  • Mic stand parts

    I use a lot of round base mic stands, the cheap on stage ones. You know, on sale $20 at the local store. I tend to have at any given time 8-12 of them and because the metal poles are cheap they break at the base over time. That means I have a TON of bases, more than anyone needs, well 7 or 8 anyway. Is there anywhere I can buy the stand w/o the base?

    Maybe, but the bases make good floorcan bases for lighting.

      Maybe see if you can finegal a metal pole from the hardware store to fit the base and your mic holder. You are obviously putting these things though some abuse if they keep breaking. Might as well look into a more heavy duty solution.

    I saw these but the problem is they are more than you paid for the whole stands.

        You can cut the rod off and purchase a die and re-thread them yourself

        Should be fairly easy to do.

          Also, you could cut them as said above and then take them to a home depot.  They have a pipe threading machine that can knock em out quick.

          could be... but there might not be enough beef there to stand the cutting.  I suspect the threads were rolled on, and if threads were actually cut on the remaining "pipe"... the result might be paper thin.

          Which model stands do you have. You can order replacement parts directly from on stage.

            Currently I have 24 12"x12" bases for par car up lighting which haven't been used in... 5 years. These days i use par38 LEDs that are have double yokes, so so much better in many ways. Ill check with on stage parts.
