RODE PSA1 Reviews
This thing rocks!
This mic arm rocks. It supports the Shure SM7b well and stays exactly where you position it with no creeping down or anything! And if I move it while recording or streaming, it makes zero noise, and will stay there too. This is high quality for the price for sure. I didn't buy the + model due to the big white RODE branding on it, it doesn't look as good on camera as this one. Prior to this, I had the Elgato Wave Mic Arm LP, and that eventually started creeping when the mic was on it. This Rode one is a definite improvement in every way.
The perfect Boom Arm
This is a great product with minimal assembly. This Boom Arm is ready to go with very little to no adjusting needed depending on the mic you are using. I have a Rode Pod Mic and a Shure SM7B and both work great with no adjusting. It is great that you can mount to the side of your desk or table or use the added attachment and mount directly to the desk with a little drilling. I highly recommend.
Nicely made and packaged, but could be improved with a spring tension adjustment. As is, the round plates at pivots can be tightened, increasing friction, but a tension adjustment would work better.
Pretty solid boom arm!
This is a well built boom arm that moves pretty easily when need but holds firm. It pairs nicely with Rode NT-USB Mini USB Microphone & On-Stage MBA1500 Boom Arm Riser with Headphone Holder. I would recommend!
Makes for an awesome setup!
Love this boom arm for my Rode Podmic. Looks really nice, and more importantly, is super smooth and sturdy. Well worth the price!
Holding tight so far. Easy to reposition mic. Quality Boom Arm. Only design flaw is cable management. The arm is hollowed out to run a cable through but requires cutting and resoldering the cable. Just use the Velcro ties. Not as pretty but much more functional.
Lives up to reputation
Got this because the old arm made noise when moving and this is a much more solidly built one. You do have to tighten it quite a bit on the top most joint because even with a mic attached, mine tends to bounce up a little upon release. This is why it doesn't get a full 5 stars... I am concerned with how much I am tightening the flat head screw on the joint. That being said everything about it build quality down to the clamp are clearly 5 stars.
The PSA 1 just features a slightly nicer drill mount if you're not using the clamp, and some sleeves for cable management. I bought the original and it's the best boom arm I've ever used. Hands down recommend it to anyone. The weight of the arm sits on the desk, not off of it like the Gator Frameworks series. The Rode PSA 1 is wonderful. Not a single negative thing to say.
