I've been doing some home recording, and recently had a huge blunder. I've been using my tripod base Hercules mic stand with boom with my LDC. Something went wrong, and my mic stand tipped over into my Hercules triple guitar stand, and that went over two. Now I have a dented mic, and a guitar with a chunk out of the finish. So after the heartbreak, I need some new mic stands. I'm guessing the round weighted stands would be best. I'm still price conscious so I was looking at the entry level stuff by Ultimate (mc-05) and Atlas (MS-10c). I'm also ordering counter weighted booms (Ultimate ULTI-boom). Does anyone have experience with these stands or booms? Any comments on the clutch on either of these or the boom?
