Everyone has different preferences, and we hope our frank reviews will make your decision easier. First, we will take a look at the Hercules MS533B Hideaway Boom Stand. This boom stand from Hercules is all about providing you with convenience during a performance. The boom 30.7 inches and you can adjust both the height and the angle in a second by loosening the knob and adjusting it to a position you find suitable. Similarly the height can be adjusted between 42 and 94 inches. The best thing this set up is the Quick-N EZ adaptor that allows you to quickly and easily slide the microphone in. This makes it an ideal stand for those hurried setups where you do not have a lot of time to fix equipment. The base is a tripod stand , and is super light too - weighing in at 5.2 pounds.
The challenger is the DR Pro DR259 MS1500BK Low Profile. This low level boom stand is every bit professional. It is also super customizable in terms of length. From boom to tripod legs, you have ample range. Each leg extends up to 19 inches and the boom arm can go from 19 inches to 31 inches. The height can be adjusted between 9 inches and 17 inches. All the tubes are considerably thick and finished with powder coating to provide necessary protection. DR makes professional quality products and therefore the price is a bit higher as compared with others. However, you get something that will last for years to come.
