Like the OP, I too am looking for a mic stand for recording acoustic guitar. My 40 year old boom stand has finally gone to the big studio in the sky.
The problem is, all I need is a straight stand, but they all seem to have a minimum height of 1m, which is too high for a sitting down acoustic guitarist. The alternative is to buy a boom stand and not bother with the boom, without which the height is commonly around 70-80 cm, but involves not using the boom which you've paid for and don't need.
I need a 'straight up' stand to mount my rode stereo bar on for ORTF, or my wide bar for wide spaced.
I've almost lost the will to live in searching for a webpage where the vendor or even manufacturer can be bothered to provide specifications about the working heights of the stand.
Hopefully, some evil person will enjoy humiliating me by pointing to such a website following less than a second searching. :lol:

We have two of these and they are great small footprint, flexible stands for recording acoustics. It is known for its agility around a drum kit to and have even reached a few brass sections in their time. :thumbup:

And amps. Tops!

And yes, K&M all the way!

I have one of these and it's a decent bit of kit, I use mine as an iPad stand but am considering a couple more as the fold up so small.

Ha, yeh perfect! That's the kind of humiliation I'm looking for :D
I'm sure I looked at the K&M site, but must have missed the specs.

Most of the time I use a stand but occasionally I find the H-Clamp useful http://exploraudio.com/categories/instrumounts-h-clamp-/1/.

Once you’ve sorted an optimum position it’s a set and forget solution.
