Overview

The Proline Studio Boom Stand is the perfect multi-use mic stand for stage and studio. It's ideal for vocals or instruments that need overhead miking such as drums, cymbals, choirs, pianos, ensembles, and more. The PLSB1's wide-stance, tripod base with sturdy locking casters anchor it securely to the floor. Its large diameter main-shaft tubing extends the stand's height from 53" to 85". The boom arm extends up to 92" to suit any mic position, and the 2.3lb. adjustable weight is the perfect counterbalance for large diaphragm microphones. Just a half-turn of the mic stand's advanced tilt clutch makes changing mic angles quick and easy. Finally, its fully folding lightweight design allows for easy transportation in the compact folded position with no heavy cast-iron base to lug around.

These mic stands are a paradox. The chassis is built like a tank, all heavy-gauge steel and welded construction. But the fittings for the moving parts are flimsy and horrible. Read the other reviews to explain how they fail. Read my review if you want to FIX them! If you are the least bit handy with tools, you can turn these stands from junk into what they were supposed to be -- secure, smooth-operating, heavy-duty equipment -- using standard hardware store parts, for about fifteen-and-change USD per stand. Definitely worth doing now that they are on closeout.

FIRST: Replace that faulty flip latch on the boom:
Drill a 1/4" hole in the top of the tilt head, and tap it with threads to accept a 5/16"-18tpi male clamping knob. This will completely cure the slipping and rotating of the boom. This solution will tend to mar the paint job on the boom, but hey, the set screw on the counterweight was already doing that.

SECOND: Upgrade the locking bolt assembly on the boom tilt head:
Replace the original carriage bolt with one that is 1/2" longer, add some fender washers, a rubber washer, and a standard female clamping knob. The fender washers act as shims in the assembly, making the action smoother. The rubber washer acts as a brake when tightened. It takes one 3/8" flat washer, three 5/16" fender washers, and one 5/16" rubber washer. It should be obvious where they fit into the assembly to take up the chatter. Just slip them into the loose spots. A standard 5/16"-18tpi female clamping knob means no more stripped threads when locking down the swivel head.

That's it! Enjoy your upgraded mic stand. If you were careful, the mods look stock, and it should last you a lifetime.

Great Microphone boom

By CARL MCMILLAN,

from Jasper, Texas

Comments about Proline Studio Boom Mic Stand:

It is an excellent Microphone Studio Boom, it has a very long reach and wide base for stability. For me it was an easy assembly. The counter weight only needed the set knob to be loosened to easily slide over the shaft. Good price.

        Built like a tank...but flawed

        By Christian Marcelli

        from Orlando, FL

        Comments about Proline Studio Boom Mic Stand:

        This mic stand is a tank. It easily holds two condenser mics for overhead applications. Drawbacks: The counterweight didn't fit properly and had to be forced on. Instructions were useless or non-existent. The counterweight didn't fit, but I didn't know if there was some "trick" to getting it on the boom. Who knows! They didn't include instructions for that! Not cool for a $150 stand. Of course, the thing is built like a tank!

        Almost Garbage

        By Robert Kyser

        from Fort Worth, TX

        Comments about Proline Studio Boom Mic Stand:

        I have a heavy condenser and a reflection filter (roughly 10 lbs). The vertical and horizontal extension (and locking are fine). The boom counter weight is adequate. The HUGE problem is the boom latch-lock. It is garbage and will not keep the boom from sliding back. ALSO: it will not keep the boom from yawing, which means my setup (even without the reflection filter) drops upside down. I'm not giving it 1 star ONLY because I'm still using it till I buy another one (by rigging it). Poor Quality.

        Junk

        By Brian

        from Vegas

        Comments about Proline Studio Boom Mic Stand:

        Terrible stand. Poor construction. Boom won't locked stay in place in both tilt and extension. Where the boom attaches to the vertical part of the stand is also loose so the boom wobbles around. When raising the main part of the stand up the stand comes apart when you get to the top, just pulls right off without stopping. Two microphones fell to the floor that were at the end of the extended boom when this happened. I exchanged 4 of of these stand. Three that were bent up out of the box and the last one had deformed threads on the end of the boom and I couldn't attach a mic holder. All had other minor problems like wheels not threaded right, bent boom arm, cracked plastic parts and such. I would suggest paying a few bucks more and getting something better.

