I like these as well but I've had a few of the cheapo On-Stage stands in use for a LONG time and they still work fine as long as you know how to set them up.the $65 K&M boom stand from GC is pretty good. Definitely a step up from the economy brands.
I don't agree with "the DR stuff is re-branded stuff." Re-branded from what? I've tried all the GC stands and most suck. The DR's have been wonderful for me. Never had one issue with them. They're much thicker than the standard Ultimate or On Stage stuff. K&M and Atlas are better, but DR are cheaper than those. I agree, though, that you get what you pay for in this department. I had all kinds of problems with stands until I bought some DR's and K&M stands. Never had an issue again.I cannot agree with the first reply, you get what you pay for, the guys in my band show up with these 20 dollar boom mic stands, and you could blow them over, they don't even sit level on the floor. The DR stuff is just more re branded stuff at guitar center, for cheap stands I use Jam Stands, for better ones i use Ultimate support or Hercules,
also a fan of the newer Galaxy Audio Convertible stands, it works like a cymbal boom stand the boom portion goes back down into the main tube, so they fold up small and are protected.
Yeah, that's a great point. Although things do get broken and lost. Mic stands seem to be especially prone to this. That's why I mostly buy the cheapest mic stands I can find. They all seem to break or get lost or stolen eventually. Sure the cheap $20 stands suck from the beginning, but that's also their advantage. Because I know they suck, I don't worry about them getting broken, because they will get broken. I also don't worry about them getting lost or stolen when they do get lost or stolen. They're cheapness also means I always bring a backup to gigs where I have to bring my own mic stands. No, they won't hold heavy mics well. But if you torque them down hard enough, they can work. Yes, they do tip over easily. But get some ankle weights and place them on the base and that problem is solved.I quite literally have a set of 6 on stage stands that came with a bag that have been used every weekend for the last year and have held up. If your band is breaking your mic stands so quickly, maybe you should have a talk with your band mates about treating your gear better.
