn't fit my Shure 55 mic. There is no room for the hookup cord to go past the ez hand grip. I am working with customer support at Hercules and Guitar Center for a resolution. We will see what happens.

    Comments about Hercules Stands MS401B Transformer Tilt Base Microphone Stand:

    This is made well but will not work for many. If you use a pedal board the leg restricts you from getting the mic close enough to use correctly. The ability to tilt towards you is not enough. Your pedal board is likely to be placed on top of that support in order to get close to the mic. For that feature alone this is not recommended for a musician that sings and uses floor pedals, effects. The novelty of quick adjustment and a solid feel looses its advantage there alone. If you do not play and instrument or use floor pedals this should work for you. I bought the guitar holder a few years back that I loved but it lost the ability to lock up because the cam that applies pressure is plastic and has worn down. Bottom line is if you are a working pro and want to use this gear daily, rehearsing and gigging full time, find something else because this is more of a semi pro, hobby quality item in reality.

      Comments about Hercules Stands MS401B Transformer Tilt Base Microphone Stand:

      These stands are actually fun to use. No boom needed, just tilt it back toward you and it stays. They fold up quickly and set up quickly, too. And the extension mechanism is very smooth and precise. The overall quality is really nice, although I've only been using them for a couple gigs. We'll see how they last, but so far they're awesome. Just wish they weren't made in China. C'mon Hercules, your already a little pricey, but even still, I'd pay a little more for a 'made in USA' sticker.

          Comments about Hercules Stands MS401B Transformer Tilt Base Microphone Stand:

          I was tired of fiddling with boom stands, and the pedal board was difficult to position with tripods, etc. With this Herucles, you can one hand adjust the neck and the stand can be leaned forward and it is over the pedal board and the board can be positioned with ease. For me, it folds and stows (in my speaker stand bag) very easily. We will see how it holds in the long run, but so far, it has been very effective and handy

          Comments about Hercules Stands MS401B Transformer Tilt Base Microphone Stand:

          I really believe this product will be very beneficial in stage set-up at some music festivals we are providing sound for. We have been working with the standard mic stands but after only a few shows I find this Hercules stand to be more adaptable and much easier to operate.

                Comments about Hercules Stands MS401B Transformer Tilt Base Microphone Stand:

                The guitarist in my band got one of these and I was impressed with how sturdy and flexible the tripod legs were. The legs can be rotated laterally, which adds to the versatility and stability of the overall stand. I find that when the legs are rotated to the shape of a sort of bird claw, the stand's pole can be tilted forward to where a boom is generally no longer needed. Our guitarist added a boom, but I (bass player) have elected not to add one. Adjustments to the stand are quick and easy. I ordered mine online and had it shipped to my house. Unfortunately, the universal mic clip that came with the stand was broken. If everything was intact I would have given 5 stars. I opted not to exchange the stand, because I intended to use the mic clip that is specific to my mic anyway. The stand is a little pricey compared to other tripod stands, but I used a 15% off coupon and I'm generally happy with the value.
