      I bought this stand to use with my Behringer Ultravoice XM8500.

      Unfortunately, I was disappointed to find the clip was too small to hold the mic properly, (I could only get it over the very end of the mic before it would go no further), and I couldn't use the clip that came with my microphone because it didn't fit (the screw threads on top of this stand are way to wide to fit).

      However, the problems are more about me buying the wrong thing than this being a bad product. For the right sized mic, it's stable and does its job.

      Small but not great

      By Lillnikke

      from New York

      Comments about QuikLok A-188 Desktop Microphone Stand:

      I needed a small table stand for interviews and such, thought this would be a good stand to use with my shotgun mic. But the mount is to big to fit my mic and I can't change if to my regular shock mount either. Not happy with this purchase.

          I often need a mic stand in a press conference situation and this item does the job very well. Folds up compact for stowing in the gear bag, yet very versatile and durable.

          Lightweight But Sturdy Mic Stand

          By MattMediaPro

          from Washington, DC

          Comments about QuikLok A-188 Desktop Microphone Stand:

          I needed a mic stand for video interviews. One that I could mount a shotgun mic on but was still light enough and small enought to travel with. The QuickLok A-188 fit the bill. It's three legs fold to make it streamlined so it can easily fit in my bag. The neck can raise to about 7 inches. Great piece of gear and inexpensive too.

            I am impressed with the build quality and design of this compact stand. It is one of those items which feel nice to handle and you know it's functionality will mean it will always have a place in your kit bag.

            Good work.

                  Comments about QuikLok A-188 Desktop Microphone Stand:

                  I have several uses for this stand. Interviews conducted using a standard mike; on-location/travel recording of guide voice/guitar/keyboard with my Røde xy mic. I've found the stand to be sturdy and it provides quite a bit of stability with either mic (the stand has some heft, it's not just plastic; some people might find the extra weight a bother, but it really helps stabilize the mike stand). The clip is small but I never planned to use that anyway; I just replace it with the clips that came with my mics.

                  If you want a portable yet sturdy stand for your mic(s), this is a good one, and the price is right.

                  B&H delivered it within 2 days of my ordering. I was surprised that it made it from NYC to Austin that quickly. B&H really have their logistics down (I've ordered quite a few things from them).

                      It's a great little stand. Initial inspection had me believe thing the grip was too small but its quite flexible.
                      I'm currently using it to support a Guitar Hero mic.
                      Can't argue with the price either!

                            I use this for podcasting, and so far it has been perfect. It holds the mic just fine, and the clip has a fair amount of give to accommodate most hand-held mics.

                            It's also very light and folds up nicely to stow if I need to take it with me.

                            If you're using heavier studio mics, you might want to consider a heavier base, but so far this has done exactly what I need.

                                For the price this little guy is hard to beat for a sturdy, portable, and cheap stand. It is metal and plastic, and not too heavy...it folds up for easy storage and expands up for when you want to use it. Very pleased with this stand so far.

                                  I bought this stand to use with my Behringer Ultravoice XM8500.

                                  Unfortunately, I was disappointed to find the clip was too small to hold the mic properly, (I could only get it over the very end of the mic before it would go no further), and I couldn't use the clip that came with my microphone because it didn't fit (the screw threads on top of this stand are way to wide to fit).

                                  However, the problems are more about me buying the wrong thing than this being a bad product. For the right sized mic, it's stable and does its job.

                                    I use this stand recording weather forecasts (mp3 files) into a laptop computer. Mic movement can cause undesirable results, so a mic stand was necessary and needed to be portable for travel. A solid product, does not appear to be very breakable. Looking forward to years of use.

                                      Traveling and doing VO work on the fly, this is a great little stand.
                                      Compact enough to not take up much room and solid enough to
                                      hold my Shure Beta 87A.
                                      Happy I bought this!
