With the new carbon fiber stand for microphone, WoodWindDesign fullfils a long standing wish of many travelling musicians: A smart, light, small and reliable mic stand that fits in a back pack.
Core of this innovative product is a system of eight nesting carbon fiber tubes (diameters 10 mm to 24 mm). The four smallest and narrowest tubes make the four legs. (Three legs is only in theory more stable, four legs provide a bigger footprint with shorter legs). The legs -with noise reducing and non slippery solid rubber feet- fit in four holes in the Delrin base of the stand. The main vertical pole consits actually of the four other nesting tubes. An extremely simple but effective friction system gives the stand its incredible flexible working height between 63 cm and 170 cm (24″ – 67″), while the transport dimension is only 47 cm ( 18″).
The each of the three friction units between the tubes will carry 3 kg (6.5 lbs) but still these are very easy to handle.
On top of the vertical pole you will find the the removable plug underneath which you can store the four legs during transportation, making it possible to harbour eight carbon fiber tube in as small as one 24 mm tube of 47 cm. This plug is also the 3/8 threaded connector for your microphone clip (not included), the stand comes with a 5/8 thread adapter.
The stand is very light, only 630 grams (1.4 lbs) but the extremely low centre of gravity combined with the big footprint give it an excellent stability. Moreover, there is the possibility to even enhance the stability for extreme circumstances, by adding weight to the base. This can be done with for instance filled flexible water bottles (not included)These can be hung onto the hook, specially added to the stand for this purpose.
This microphone stand can also be used with WoodWindDesign’s tablet holder in stead of a microphone. Only 90 grams light but very secure.
