        I ordered this stand for my child so she could sing while playing the keyboard, I was happy with how well it was made and how sturdy it was. I have paid five times as much for stands that felt like ten times the junk compared to this little beauty! I would buy this again and again, it really is a great product for a great price! I did get the Mic clip that was recommended for it its the QuikLok MP892 Small Mic Clip, make note that you will have to remove the silver screw with needle nose plyers in order for the mic clip to screw onto the stand, there are no instructions and if you do not know this you will think they sent you the wrong mic clip.

        Decent Mic-stand for the price

        Overall a decent mic-stand for the price. It could be a bit more stable. However, it is very versatile for the static interviews that I tend to shoot the most.

            These are used for wired mics in stage performances.
            They do the job securely and are NOT typical of stands in this price range. They are heavy enough to prevent tilt in any configuration. Good construction out of solid materials.

                  Bought this for an interview, had my MKH416 on it. It's fine if the interviewee is seating and the scene is tight. The only problem is the length.

                                Comments about Auray MS-5230F Tripod Microphone Stand with Fixed Boom:

                                At this price range, the MS-5230F is more than acceptable. Its metal construction and refined joints place it an echelon or two up the quality scale. However, it is light and needs weights if being used outside. I use this for internal sound recording and voiceovers, as well as interviews.

                                      This is very good stand. I have 2 mic's hooked up to it. It does a pretty good job. I just have to position it well so it does not tip over.Everything else worked as expected. This is much better product than the one I ordered at @ for a similar amount of money.

                                                Let me start out by saying this: if your microphone doesn't stand on its own then you can just tack this on to your shopping list (more than likely) Anyway, having a stand feels like a solid investment and this stand gives me a feeling of confidence and professionalism. The mic stand handles very well during use, I never have trouble adjusting it. This is a 3-legged microphone although the base could be a little more leveled. Ability to adjust it is very-very versatile and it holds my mic without a hitch. Occasionally, however I will notice that I am either not fastening my stand tightly enough or for some reason gravity will re-adjust it lower after being at a certain angle.

                                                      Overall a decent mic-stand for the price. It could be a bit more stable. However, it is very versatile for the static interviews that I tend to shoot the most.

The boom stand lets you position it wherever you need it. My only complaint is that the screws to tighten it can be a little loose sometimes. Over a very nice stand.

It's plenty stable for that purpose--if you have the boom completely extended just make sure and line it up with one leg of the tripod. I imagine if you snap the plastic cord holders on and off several times a day they won't last long, but that's not an issue for my purposes.

I use it a couple of times a month, and all I wanted was something to hold my microphone. This boom is really amazingly sturdy for the price. I'm guessing that a pro would need something even more substantial, but for people like me, this is more than enough. This should be enough for anyone but someone who's setting it up 5 times a day.
