This is a microphone stand with boom telescopic XXL XXL 125-205 cm.
Weight: about 10 kg!
Provided with very heavy weight against-and wide tripod!
Height adjustable from 165 to 350cm Telescopic into several parts with screw and locking pin.
I use it for a few months. I wanted to have in my home studio with hefty foot long boom so you can install it in a corner behind my desk chief, and then use a microphone in the middle of the room!
And this "machine" that allows, indeed!
I have not tried other models "super foot", no. Just feet classic brands: no comparison!
What I like most is its build quality. Elements are very strong! We feel there is the material used! The black finish looks quality. Sections and bars are in the format of the report engine: very big!
What I like least: the main clamping system at the level of the articulation of the boom and foot. It is not strong enough if you start to use heavy weights at the end of boom, and even less if you deploy strongly boom! And even less if you do not compensate for the decline of the masses against-weight! But as you can see, this limitation is quite artificial in prevailing conditions, this clamping system is actually quite sufficient to fact!
In fact, without deploying the boom, thus remaining at an extension of 1.25 m, it can easily fit a medium NT2A with anti-vibration and anti-pop! This non-controlled weight decline. Tightening resist. But if you want to get the 2 meter extension, then it may not hold the same tight fit, unless the setback for the cons-weight!
In addition, we must also take into account the overall stability of the tripod. Against the weight is very big and heavy, but will probably not compensate NT2A complete with a large extension boom. The tripod on the ground, however, is very broad in its greater openness, which can also compensate.
In fact, I use the tripod deployed half seulempent and against the weight of the boom-left near the joint clamping, because I do not have much back where Superlux is placed. I therefore stabilized by straps securing the "scratch" in various solid and heavy furniture which are not far away.
I then remains only the problem of main clamp. I must say that because I want to use a full NT2A 2 meters of boom extension, plus 1.6kg the small screen sound sE Electronics! So with a total weight of over 3kg in total, with various adapters! I would say at least 3.5 kg ...
So I use a small ssystème "D" block for clamping in the position that suits me: I put a small piece of solid metal in the arc hole clamping system, which prevents accidental slippage.
In conclusion, very good stuff! Complete! Very effective when used in "normal" conditions, so with a good drop away allowing the cons-weight and thereby assist the clamping system balancing masses. Wide tripod, allowing too, with a floor space sufficient stabilization impeccable, with consistent use of weight-cons.
But if use more specific, like mine, with limited down (cons-weight) and floor space (open stand) with more extensive needs enough extension and weight, then you must use some systems "D" and other tie downs, and it's pure happiness anyway, because the "craft" also provides its mission with gusto, if it helps just a little ...
Finally, the price is truly justified by comparison to what we receive! I would say it is very content!
When you leave the machine out of its box the first time, it is really impressive! We know that in principle we must receive a "trick" sturdy and solid, but it still impresses the first time, especially if you will be using in a small home studio!
We said: "Mashed! But how I will manage such a monster!"
