    Shure S15A reviews

    S15A - Microphone Stand is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 20.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Quality control issues -- caveat I own two S15A stands. One is seven years old, and has been, and still is, a workhorse. My new one (2015) is dysfunctional. Shure changed the design of the knurled collars and nylon rings that hold up each section of the stand. The knurled collars are quite loose, and the rings are not properly sized. As a previous reviewer stated, certain sections of the stand simply won't tighten down. I learned this by surprise on a high profile recording gig, which was compromised. That'll be the last time I mount a pair of Schoeps mics on top of this thing. Shure should offer a recall.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not an improvement over the original S15 I own (2) of these newer S-15 mic stands and (2) of the older model S-15 stands. Shure re-designed the stand, but only added an A to the model number. The old model used flat legs which are smaller/thinner than the current tubelar legs. They were more than strong enough, and resulted in a folded stand that was much smaller and easier to carry. the old model used small setscrews to lock each extended section. I found those much easier to use and more positive in their ability to lock the extended telescopic sections than the current collars. The loss of the setscrews was a serious mistake. The new model looks better but does not work nearly as well as the old one. Additionally, many applications these days require a black mc stand. the Shure S-15 is only available in highly reflective silver. I've already picked up a couple of Manfrotto 1004 BAC 12 ft. stands and prefer them over the new S-15.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great microphone stand There are times when I need to raise a microphone high above a crowd. I was using condenser microphones on a choir in an arena with a central cluster. The center cluster was prohibiting the use of choir mics because of feedback. I decided to use Shure Beta87A mics and they had a workable polar pattern that allowed me to mic the choir successfully. The problem was getting the mics high enough using regular boom stands or straight stands with several attached gooseneck extensions. These telescoping mic stands have solved my problem. I will be purchasing another 3 stands before my next Graduation Ceremony!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does exactly what you'd expect I use this stand to make acoustic recordings of instrumental solo recitals to large orchestras. The variable height gives me flexibility to work in many different size spaces with the same strand. Works quite well up to 12 or 13 feet, feels slightly wobbly at full extension. Also, some minor bowing at full extension. Set-up is very straight forward. Mounting threads at top just barely too large for my K&M 23510 stereo mic bar, making it difficult to get on or off, but the bar still mounts securely. At this price I have yet to see any other stand of comparable height and sturdiness.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Difficult to use I used this stand for recording. The major problem with the stand is the telescopic extentsions. They don't hold. After getting the stand fully extended, the telescopic sections retract. Not a convinient situation while trying to record. Now, it might be me not knowing how these work. However; the stand came with no instructions. The positives of the stand are it's strong construction, but yet it is light.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Kind of hard to use ... I like the height... it lacks adjustable feet for use on sloped auditorium floors ... I find it kind of hard to screw lock each section without loosening the sections below it ... it would function much better with flip locks than it does with screw locks.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Unexpected collapses Very poor design. Sections collapse unexpectedly. Material dents easily with clamp on attachments. For the money this product should be much better. I'm very disappointed. I wish I had found something better.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Improved design This is a great stand for whenever you need to fly mics high above the crowd. I have owned tall mic stands for over 20 years and shure has listed and made each generation of stands better. Best change in this stand is the solid piece that now crowns the stand. Previous generations have had just a threaded aluminum tube at top but this one has a solid metal mount to screw your mic clip or stereo bar onto the stand. Much more durable than earlier models.
