Not as random an observation as perhaps it looks. Been enjoying hanging out here recently
and just noticed a Sound Advice question about heavy duty mic stands (for heavy mics).
Thought of a possible third option...
Good double-braced cymbal stands can be
very affordable, particularly if secondhand. Considerably less than the prices Hugh
mentioned in the article. And while I must admit, with no sense of irony, that Hugh's
professional requirements dwarf mine to extent the sun dwarfs the moon, I think it should
be noted that a poor little audio grunt like me also needs sturdy mic stands at times....
And cymbal booms are certainly farrr more stable than your average black mic
stand. They can also be cannibalized and bastardized quite successfully
Anyway, there it is.
