just throwing it out there, I play a lot, and have a tendency toward abject gear abuse. I've always just bought whatever mic stands and speaker stands are the cheapest. I'm at the point now where I want to buy some stands that will outlive me. they have to stand up to whatever I decide to put them through, and I play a ton of outside gigs in the summer right by the chesapeake bay and atlantic ocean, so they will be exposed to salt air and the elements. this is the 3rd year running that I'm gonna need to buy stands, so what's everybody using and why? my biggest pet peeves: speaker stands where the tention knob/device/flange/whatever wears out (mine have screwdrivers shoved in them at shows now) and mic stand booms with that little rubber bushing in there that tears up and plastic bits that break/fall off/unscrew all the time.
No announcement yet.
HELP! tired of buying new stands every summer!!
