Handy stand for not too much $
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
Great entry level stand. It's more compact than most boom stands, but still expands to reach drum overhead or tall person height. Seems sturdy and reliable. I just purchased a 2nd one after using one for over a year now. The only con I can think of is that because it is lighter than your average boom stand, it may require a cinder block or some creative use of duct tape for windy outdoor gigs.
Pros: Compact Sturdy Reliable
Cons: May need anchoring in windy locations.
