I bought one of these to mic guitar/bass/harmonica amplifiers. It works great and weighs less and takes less space than the weighted base kind. I am using SM57's and it handles it well. NOTE TO THE GUY THAT THOUGHT IT HAD THE WRONG SIZE THREADS - There is an INSERT that fits on the 1/4-20 thread to make it fit a mic clip. When I took the clip off mine, the insert stayed in the clip. I used a pliers to get the insert out (I barely needed the pliers). The 1/4-20 thread works for camera tripod mounts. With the insert, it fits mic clips.
The description says the 'stand accommodates different styles of microphone clips through universal threads that accept any standard threaded mic clip.' That is false. It has a very very small post and thread that is even smaller than a 3/8"F. So you can't even use a 3/8"F to 5/8"M adapter on it to make it work with either standard. Blatantly false advertising.
I bought this mic stand for traveling because of its small, compact size and low weight. It's a pretty solid metal stand with rubber stops on the legs to help grip to surfaces. If I was using it for a dynamic mic (like a Shure SM58) it would work wonderfully. However, I use it for a condenser mic (a Studio Projects C1) that rests in a cradle. The mic is pretty heavy so if I have it upright it tips over very easily. The mic and stand have fallen to the ground more than once because of the poor balance and lack of counter balance of this stand. Also, the center shaft often slips down because the tightening ring doesn't grip it terribly well. The shaft also only allows for a few inches of adjustment, so I've had to stack books and other things beneath it to get it to the height I need depending on where I'm at. The solution I've developed is to have the mic resting horizontally and spinning it in the cradle so the face is to the side. While this puts more wear on the cradle itself, it helps to balance it slightly better so it falls over less. Overall, I would rate this stand as great for dynamic mics sitting on a desktop or table where they won't need much adjusting. For condensers, however, I find the design rather poor and I probably wouldn't buy it again unless it was on sale in the $10-$12 range.
I have a small DJ business and was tired of laying my mic down on the table in between songs even to the point where I broke a mic because it rolled off the table. Not anymore, this stand hold the mic perfectly adjusts to my stool height and allows the mic to be where I need it. Kudos to the other reviewers who helped me make my decision on this one.
