This is easily the best mic stand I've ever used, it's rock solid and has a very large footprint, making it strong in every direction.
The bottom shaft and the legs are very thick, meaning it has a low centre of gravity, and is really difficult to accidentally knock over (if it's even possible to do so).
One slight downside is that it is rather heavy, and can be cumbersome to transport - although it does collapse down into itself quite well, making it small enough to carry under one arm without bumping into everything.
For the price I'm very pleased, and expect it to last many years - also, the parts which may fail can be replaced, meaning you can just fix it, rather than throwing it away if it does break.
I bought it with K&M 25905 'micro-stand', which is a perfect partner for vocals and guitar, as this has quite a high ground clearance, whereas the micro is shorter, thus it fits snugly underneath and can get two mics very close together.
This stand is especially well suited to holding a stereo bar, as it is very strong - even at full extension (vertically and horizontally). I've used it for drum overheads and over an upright piano, it holds my Oktava mk012's very securely for hours without even the suggestion of stooping.
All things considered, exceptionally good stand, easily worth the money (buy cheap, buy twice), and good looking to boot.
Thomann, as usual, were brilliant in their service.
