Valan pms3 mic stand problem
      #1068119 - 29/09/13 03:23 PM
Hi everyone,

Newbie here, with a very frustrating problem. Not sure if this is the correct forum for this, so please feel free to move it if necessary.

I have a Valans Atlas PMS3 mic stand. It's one of the old ones that can be adjusted for height with the one hand, apparently using some kind of magic woven thingy inside the lower section. It's heavy, solid and up till recently it worked fine...

Problem is the upper section has come out of the lower section, and just won't go back in. It has happened before, but I just pushed it back in with no problems. Now it seems to ground on a metal ring round about where the bottom of the black section is. It seems like it's hitting the actual lower part of the stand, but I don't get it.

Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks in advance for any help. I love the stand and don't really want to have to replace it.
