I've seen manufacturers tout their booms as "ideal for kick drums and amps" but upon reviewing their specs you discover the boom length is an overly superfluous 16". What?? This one truly is ideal for smaller amps, kick drums, and any arrangement where space is a premium. No counterweight means it really does cram into tight areas when married to a sturdy, weighty base like the Audix MB Stand I'm using in front of an Eden 1x10 combo bass amp. The On-Stage Mini Boom is built shockingly well especially for the price, supporting my hefty original CAD E-100 mic without fail. Solidly crafted with reassuring metal. Unassumingly heavy in your hands. Plenty of teeth means tons of choices to find the optimal angle for you. Standard thread sizes. Super satisfied with this purchase.
