Atlas Sound DS5E Reviews
A SOLID CLASSIC
When it comes to the simple, humble tools, it speaks volumes about a company how they make them. There are plenty of table stands like this one, but Atlas makes them a bit better, a bit more polished (particularly the base), a nicer black pipe...it all adds up to a good-looking, quality stand that sits easily on a coffee table if needed, without being intrusive. It holds my AKG 414 XLS with shock mount; it holds my small condensers, my short shotgun... It is simple, good quality, nice looking and reasonably priced from a company that has done stands for decades. You need a table stand, go with this.
Nice desk stand
Works for me.
Support my Shure SM7B perfectly on my Desk
I do boradcasting online and needed good desk mic stand. I was hesitant to buy this product, because Shure SM7B is very heavy mic. It turns out that this Stand can hold SM7B just fine.
Nothing Beats An Atlas Stand
I purchased two of these Atlas desk stands recently for a less than noble reason: I'm rotating some of my mic's out of the mic locker to put them on display for a week or two at a time at my remodeled studio. Just for a little visual aesthetics and eye candy for clients to take in. The DS-5E is a very simple but effective desk stand. If you're remotely concerned it won't be high enough (fixed 5 height), then take a look at the Atlas DS-7E (adjustable 8 to 13 height) instead. I remember playing in garage bands back in the 60's and all we had were Atlas mic stands. Atlas has always made a quality product you can rely on. Some things never change.
A nice product
I bought this used I think, like I do 90% of my gear. I found this to be perfectly suited to my needs. I have no SUPER-heavy mics, but this certainly seems capable of holding any mic you have, and if you HAVE a super-heavy mic, then you likely also tried to find a super heavy stand for it. This will do for 80% of your needs, it is cheap and it works.
Atlas is always trustworthy
The hallmark of a good company is how well it makes the simple things. The humble table stand is one such example. Many stands have too light a base, not this one. The thread is machined correctly, so the stud screws in/out without binding, and the black color of the pipe is downright elegant. A basic good tool, built correctly out of good materials; that's why Atlas has the good reputation it has. You need a table stand, get this one.
Smaller than I expected but good for its intended purpose
I ordered this to attach a boom arm and mic my bass drum. Its way too small and light for that without adding a lot more weight to the stand. Its also a little too small and light to hold a large diaphragm condenser mic in a suspension mount without a boom if it's pointing straight or angled forward at all. It is great for use as a desktop mic stand even with a large diaphragm mic in suspension mount though because it will be angled back some and it balances nicely. This should also work nicely to mount my iPhone while I'm playing guitar along to an app or music etc. I'll be ordering a heavier/larger base for bass drum miking.
it's a desk stand
There is not much to say about this. It's a microphone desk stand. This one is nicely made and should last a lifetime.
