        Comments about Ultimate Support JS-KD50 Kick Drum/Amp Mic Stand:

        I needed this for mic'ing several different guitar amps, keeping in mind that the center of the cone on most combo amps is approx. 8 inches from the floor, depending on the amp. The more common straight "shorty" stands I've tried didn't allowing me to position the mic directly in front of the speaker cone and on axis (esp. since that particular point varies slightly from amp to amp). The fixed height stands were either too short or too tall to hit the center of the cone, and even the ones that telescope a couple of inches tend to be too tall even in the lowest position once the height of the mic clip is factored in. So this mini-boom is the perfect solution. The fact that the base isn't round also allows you to push it closer to the amp. Hardware seems solid, the weight of the base is plenty adequate for an SM-57, and the clips for securing the mic cable to the stand are a nice plus. It's worth noting that the base (although more compact) is heavier than the round bases found on cheap shorty stands, such as the On-Stage brand.One other note. B&H and every other website that sells this stand lists the boom arm's length as 15.75 inches; the actual length is 19.5 inches. Jam Stands must have provided incorrect specs when they first shipped this stand to retailers. I contacted Jam Stands about this, but they refused to do anything about it....I asked if they could send me a shorter boom, such as the 15.75 inch one found on the KD-55. Oh well, still works fine, I just make sure that the boom's length extends inward toward the center of my amp rather than away, so it's less likely to get bumped during gigs.All in all very very happy with this stand. Every other place that sells this stand charges roughly [$] !!!

        Comments about Ultimate Support JS-KD50 Kick Drum/Amp Mic Stand:

        Using it for a Shure Beta 52A but must keep the boom relatively short and over the longest part of the base.
        nothing particularly great about it.

        Not sure about how this will be on a wood stage yet.
