Microphone Desk Stand

Microphone (or mic) stands provide the support for lots of different sizes and shapes of microphones. They allow the performer (musician or spoken word) to free up their hands to play an instrument, hold copy to be read, move around on stage while singing or isolate the microphone from sound sources that might cause distortion or feedback.

There are various versions of the straight stand known as the "desk stand" (short version of straight stand) and heavy duty mic stand (heavier base and larger tubes) to handle heavy microphones. The tubes used on the straight stand are usually a shiny chrome plating (resists scratching) but may also be finished in a matte black which does not reflect light.
