Too late I see, but I was going to suggest that if Guitar Center didnít have any replacement booms, you can find them on line at Sweetwater, ZZ Sounds or Musicianís Friend. You might want to return the stand you bought and go that route anyway. It has lots of bad reviews on Guitar Centerís web site. Either that or wait until your local GC has the DR Pro in stock. After all, you did say you wanted a "better" mic stand...

Thank you so much, Wayne, for weighing-in even though you knew I'd pulled the trigger. The DR Pro is substantially heavier and sturdier than the other models I tried, and it comes with a 5 year warranty. That alone was well worth the trip across town to a different Guitar Center branch. They even exchanged the one I bought yesterday instead of making me drive back to the first store!

And thank you too, cullingman. I'll keep that one on my radar in case I need a backup.

Excellent, Lou! And Kudos to AudiocRaver the recommending the DR – I don’t pay enough attention to mic stand brands to know one from another. Heavier-duty and with a five year warranty - good chance you'll never have to buy another one, at least for as long as a you only use it to take REW measurements.

Regarding your first one - I tell ya what, you couldn’t imagine a more light-duty use for a mic stand than occasional residential use taking REW measurements, and using a lightweight mic to boot (as compared to say, a heavy hand-held wireless). Any stand that can’t hold up to that –it’s simply disgraceful.

Regards,
Wayne
