With the Concealed Boom Durable Stand from Galaxy Audio, you can quickly and easily make a standard straight microphone stand into a fully adjustable boom stand. The patented boom storage lets the boom be concealed inside the extendable upright shaft for use as a standard straight mic stand. The boom will quickly and easily adjust out to convert to a boom arm stand -- you won't need any extra pieces or parts. Thanks to the five disc anti-slip cam, the boom arm can hold up to two pounds when it's fully extended. Additionally, the microphone stand has an aluminum alloy base and durable clutch design.