          Good price for the stand. Unfortunately the first one was broken and the website passed the buck to the store who passed it back to my local GC store. If I knew that the first time I would've called them first.

          Verified Buyer

          Comments about Proline Studio Boom Mic Stand:

          As said in another review, the stand is a conundrum—great bones, but the details need changing. I bought two on clearance and paid less than one decent small K&M stand. Unmodified I've loaded it with reasonably heavy mics—EV RE27, Sennheiser MK8, both in shock mounts, extended the boom almost the whole way horizontally—not a problem. The casters are rinkydink and absolutely need replacing. But that's not much money. For a project studio and occasional location work this stand is a steal. It's too big for an 8x10 bedroom studio, but you might get it anyway as it's so much more stable than the the cheap stand and boom sets you're tempted to buy. I broke my own rule about not buying cheap stands when I bought these. But I saved about $200 from what I would have purchased. 4 stars for the $ to utility ratio for a small, moderately active studio.

          To many plastic parts that do not hold up well. One of the wheels in the box was already broken when I received it. Biggest complaint is the slip mechanism that holds the boom in place. Not a very well thought out device. Vibration while playing causes this clutch mechanism, to loosen and the boom moves!

            I am a video professional who purchased this for use on recording both interviews and VO work. there is nothing to recommend about this stand. From the plastic wheels to the Boom Latch, to the tilt stay which has broken down as the bolt is stripped and the bushing has fallen apart. As this is the second one I have used (GC made no qualms about replacing it) it is truly a waste of time to even consider. A "0" star rating.

            Tall, heavy-weight, portable & flexible

            By ADAM LANSKY

            from Little Rock, AR

            Comments about Proline Studio Boom Mic Stand:

            This boom stand comes with a 5-year manufacturer warranty that is handled directly by Guitar Center covering faulty components. Anyone that has problems with non-locking components or "yawning" while set up should return it to the nearest store or call GC.com to file a claim. The stand extends about 14' in the air & can support a good deal of weight -- I am currently using this in an orchestral setting with a three-microphone rig on top. All components work very well & it looks professional. The boom frame is made of robust aluminum & has optional plastic rolling/locking wheels. It meets my expectations & I believe it will do so for the next five years at minimum -- a great investment for my business. The only improvements that could be made are the inclusion of a 30-pound sandbag to put on the legs during operation, as well as metal/rubber wheels. Make sure that if you order one from a store they package it well!!!

            Good quality, but not without flaw.

            By Michael Blaeser

            from Brookfield, WI

            Comments about Proline Studio Boom Mic Stand:

            The quality of this product is excellent, but some minor weak points keep it from earning a 5 out of 5. I purchased this stand for my condenser microphone, which is on the lighter side of the spectrum. Unpacking and Parts: Unpacking the product was not difficult, it came mostly assembled, with the exception of the 3 plastic wheels provided. Unfortunately, I found that the heavy weight of the stand absolutely shattered one of them, rendering the other two useless, so I would suggest first opening the package in the store (if you buy it in person) to make sure all the parts are intact. Product also comes with fasteners for a single cable, an added plus. IT [should] be noted for those who are not planning on using the wheels that the stand does already have rubber padding on the feet, which is nice for those of us with floors we want to keep nice and scratch-free. After Setup: The construction of the stand, with the exception of the wheels, is excellent. However, the fastener latch that prevents the boom from sliding at the pivot point is rather weak, and tends to allow the boom to both rotate and sometimes slide when moved roughly. The reach of the boom and the positionable counter-weight is sufficient to prevent unwanted movement. This is somewhat offset though by the rather large profile it takes up on the floor, so this may prove bothersome for those with little floor space. Conclusion: All in all, I am happy with the product, and I plan on continuing to using it for many years to come. I give the product a 4 out of 5. Pros: -Heavy duty construction. -Good base and counter weight for heavier condenser microphones. -Highly adjustable. Cons: -Expensive. -Boom fastener is weak, needs reworking. -Wheels broken in package. -Base profile is large.

            These are really trash. The latch that hold the boom was broken out of the box and the boom arms are rattly and cheap feeling. I will be returning and buying something from a better brand.
